San Marino -

Valentina Monetta will be representing San Marino for the second successive year in Europe's Favourite TV Show. We can now reveal that her song Crisalide (Chrysalis) will have its worldwide debut on Friday the 15th March at 20:25 CET, and you will be able to watch it on eurovision.tv.

Ever since the 30th of January, when it was announced that Valentina Monetta would be representing San Marino in the Eurovision Song Contest, everyone has been waiting to find out what the song Crisalide (Chrysalis) would sound like.

Now the waiting is almost over, as we can announce that the song will be premiered on Friday the 15th of March at 20:25 CET. You will be able to watch it via a live webstream on the San Marino TV website and on eurovision.tv.

Valentina Monetta is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest, as last year she also represented her country in Baku, with The Social Network Song (Oh Oh - Uh - Oh Oh) which finished in 14th place in the first Semi-Final. This year she will hope to take San Marino into the Grand Final for the first time,

Someone else who is more than familiar with the contest, is the composer of the song, Ralph Siegel. This will be his 21st entry into the Eurovision Song Contest, and the second year in a row that he has entered for San Marino. The lyrics for Crisalide have been written by Mauro Balestri.

Immediately following the presentation of the song, Valentina's brand new website www.valentinamonetta.com will go online, and will feature the music video of Crisalide. The song will also be available on ITunes from 21:00 CET on the 15th March.

San Marino have been drawn to perform in the first half of Semi-Final Two on Thursday the 16th of May.

    Everybody deserves a second chance, even if you sung that stupid 'Facebook song'.

    Ralph Siegel should be banned actually, so I fear this song too. But as Valentina is a good singer, maybe she can make something out of it. Just glad Lyss Assia does not re-enter ESC via San Marino. report to the moderator

    I hope she shows off her beautiful jazz voice in this song, last year was not her type of song, what were San Marino thinking? Maybe they were trying to get publicity before releasing an actual good song. report to the moderator

    Second photo, a little bit Nina Zilli? I think San Marino deserves to go to final this year. This is their 4th entry and out of "The Social Network Song", they always send good ones.

    Out of that, everyone say "Ralph siegel.. Euyk. It's really bad." Guys, please. This is a song contest, not name. Everyone can change and can make good songs. He have got really good ones like "Ein bisschen frieden" (winner of 1982, Germany) or C'etatit ma vie (national final, Switzerland 2012).

    I'm believe to San Marino this year and I promise, Valentina, you will be my biggest favourite. She is pretty and always smiling! Love and good luck from a Turkish fan of you!

    I will visit San Marino one day and I wish I can see you Valentina! report to the moderator
