San Marino were one of the first countries to confirm their participation in this year’s contest following their best result at the 2019 contest. Serhat represented the country with “Say Na Na Na”, placing 20th in the Grand Final, and finishing 10th with the public televote.
San Marino debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 alongside Azerbaijan. On their debut they were represented by Miodio and the song “Complice”, and finished last in their semi final with just 5 points. San Marino withdrew from the contest before returning again in 2011. Since then the country has participated annually and in 2014 qualified for their first final. The nations worst result came in 2017 when Valentina Monetta represented San Marino for the fourth time alongside Jimmie Wilson with “Spirit of the Night.” The pair finished last in their semi-final with just 1 point.
