Her brilliant career began in 1993 with the Sanremo Festival, where she won the Young Artists category, with the subsequent worldwide success of La Solitudine. She quickly crossed the borders of Italy. All these years she has toured almost all over the world, while she was a judge in the Italian, Spanish and Mexican The Voice.

Alessandro Catellan is 43 years old. She is considered one of the most successful Italian TV presenters, having in his assets project such as X Factor, but also music shows on MTV.

Finally, M I K A, although of British / Lebanese descent, was a judge on both the French The Voice and the Italian X Factor. The Italians loved him a lot and they feel he is their own artist. Despite some ambiguous statements about the competition in the past, his participation in the trio of presenters will give an international air.
