Time-Warp Tuesday: Stellar San Marino
Contest: 53rd – Belgrade,Serbia
Representing: San Marino
Result: Last in semi final
And the gong for “Least Deserved Placing in a Eurovision Song Contest, Like, Anywhere, EVER!” goes to…San Marino, and their debut entry back in Belgrade. Well, maybe it would if this was an awards ceremony, one where I had all the power choosing who got what statuette. But I defy anybody out there to argue that Miodio and their haunting rock-ballad/dinky piano riff/slightly-too-old-to-be-a-believable love-interest-for-the-lead-singer-who-looks-about-twelve combo deserved as little as 5 points AND the utter humiliation of losing to both Belgium and Estonia (the generally regarded doozies of 2008). I have one word to describe San Marino in Eurovision – UNDERRATED. If you’re a Complice fan, perhaps you could show that you rate it by pressing play on this three minutes once or twice!

This is funny, I was planning to write about this song today in my blog xD Well, I never liked this song (sorry xD) I aways thought it was depressing and dark, but I agree with you that they didn’t deserve to end lower than Estonia…And this song is actually better that this year’s Sammarinese entry which was a complete bore 😛
