Italy: Diodato confirmed as interval act in the First Semi-Final!

Diodato will finally get to perform on the Eurovision Song Contest stage as the singer has been confirmed as a special interval act in the First Semi-Final, two years after he was picked as the Italian participant for the cancelled 65th edition.

Diodato won the 70th Sanremo Festival back in 2020 with the song Fai Rumore – which topped the Italian charts and looked set to captivate an international audience at the Contest scheduled for Rotterdam.

However, as we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic changed everybody’s plans and prevented the artist from Aosta representing his home country, Italy, in the Netherlands.

However, in Italy, Fai Rumore became one of the anthems of lock-down, and in May of that year, during the Eurovision Song Contest celebration Europe Shine a Light, Diodato performed his entry at an empty Arena di Verona.

The following year, Diodato did not enter Sanremo, which was eventually won by future Eurovision champions Måneskin.

In Turin, the singer’s interval performance is hoped to symbolise a return towards normal life after two years of restrictions and social distancing, and he will finally have the chance to perform on the Eurovision stage and interact with the audience, having been denied this special opportunity following the extraordinary events of 2020.
