San Marino at Eurovision
As one of the smallest countries in Europe, San Marino made its debut in the competition in 2008 with Miodio and the song “Complice”. Since then they have participated in the competition 11 times (3 of which where they qualified for the Grand Final), and their best result was in 2019, with Serhat and “Say Na Na Na”.
Their recent participation saw them being represented by Senhit (who represented them in 2011, and was set to represent them in 2020), with the song “Adrenalina”. At her performance in Rotterdam, she was joined by American rapper Flo Rida, where San Marino qualified for the Grand Final for the second time in a row. Overall, San Marino placed 22nd, receiving 50 points from the Jury and Televoters.
