Senhit will sing “Adrenalina” at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
San Marinese broadcaster RTV has revealed that Senhit will represent the country with her song “Adrenalina”. The singer returned to the studio on February 23rd to make some finishing touches to the entry. The song features the world-famous singer Flo Rida, but it is still not known if he will be on stage with Senhit come May.
Senhit commented after her song was revealed that:
I always want adventure, excitement, new experiences, to live at 360 degrees and” Adrenalina” represents me best with its mix of international electro pop and refined sounds of instruments that come from Eritrea! This is why I decided to take it also on the Eurovision stage, with Luca Tommassini we are preparing a great show
Commenting on whether Flo Rida will be appearing at Eurovision:
“Flo Rida has been a part of the production and is featured in the music video, but it’s yet to be decided if he will take part on stage in Rotterdam. The rap part will either way remain.” – Team San Marino

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 nation’s 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.
