San Marino & Luxembourg will not collaborate for Vienna
LUXEMBOURG – The speculations for joint participation of San Marino and Luxembourg in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest are now officially over: the two countries will not participate under a joint bid in Vienna as Luxembourg Wort reported tonight.
The reason is that Thierry Mersch didn’t manage to raise the amount for his Eurovision participation necessary for his duet with a San Marino representative. Culture Minister Maggy Nagel didn’t manage to convince the government also to give the necessary funds for possible joint participation with the small Italian nation. The amount is estimated around 100,000 Euros but there is no official confirmation for it.
