Earlier this week, i had expectations from San Marino, after i found one song from Valentina in youtube, titled "Una Giornata Bellissima", which i consider to be fairly good song.

But now and unfortunately i have to say i have brand new last place...the title is super idiotic, and no wonder it is composed by non other than Mr. Ralph Siegel...the guy is so oldfashioned (though i liked Montenegro 2009), and we can see this again with this song. after all, that brings me some years back to times i wanted so send my own composition to countries who "opened gates" as San Marino (or Andorra), at least i know i couldn't go so oldfashioned  :D

Really, my heart goes to this lovely singer...i really liked the song i heard from her before, but thanks to Mr. Siegel it looks like her career is terminated :( what can i add more...i hate San Marino 2012 and i don't have any account there, what can i do, i don't look to be so Sweden 2011 :D

LOL at 1st i was wrote it here as "Facebook, Uh, Oh, Oh" but as both the singer youtube channel and in diggiloo it was written simply as 'facebook' i changed it, but now i see several sources corrected it...still i will never get the point to get stucked to facebook in the contest :doh:

Even if I was the only person in the world who doesn't have a facebook account, I wouldn't join it - and now I am even more convinced about it.  :D

What a silly song!  :doh:

From Eurovision.TV:

Quote
"The lyrics and/or performance of the songs shall not bring the Shows, the ESC as such or the EBU into disrepute. No lyrics, speeches, gestures of a political or similar nature shall be permitted during the ESC. No swearing or other unacceptable language shall be allowed in the lyrics or in the performances of the songs. No commercial messages of any kind shall be allowed. A breach of this rule may result in disqualification." says the point 1.2.2.g of the Rules of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest.

The Reference Group concluded that due to the title and repetitive presence of the trademark 'Facebook', the song contains a commercial message and is therefore not eligible to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest.

In support of SMRTV's participation, it was decided to give the broadcaster the opportunity to either deliver a new version of the lyrics that does not include a reference to Facebook, or to deliver a new song. The deadline set for the delivery of new lyrics and/or song was set to Friday, 23rd of March at 12:00 CET.

Really great relief not to hear that word again  :D

As the sands of time are running low, i really hope "Una Giornata Bellissima" will be picked instead of this disgrace. i doubt whether it was commercially released before, and in that way, regardless of San Marino result, Valentina will be remembered as very decent Eurovision artist. after all it is San Marino being represented in Eurovision as a participating country, not Mr. Ralph Siegel...
