ESC 2016: SAN MARINO HAS APPLIED AND HINTS ABOUT A COMEBACK BY MONACO, ANDORRA.....

Today's news is that San Marino (and also Albania) has indeed applied for the Eurovision song contest 2016 in Stockholm. In San Marino's case the Head of delegation Alessandro Capicchioni told in an interview with Eurofestival News that they have applied but nothing is confirmed yet. They are looking into various options what comes to sponsors and producer and the offers they are getting. As always in their case the choice is purely internal. Time will tell if there will be a change for their seventh participation after four years with Ralph Siegel productions.... All will be settled and decided over the next few weeks (the EBU deadline to confirm seems to be on October 10, 2015) but their participation should be rather secure now.
But the most interesting thing comes in the end of the interview when he says San Marino is feeling a bit lonely as the only microstate participant and he'd love to see Andorra and Monaco back in game. And he says he has a feeling that one of them maybe, maybe.....  
Hasn't Andorra already said no while Monaco has stayed quiet. Could it be? Wouldn't that be great? Monaco has won once and has taken part from 1959 to 1979, and made a comeback in 2004 for three editions before disppearing again after failing to qualify to the final. Maybe San Marino's qualification in 2014 has given them some new hope? Andorra took part from 2004 to 2009, also failing to make the final each year.
