San Marino: General Director Of SMRTV responds to the cancellation Eurovision 2020

Another reaction to the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 cancellation announcement

Another nation speaks out after the shocking announcement of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 cancellation. This time is from the director of Sanmarinese broadcaster – San Marino TV (SMRTV), Carlo Romeo who made the following statement:

– Quite right, obviously, the decision of Eurovision 2020 to cancel the date of mid-May but as a broadcaster, and I am sure I am not the only one, it would certainly have been more logical not a total cancellation of the event but, as happened for the Europeans, a postponement to autumn 2020 or directly to 2021.

– It would be the choice of common sense that would avoid predictable aftermath between courts and media with potential class actions or individual actions by all interested parties, not least the artists themselves and Eurovision fans.

– Postponing everything to the end of September or the beginning of October, without prejudice to health security, an absolute priority for all, would also give the possibility to all State radio and television stations to open their 2020-2021 schedules with Eurovision 2020, giving a significant and strong sign of recovery through the international language of music.

Senhit herself posted a message on social media after the EBU announcement:

Senhit was going to give a second attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Freaky". Her first attempt was in the 2011 edition with the song "Stand By" but failed to qualify. An announcement from this nation is yet to be given whether Senhit will be given the opportunity to represent San Marino in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
