A few days ago, an interview that was discussed was given by Francesco Gabbani on fanpage, one of the largest artistic portals in the country. The Italian superstar has revealed that his new song could do well at the Sanremo Festival, and has also postponed its release for the beginning of next year after the 70th Sanremo Festival, which he said would not exclude his participation!
Who is Francesco Gabbani?
Surely most of you still remember Francesco Gabbani from his win at Sanremo three years ago and his subsequent participation in Eurovision 2017 in Kiev with “Occidentali’s Karma”. There, while he was one of the biggest betting favorites to have ever gone through the history of the contest, with odds ranging from 1 to 1.3, he was eventually limited to sixth place in the standings.
Nevertheless, he remains one of the most popular Italian singers, with countless sold out appearances, platinum records and millions of streams on Spotify and views on YouTube. He also holds the record with the most millions of views on YouTube for participating in the Eurovision Song Contest.More than 228 million at the time of writing this article.
With Duemeladiciannove at Sanremo 2020?
His new song is called “Duemeladiciannove” and he dedicates it to his fans, who have been supporting him for so many years. It has social content like “Occidentai’s Karma” and Gabbani’s original intention was to release it in the days ahead.
But eventually, and apparently because of his desire to re-attend the Sanremo Festival, he moved his release date for the first months of 2020. He also admits that he would be very positive about such a possibility and that “Duemeladiciannove” could have a very good run at the Festival.
Of course, in order to see Francesco Gabbani among the Sanremo 2020 contestants, Amadeus has to choose him. This, of course, is not unlikely, since artists such as Francesco Gabbani will raise the interest of the public and the media. The 20 artists of the Campioni category will be announced in a special show by Amadeus on January 6th, so we’ll know if Francesco Gabbani is among them.
We remind you that the 70th Sanremo Festival will take place from 4 to 8 February 2020 at the Teatro Ariston in Sanremo. The winner of the Festival will be given the opportunity to represent Italy at Eurovision 2020 next May in Rotterdam.
