I’d like to thank Mary, Romeo and the whole team behind for the wonderful time we had together!. It doesn’t matter we ended up last, the experience of participating was amazing!

We made an appointment with Mary and we presented the song to her. Together we decided to go for it! 500 emails, more than 250 phone calls, 15 rehearsal days with the whole team, hours of meetings and about 20 versions of the song later.
