San Marino failed third year in a row to qualify for the Eurovision song contest final. Between 2008-2017 they have participated eight times and only once made it to the final. Valentina Monetta sung Maybe to the 24th place in final with 14 points.
Carlo Romeo , the Director General of San Marino TV commented right after the show according ESC United the following:
“We are very happy for and proud of Valentina and Jimmie, but I think we are too small for this event. I am not sure that next year we will consider participating. It is very difficult now to think of taking part again. There is no place for micro-states in the Eurovision Song Contest.”
This may have also something to do with the unsolved voting problem where San Marino's televote is generated by EBU in a way only they know....
Despite that Valentina and Jimmie left the Green room after results seemingly happy singing and dancing in the spirit of the night.
