May 16 / Second Rehearsal San Marino: please break the chain!
Olivier Rocher (France)
VIENNA, AUSTRIA – Ok, we all have a specific affection for the tiny republic. Ok, for the first time two former junior participants make it to the senior edition. Ok, Ralf Siegel is a Eurovision legend (and almost a Sammarinese citizen now). But I think San Marino has reached our limits this year and should change recipe. Even in the 1990’s, this song would have sounded a bit outdated and messy. Michele and Anita have good voices and deliver a nice performance. The youngsters are doing their best on stage, but how can you fight with such an anthem? Fortunately, the staging is amazing with great light effects and a very beautiful background. Could we have another Sammarinese surprise this year?
