Watch the video of "Crisalide" sung by Valentina Monetta

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.

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.

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

You can watch the presentation of the song again via our WebTV player.

Alessandro Capicchioni, the Head of the San Marino Delegation, hosted the show, with Valentina Monetta, who discussed her thoughts about the Eurovision participation. Amongst the guests in the studio were Fabrizio Raggi (Art Director) and Roberto Moretti (TV committee member). Appearing via skype were Ralph Siegel and Mauro Balestri.

    2. Albania
    3. Austria
    4. Cyprus

    Awesome song, and great comeback by Valentina! Nice work proving us all wrong. Actually if you listen to last year's entry, her voice is technically very good - it's the song that stinks. Only question is where to hold Eurovision San Marino next year. I looked and the bigest stadium in the country has 7.000 seats. Time for renovations! report to the moderator
