Serhat to fly the flag for San Marino in Tel Aviv

After weeks of speculation and rumours, SMTV has made the official announcement on San Marino’s representative for Eurovision 2019. Serhat will wave the country’s flag in Tel Aviv.

This will be the second time Serhat will represent San Marino at Eurovision as was chosen to represent the microstate in 2016 with the song ‘I didn’t know’. However, he didn’t manage to reach the Grand Final finishing 12th in the semifinal.

Serhat was working on his new album, when he got the invitation from San Marino RTV for this year’s contest: “San Marino is always in my heart, our friendship lasts forever and ESC 2016 was probably one of the best memories of my career. Despite my tight schedule, it didn’t take me long to decide. I am very proud to represent San Marino for the second time”.

San Marino RTV underlines: “When we started to plan the next edition of ESC, we realized that this participation will be our 10th entry. It is a “round” number, an important goal for us, and we thought that we should celebrate our anniversary in Israel, with someone special. We were always in touch with Serhat during the last two years and now after 2016, we are fully empowered and believe that Serhat being full of interesting ideas, is the right choice in the right moment”.

Now, he joins the other five confirmed finalists for Eurovision 2019:

  • Srbuk – Armenia
  • Tamta – Cyprus
  • Jonida Maliqi – Albania
  • Eliot – Belgium
  • Miki – Spain
