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

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 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.
