San Marino: The “Academy and Casting” phase is over | The semi-finalists soon to be announced!

The “Academy and Casting” phase of Una Voce per San Marino 2024, the Sanmarinese selection format for Eurovision 2024, has just come to an end.

During its two-months run, over seven-hundred artists from all over the world auditioned in order to receive a golden ticket for the microstate’s national final. Diversity was more than present, while the competing artists’ music genres varied from pop to rock and from fifty’s influenced music to rap.

We remind you that the third and final round of “Academy and Casting” commenced on January 12 and was concluded just a few hours ago at the San Marino Outlet Exprerience.

Semi-Finalists to be announced soon

An expert committee has reviewed and evaluated all the performers during the three rounds of auditions. The jury will soon come to a decision and will therefore reveal the eighty -expected- finalists who will advance to UVPSM 2024 semi-finals.

What’s next for UVPSM 2024

Following the conclusion of the “Academy and Casting” phase the semi-finals will take place. The exact number of semi-finals has not been revealed. However, the regulations of UVPSM attached to the competition’s website, without prejudice as they may change, state the following:

  • Four semi-finals will take place in order for the committee to select the artists who will directly advance to the Grand Final as well as those who will advance to the second-chance semi-final(fifth semi-final). The artists participating in the second-chance semi-final will also fight for a spot at the selection’s Grand Final. During these five semi-finals, approximately seven finalists will be decided.
  • Moreover, a sixth semi-final will be held between Sanmarinese contestants. Out of this semi-final, only one contestant will be directly advanced to the Grand Final.
Grand Final

Among 16 participants, the winner of UVPSM 2024 will be decided by a five-member jury. Eight will be the participants who will derive from the “emerging artists” category, while the remaining eight will be selected and invited by RTV as established artists.

The Grand Final of UVPSM 2024 will take place on February 24 at Teatro Nuovo di Dogana and the winner of the selection will therefore have the right to represent the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö in terms of meeting the criteria of eligibility of RTV.

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.

San Marino: Megara are contenders for Una Voce per San Marino 2024!

Although, we expected them to compete in the Spanish national selection, Benidorm Fest, where we first met them, the Spanish group Megara appears to spread their wings elsewhere in Europe.

We first met the eccentric group, Megara, at Benidorm Fest 2023, Spain’s national final for Eurovision, where they finished at the much respectable fourth place.

Megara consider their participation in Eurovision to be a milestone in their career. Hence, following their first try at Benidorm Fest 2022, where they did not qualify to the galas, they also participated in 2023 with their song “Arcadia“. Regardless not winning the ticket for Liverpool, their groundbreaking performance and their style were praised last year.

The third time is the charm, they say, so this year, they were planning their next participation, aiming to win and represent their country in Malmö. Ultimately, they failed to make it to the 16 participants of Benidorm Fest 2024. However, Megara doesn’t seem to be giving up!

Megara to Una Voce Per San Marino 2024

The Sanmarinese national television , SMRTV, published the list of the names of the artists selected through online casting in Una Voce per San Marino 2024. Based on this list, the Spanish band Megara will compete for a place in the final of the festival and will have the right to represent the small country in May in Sweden.

UVPSM 2024: the entire procedure

As far as it was known, 16 participants will compete in UVPSM 2024 Grand Final.

  • 8 of them would be “emerging artists”
  • and the remaining 8 would be established

The established artists will be selected by RTV without having to participate at any of the following stages of the competition.

Well, the updated UVPSM 2024 regulations give us more insight regarding the emerging artists selection, which will compete at the semi-finals

Semi-finals

Following the conclusion of the “Academy and Casting” phase, Una Voce per San Marino 2024 will consist of six semi-finals in total.

  • Four semi-finals will take place in order for the committee to select the artists who will directly advance to the Grand Final as well as those who will advance to the second-chance semi-final(fifth semi-final). The artists participating in the second-chance semi-final will also fight for a spot at the selection’s Grand Final. During these five semi-finals, approximately seven finalists will be decided.
  • Moreover, a sixth semi-final will be held between Sanmarinese contestants. Out of this semi-final, only one contestant will be directly advanced to the Grand Final.

Between 16 participants, the winner of UVPSM 2024 will be decided by a five-member jury. The winner of the selection will therefore have the right to represent the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö in terms of meeting the criteria of eligibility of RTV.

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.
