Piqued Jacks are the winners of Una Voce Per San Marino 2023
The grand final of 'Una Voce Per San Marino' has found its winner - Piqued Jacks will represent San Marino at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest, with the song 'Like An Animal'.

After a week of semi finals and a second-chance round, the 2023 edition of Una Voce Per San Marino came to its anticipated result on Saturday night at the Teatro Nuovo in Dogana.

The grand final saw 22 songs compete to become San Marino's entry to the 67th Eurovision Song Contest. After an evening of live performances, it was the song Like An Animal that was voted as the winner, performed by the Italian band Piqued Jacks. 

Like An Animal will serve as San Marino's 14th participation at the Eurovision Song Contest, when Piqued Jacks take it to Liverpool in May.

San Marino at the Eurovision Song Contest

San Marino is one of the smallest countries in the world, surrounded by Italy, and is said to be the world's oldest surviving republic.

The 2008 Contest in Belgrade would stage San Marino’s debut entry; alt-rock group Miodio, composed of Sammarinese and Italian band members. Their song, Complice, may have finished last in its Semi-Final but not before picking up two points from fellow aspirational minnows Andorra.

Since their debut, the 'Most Serene Republic' has qualified for the Grand Final on three occasions: Valentina Monetta (in 2014 with the Ralph Siegel produced track Maybe), Serhat (in 2019 with Say Na Na Na) and Senhit (in 2021 with the track Adrenalina).
