San Marino has confirmed since August that “Una Voce per San Marino” will remain as the country’s selection format for Eurovision 2024.
The return of “Una Voce per San Marino” marks the fourth time in San Marino’s Eurovision history that a national selection is being used and the third time that this specific format is chosen.
A press release by the Sanmarinese national broadcaster gave us more details about the 2024 national selection.
The selection of UVPSM 2024 participants
The 2024 edition will include both “emerging” and “big” artists, as in 2022.
- The applications for the “emerging artists” category have now opened and will remain open until the 10th of January 2024. Those who are interested can register on the “Una Voce per San Marino” registration website. The “Academy and Casting” phase will start on November 10th and will finish ten days after the deadline, on January 20. The casting sessions can be held online for those not living near Italy. After this procedure, 80 artists will proceed to the semifinals.
- Regarding the “big artists” category, invitations will be sent by the Sanmarinese broadcaster.
In the Grand Final, 16 participants will compete, 8 from each category. Both “big” and “emerging” artists will be able to sing only one of their songs in the Grand Final.
There are no other specific rules regarding the submitted acts. There is a freedom of language, music style and territoriality.
The Grand Final of Una Voce per San Marino is scheduled for March 2 2024. It will be held in Teatro Nuovo di Dogana, the same venue that hosted the selection in 2022 and 2023. The winner will be decided by a qualified jury.
Despite this marathon session of a national selection, Piqued Jacks, UVPSM 2023 winners, did not manage to qualify to the Grand Final, finishing dead least with nul points.
