San Marino – Tonight SMTV and Anita and Michele invited accredited press and fans to their Eurovision party at the Ottakranger Brewary. They were joined by two of The Peppermints who represented San Marino at JESC in 2014
There was a good turn out at the party with most people coming to see the Euroclub for the first time. When I arrived at 20:00 Anita was already mingling with the fans that came in along with her band mates Greta Doveri and Sara Dall’Olio of The Peppermints. The Peppermints are still together as a group and have an album coming out later in the year.
Michele didn’t seem to be around at the start but when the men started to pile in I probably just couldn’t see him. In stroke of genius which k for one am extremely grateful for is the mini Pizzeria they brought with them. It was damn nice Pizza, I wish Staysmann and Lazz had won NMGP.
Michele Perniola performed a set first of all where he sung songs from Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars. See below the videos I filmed of Michele performing with Queens Superband.
“Billie Jean” Michael Jackson/“Get Lucky” Daft Punk:
“Locked out of Heaven” Bruno Mars:
So that Michele could break after his 30 minute set, Anita Simoncini sang “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri and “Try” by Pink before her Peppermint buddies coming on stage to each perform a song with Sara performing “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston and Greta performing “I Am Telling You” by Jennifer Hudson
Ralph Seigel was in attendance and could be seen dancing on the side lines and watched as Anita and Michele sang their Eurovision Entry “Chain of Lights”
Finally Michele was left to his own devices again when he performed his entry from JESC 2013 “O-o-O Sole Intorno a Me”
