San Marino -

SMTV in San Marino has revealed their revised version of their song for the Eurovision Song Contest, it will now be called The Social Network Song (OH OH – Uh - OH OH) and sung by Valentina Monetta.

On the 18th of March we announced that the original song entered by SMTV for San Marino, titled Facebook, Uh, Oh, Oh was found to be in breach of one of the contest rules.

"The lyrics and/or performance of the songs shall not bring the Shows, the ESC as such or the EBU into disrepute. No lyrics, speeches, gestures of a political or similar nature shall be permitted during the ESC. No swearing or other unacceptable language shall be allowed in the lyrics or in the performances of the songs. No commercial messages of any kind shall be allowed. A breach of this rule may result in disqualification." says the point 1.2.2.g of the Rules of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.

The Reference Group concluded that due to the title and repetitive presence of the trademark 'Facebook', the original song contained a commercial message and was therefore not eligible to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest.

In support of SMTV's participation, it was decided to give the broadcaster the opportunity to either deliver a new version of the lyrics that does not include a reference to Facebook, or to deliver a new song. The deadline set for the delivery of new lyrics and/or song was set to Friday, 23rd of March at 12:00 CET.

This evening SMTV presented a revised version of the song, with a new version of the lyrics, and is now to be called The Social Network Song (OH OH – Uh - OH OH).

San Marino will the 11th song in the running order in the First Semi-Final on the 22nd of May in Baku.

    Artem-Tom she is awful sorry. You also commented on the uk entry being old dont you think that's being a little bit ageist.

    He is a decent singer and probably have more longtivity than she would ever have. But we all have our choices report to the moderator

    Zuckerberg's team should contract her for European market after the contest. It's super pop trash which works on more levels. Social analysis and all. Music so stupifying it makes you rage, make fun of her, but ultimately...make you think. report to the moderator

    Valentina Monetta is a charismatic singer who has given us a lively and bouncing performance for a rather sedentary activity. I believe that the song's message is timely and applicable as it speaks of our computer-connected relationships. Although she is smiling and upbeat during the song, the lyrics suggest to me that she warning that the computer interface may be inordinately replacing the human interface. In this way I found it to be a good thought -provoking song. report to the moderator
