Off the back of their best ever placing at last year's contest San Marino have decided to send a duo (surpise!) comprising of teenagers (on trend). This will be the youngest duo to ever perform on the Eurovision stage but their age should not pose a hindrance to their performance. Both participants have excellent Eurovision pedigree having taken part in Junior Eurovision (for Malta and San Marino respectively) and the song 'Chain of Lights' is reminiscent of many of the entries performed at the junior version of the contest. The string driven ballad is an innocent and charming affair and one can be forgiven for thinking Michele might be a long lost Jonas Brother. San Marino will be hoping 'Chain of Lights' will emulate last year’s result and qualify to the final.
