San Marino: Una Voce per San Marino 2023 Finalists revealed



The finalists of Una Voce per San Marino have been decided over the course of the week, with the last of the semi-finals broadcast this morning Australia time on the Sanmarinese Eurovision broadcaster San Marino RTV.


106 semi-finalists were whittled down to 22 finalists. The five semi-finals were recorded from February 18 to 20, before they were broadcast one by one from February 20 to 24. All these shows were hosted by Ilenia de Sena.

The first four semi-finals, broadcast from February 20 to 23, saw the artists perform in alphabetical order. From each of these semi-finals, four acts directly qualified to the final, whilst another four acts moved onto the second chance semi-final.


From the second chance semi-final, a further four acts qualified for the final which will be broadcast on February 25. Therefore a total of 22 acts will therefore compete in the show on Saturday evening.
