Each act will be given a total of 12 minutes to impress the judges in this first academy round. A second academy and casting round will take place in early January.


Following these two rounds, the selected artists will go into a series of seven shows in February. These will consist of four semi-finals, a second chance round, and a final for the emerging artists. This will then go on into a Grand Final, where nine of the emerging artists will compete against nine big artists, who will be directly invited to the competition.



Looking at the list of competing artists, some Eurovision fans will notice the inclusion of Sara de Blue. The Austrian artist took part in the Austrian national final in 2016, but failed to make it into the final. She also competed in San Marino's previous national final, '1 in 360', where she placed second.



Other notable performers include Munich-based Brazilian pop singer-songwriter Gisele Abramoff, Italian comedy heavy metal band Nanowar of Steel, and Greek-American singer Panagiotis Tsakalakos (who won 'Greek Idol' in 2011),
