We have previously reported that Unser Lied für Israel participant Aly Ryan has submitted songs to Switzerland for Eurovision 2020. However, it seems that she could have a chance of representing another country, San Marino. Aly took to social media to confirmed she has sent songs to SMRTV for consideration.
Could San Marino be a more suitable option?
The micro-state is currently the smallest country actively taking part in the contest. Within its short history in the competition, San Marino has had singers from the following countries represent them:
- San Marino (Valentina Monetta, Anita Simoncini, 2x members of Miodio)
- Italy (3x members of Miodio, Senit, Michele Perniola)
- Turkey (Serhat)
- Malta (Jessica Muscat)
- Germany (Jenifer Brening)
- USA (Jimmie Wilson)
Due to the small music scene in San Marino, the micro-state has been represented by singers from other countries. With San Marino looking to replicate its success in Tel Aviv, could Aly Ryan be their key to continue its qualifying streak?
More countries on the horizon?
In an Instagram story, Aly has asked her fans to DM her of participating countries who will be willing to take applications from non-citizens. Besides Switzerland and San Marino, will Aly Ryan submit entries to other countries?
Aly Ryan’s Eurovision journey
Earlier this year, Aly Ryan participated in Germany’s national final ‘Unser Lied für Israel’ with her song ‘Wear Your Love‘. Despite being the fan-favorite to represent Germany in Tel Aviv this year, Aly managed to place fourth overall in the competition.
Aly Ryan might not have won ‘Unser Lied für Israel’, but ‘Wear Your Love’ has been chosen by OGAE Germany as their entry for the 2019 OGAE Second Chance Contest. Wear Your Love finished fifth, with 185 points.
