San Marino has been a focus for Eurovision Fans around the world these days as it has rumoured that Lys Assia, the first ever winner of Eurovision, will probably take part in Eurovision representing San Marino. However, days before Lys denied her participation. The defender of the Sanmarinese flag in Malmo therefore remains unknown.
However, another rumour has come to our knowledge that, according the website http://ilkar.blogspot.fi/2013/01/ex-cookies-stephy-and-theresa-for-san.html, two singers based in Hong Kong may represent San Marino to join the contest. It may be a wild rumour that is not worth considering for the most of our readers as the article stated that apparently the two girls aren’t in such good terms after the band’s (Cookies’) breakup. However, we find that in SMRTV’s Eurovision-theme facebook page, a poll is underway for us to choose a language to represent San Marino, and we see MANDARIN CHINESE among the various options. Does it imply anything anyway?
Certainly, we are glad to see the appearance of the first ever Chinese language entry in the Eurovision stage. According to wikipedia, Chinese language has never been performed in Eurovision. These years we saw the visit of Mika Newton, and recently, Loreen, to China, which boosted significantly the interest to get to know Eurovision Song Contest among Chinese music fans. We will wait to see if San Marino will be the first country to introduce Chinese language entry in Eurovision.
Of course, if you want to hear a Chinese language entry in Sweden in the month of May, please vote for “Mandarin Chinese” here in https://www.facebook.com/EurovisionSMtvSanMarino
