San Marino in the Eurovision Song Contest
◄2021 2022

San Marino is scheduled to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy. The Sammarinese broadcaster, San Marino RTV (SMRTV), will organise the new national final Una voce per San Marino ("A voice for San Marino") to decide their representative.

Background

Prior to the 2022 contest, San Marino has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 11 times since their first entry in 2008.[1] The nation's debut entry, "Complice" performed by Miodio, failed to qualify for the final and placed last in the semi-final it competed in.[1] San Marino subsequently did not participate in both the 2009 and 2010 contests, citing financial difficulties.[2][3] In 2014, Valentina Monetta represented San Marino for the third year in a row,[4] and managed to bring the nation to the final for the first time with "Maybe", placing 24th.

The second time San Marino qualified for the final, and the country's best result to date, was in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, where Serhat represented San Marino for the second time and finished in 19th place in the final, singing "Say Na Na Na".[1] After planning to take part in the 2020 contest with Senhit and her song "Freaky!" before it was cancelled, San Marino participated in 2021 with Senhit and the song "Adrenalina". For the first time ever, the nation qualified for the final two times in a row. In the final, Senhit (accompanied by rapper Flo Rida) achieved 22nd place.

Before Eurovision

Una voce per San Marino

On 5 April 2021, SMRTV confirmed the participation of San Marino in the 2022 contest and the introduction of Una voce per San Marino ("A voice for San Marino"), a new national final format to select the nation's entry as a part of a 2021–2022 tourism events calendar introduced by the government of San Marino.[5]

Format

On 22 September 2021, SMRTV revealed that the event will be held between December 2021 and February 2022. All competing artists will initially be divided into two categories: Emerging and Big. Emerging artists were invited to attend an academy in the Teatro Titano in the City of San Marino from 13–17 December 2021 and 3–11 January 2022, acting as preliminary castings. Big artists, also nine in total, will be directly invited to the final by Media Evolution SRL. From 13–17 February 2022, a series of semi-finals will decide the nine Emerging acts that will move on to the Grand Final to join the nine already-selected Big artists, with the top three of the Grand Final also being awarded €1000, €2000 and €7000, respectively.[6] The first four members of the jury for this category, announced on 16 November 2021, are Emilio Munda, Roberta Faccani, Roberto Costa [it] and Steve Lyon.[7][8] The remaining three jury members for the category were announced on 31 December 2021, and are Maurizio Raimo, Nabuk and Mimmo Paganelli.[9]

Competing entries

SMRTV opened a submission period on 22 September 2021 for emerging artists and composers to submit their entries. On 16 November 2021, the broadcaster announced it had received over 200 applications, particularly from Germany, Russia and Sweden, but also from other European countries, the USA, and Australia.[10][11] It was later confirmed that there had been 585 applications received overall, out of which 299 were selected to take part in the Emerging acts round.[12]

Emerging acts auditions

The Emerging acts auditions took place between 13–17 December 2021 and 3–11 January 2022. From December and over the course of two months, a total of 299 participants were announced to be taking part in the auditions, despite only 282 being listed.[13][12] From the Emerging acts round, it was confirmed that 60 entrants had qualified. They were revealed on 17 January 2022.[6] Highlights from the auditions were broadcast on San Marino RTV over three consecutive Fridays from 14 January to 28 January 2022.[14]

Semi-finals

On 17 January 2022, the sixty international semi-finalists were announced by SMRTV, along with six Sammarinese artists. The sixty international artists will compete across three semi-finals from 13 February to 15 February 2022. Three acts will qualify from each semi-final, along with a further three Sammarinese artists on 16 February 2022. A second-chance round on 17 February 2022 will allow a further four of the previously-eliminated international artists to qualify. A final for the emerging artists will be held on 18 February 2022, where 9 of the 16 qualified acts will proceed to the grand final.[15]

Final

The Grand Final will take place on 19 February 2022 at the Teatro Nuovo in Dogana. A total of 18 artists will participate, nine from the Emerging section and nine from the Big section. A jury will decide the top three, with the winner going on to represent the country at Eurovision 2022.

The nine "established" acts competing in the Big category are all Italian.[16]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. San Marino has been placed into the second semi-final, to be held on 12 May 2022, and has been scheduled to perform in the first half of the show.[17]
