Our Countdown To Eurovision 2017 is underway and today we check out this year’s San Marino entry.
San Marino is a relative minnow when it comes to the competition, having only competed eight times including this year.
Of those eight times, only once have they made it through to the Grand Final – in 2014.
Undeterred, however, they’re sending two contestants to Ukraine this year, performing a duet… Valentina Monetta and Jimmie Wilson.
Valentina is no stranger to Eurovision competition, having previously performed on behalf of her country in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
But she’ll be joined on stage this year by theatre and R&B performer Jimmie Wilson.
‘Spirit Of The Night’ is an uptempo dance/pop number that reminds us of some of those ’80s soundtrack classics.
Jimmie’s voice is like caramel and works quite well with Valentina’s.
Whether they make it through the second semi-final remains to be seen, but we’ll give this six points.
