The 72nd Sanremo Festival is about to come to an end. After four very successful nights in terms of viewership and more, the Festival concludes tonight with its grand final. The winner will have the right to represent Italy in May in Turin. If they don’t want to, RAI has the right to choose any of the other participants, according to its own criteria.

On the Ariston scene, Amadeus will not be alone. Each night, as we know, he has different co-hosts by his side. Sabrina Ferilli, one of the most famous actresses of Italian television and Italian cinema, will be next to him on the night of the final. Farilli has been on the stage of Teatro Ariston two more times, in 1996 and 2002.
Fabio Rovazzi and Orietta Berti will also be co-hosting on the fifth night of the 72nd Sanremo Festival, on the special Sanremo cruise outside the stadium.

The ranking so far
After the first four nights, the Mahmood & Blanco duo continues to be in the lead, being the big favorite to win the 72nd Sanremo Festival and represent Italy in Eurovision 2022 in May. In second place is Gianni Morandi, legend of Italian music yet probably this year’s Sanremo surprise so far. The top 3 is completed by Elisa, who from the first place after the second night has now dropped to the third. In any case, this trio is expected to reach the final round that will determine the winner. Nevertheless, as Sanremo’s long history has taught us, no one can rule out the possible entrance of Irama, Sangiovanni, Emma, La Rappresentante di Lista or another surprise entry into the top three after the audience votes.
There are two rounds of voting tonight. In the first round, only the television audience has the right to vote. The ranking of the audience will be taken into account and will be combined with the scores of the previous nights.
Then, positions 23 -4 will be unveiled. The top three in the ranking, without their exact placing being revealed, will advance to the second round of voting.
In the second round, all previous voting for the top 3 artists from the previous nights and rankings will be canceled. The televote (34%), the journalists (33%) and the demoscopic jury (33%) will vote among the top 3 from scratch, in order to determine the winner.
The winning song of Sanremo 2022 is automatically considered to be Italy’s participation in Eurovision 2022. However, the winner still has the right to refuse and in that case, the Sanremo 2022 organizing committee and RAI will select one of the other artists to represent the country, according to their own criteria.
