Next Big 5 act to take the stage for his first rehearsal is Italy with Marco Mengoni, performing his song “Due Vite”!
Who is Marco Mengoni?
Marco Mengoni is an Italian singer-songwriter who rose to fame in 2009, after winning the third season of the Italian X Factor. Since then, Mengoni has managed to make a name for himself in Italy as well as abroad. At the time of writing, he’s released 7 studio albums that between them have gone 69-times platinum, has sold over 2.8 million records in Italy, has peaked the Italian albums chart seven consecutive times and entered the Top 10 Italian Singles Chart fifteen times. Marco has also won the Sanremo Festival twice, in 2013 and this year, becoming one of the few italian artists to have achieved two wins in the festival.
Marco is also not new to Eurovision, as he has previously taken part in the 2013 contest in Malmö after his first Sanremo win, managing to finish 7th with his entry L’essenziale!
Marco is in leather trousers and a silver sparkly vest (for today – the Italian delegation has previously announced that he will be wearing a different outfit in each of his performances). He is backed by swirling clouds and a moon on the LED wall, as well as two male dancers and a staircase prop.
