San Marino – The entry for San Marino has been released and has immediately perplexed Eurovision fans over whether it meets the rules. Valentina Monetta premiered her song ‘Facebook, Uh, Oh, Oh‘ today, which refers to the popular social network site. The EBU rules state the following: “No commercial messages of any kind shall be allowed. A breach of this rule may result in disqualification”.
The use of a multi-million dollar brand name is therefore surely against the rules? The song also has references to cyber-sex in the lyrics and strong sexual innuendos that the EBU may find unacceptable.
