Back in 2008 San Marino joined the world of Eurovision when the band Miodia represented them with the song Complice. The failed to reach the final, and in the following two years, the country didn't take part.
Since 2011, San Marino has been a regular participant, but they have struggled a lot. They have four times been represented by Valentina Monetta, and despite her love for the contest and its fans, she only managed to reach the final once, in 2014 with the song Maybe.
In the years that followed the country never again managed to qualify for the final, and thus they are one of the least successful Eurovision countries.
