As the Eurovision New Year swings on, so does the preparation for next year’s contest. San Marino’s Eurovision 2021 representative Senhit has already entertained us with covers of ‘Cheesecake‘ and ‘Everyway That I Can‘.
For the third instalment of her #FreakyTriptoRotterdam, Senhit chose to pay homage to next year’s host The Netherlands, by covering Teach-In’s Ding-A-Dong.
The continuation of the series, sees Senhit’s continued collaboration with Luca Tommassini, which you are able to watch below. Watch carefully, as a Eurovision legend makes a cameo!
‘Inspiration from classic television’
Senhit’s longtime-collaborator Luca Tommassini drew inspiration from classic television.
It is a tribute to the first women of the 1960s, to black and white television, which still makes us dream today, the television of Mina and all those women who have contributed to creating an aesthetic that is still a point of reference
Within the video we see Senhit accompanied by four Drag Queens Dhelirya, Farida Kant, Petite Noire and La Diamond. Throughout the video we see Senhit and the other stars of the video dance along in classic outifts, as well as having their own spin into superheroes. However, instead of using powers for bad, the video shows the importance of working together.
Don’t forget to stick around, as Senhit is set to release her fourth entry to her #FreakyTriptoRotterdam on October 1.
Senhit at the Eurovision Song Contest
In 2011, Senhit represented San Marino in Düsseldorf (as Senit), with the song ‘Stand By‘. Unfortunately, she failed to qualify for the Grand Final when she placed 16th in the semi-final.
Nearly ten years on, Senhit announced her return to the Eurovision Song Contest. After an online-vote, it was announced that she will be singing ‘Freaky’. Despite the cancellation of the 2020 contest, it was announced that Senhit will represent San Marino at the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest.
