Angelina Mango’s “La noia” has gone platinum, with over 100,000 copies sold since its release. On Spotify, the song has been streamed almost 25,000,000 times. Naturally, the song has also topped charts worldwide, making its mark as one of the best songs in many countries!

Angelina follows in the footsteps of several previous Italian Eurovision artists, such as Marco Mengoni, Diodato, and Mahmood, who achieved Gold and beyond with their respective entries in previous years.

Who is Angelina Mango?

Angelina Mango is 22 years old. She is the daughter of the famous artist Mango. She became known after her participation in the popular talent show, Amici di Maria De Filippi, in 2022, where she finished in second place. She has been releasing music since 2020 and has nine singles to her name. Her music career began in a band with her brother, of which she is still a member, despite her successful solo career.

This year marks her 49th participation in the competition. In 2023, Marco Mengoni secured the fourth place for Italy with “Due Vite.”

Italy: RAI Commentators for Eurovision 2024 Announced!

“Never change a winning team.” And so, RAI has confirmed that Gabriele Corsi and Mara Maionchi will once again comment live from the Malmö Arena in Malmö during the three evenings of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, on May 7, 9, and 11.

The confirmation comes indirectly from the Rai Pubblicità website, which, while confirming the return of the main entertainment programs, also mentions the Eurovision Song Contest 2024. It reminds us that Angelina Mango will represent Italy with the song “La noia” and, indeed, it will still be up to the Roman host and the Bolognese record producer to give voice to the evenings on Rai 2 (semi-finals) and Rai 1 (final).

Corsi and Maionchi at the helm of Eurovision 2024

Gabriele Corsi, 53, is an actor, comedian, showman, and television and radio host. The voice of the morning program “Chiamate Roma Triuno Triuno” on Radio Deejay along with Furio Corsetti and Giorgio Daviddi, forming the Trio Medusa, besides narrating the last three editions of Eurovision (two with Cristiano Malgioglio, the second also with Carolina Di Domenico, and one with Maionchi), he has hosted various programs for the Warner Bros. Discovery group and Rai, including “Deal with it,” “Quelli che il calcio,” “Boss in incognito,” and the quiz “Reazione a catena.” Currently, he is engaged in “Don’t forget the lyrics” on Nove.

Mara Maionchi, born in 1941, has a long career as a record producer and talent scout before being launched, well past 70, on TV. We remember her as a judge on talent shows like X Factor and Italia’s Got Talent, as well as some sporadic appearances on Amici di Maria De Filippi and Amazon Prime Video’s LOL: Chi ride è fuori. Since last year, she has been commenting on Eurovision on Rai.

We remind you that the big winner of this year’s Sanremo Festival was Angelina Mango with the song “La Noia,” who will represent Italy at the 68th Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö in May.

Geolier: “Angelina Mango rightfully won and I voted for her!”

Geolier, who secured the second place in this year’s Sanremo Festival, faced both applause and criticism at the Teatro Ariston. He encountered disapproval from the audience when it was announced that he was leading in the overall rankings just before the final began, and also when he won on the night of the covers. Despite this, he made a comeback with new statements, speaking about the fair victory of Angelina Mango, as well as the criticism he received for his attire on the green carpet of Teatro Ariston.

For his first official appearance at Sanremo, the rapper wore a tracksuit from Naples, his favorite team. However, he was approached by a staff member of the Festival, who negatively commented on the sports tracksuit worn by the singer. Later, the same person passed him a sticker to cover the logo of Napoli, which the singer tore off.

“I speak the language of the neighborhoods, the Neapolitan of the people. Mahmood, Fred de Palma, and I were there; they whistled anyway: they weren’t against me. Angelina had to win. She did something spectacular. And I voted for her. Then I gave myself the other four votes for safety. Why did I win the cover night? Because it proves that when Naples commits itself, there is nothing for anyone: it becomes a chain! No one else has that, no city,” said Geolier.

At the start of the final evening, Amadeus revealed the general ranking up to that moment. Geolier was first, winning every night thanks to the televoting, in which he received huge percentages. However, he ultimately took the second place, as he was rated very low by both journalists and radio representatives.

For the record, Geolier was the artist who received the highest percentages in the televoting, while also receiving the fewest votes from the judging panels. However, history will write that he took second place and that Angelina Mango was the winner of the festival and the representative of Italy at Eurovision 2024.

Italy: Rai Stands with Jewish Community and Israel after Ghali’s statement!

The 2024 Sanremo Festival finale took an unexpected turn when rapper Ghali used his platform to call for a “stop to genocide.” While his intention might have been to shed light on humanitarian concerns, the aftermath saw a flurry of reactions, highlighting the complexities of political and social discourse within the realm of entertainment.

Roberto Sergio, the managing director of Rai (Radiotelevisione italiana), wasted no time in expressing solidarity with the Jewish community and the people of Israel in the wake of the controversy. In a statement issued promptly after the event, Sergio emphasized, “My solidarity with the people of Israel and the Jewish community is heartfelt and convinced.

Ghali‘s call for action, however, did not escape scrutiny. Noemi Di Segni, president of the Jewish community of Rome, lamented the missed opportunity for the festival stage to advocate for the release of hostages held by Hamas, criticizing the use of terms that she believed distorted historical realities. She remarked:

If music and the festival, due to its relevance, is the space for the freedom to express thoughts of love, pain, joy, social denunciations and political contestations, it is regrettable that this stage was not the occasion to launch, likewise, an appeal for the release of the hostages in the hands of Hamas, leaving to unilateralism the legitimacy of distortion, with the use of terms that once again offend the history of our country and all of Europe.

Israel’s ambassador to Italy, Alon Bar, condemned the exploitation of the Sanremo stage for spreading what he deemed as hatred and provocation. In response, Ghali expressed regret over the ambassador’s reaction, emphasizing the chilling effect of speaking out against war and genocide. He replied:

I don’t know what to reply, I am so sorry that the ambassador responded in this way. There were so many things to say. This policy of terror continues and people are more and more afraid to say stop war and stop genocide, people feel they lose something if they say long live the peace.”

The controversy extended into the realm of politics, with Maurizio Gasparri of Forza Italia demanding an apology from RAI leadership to Israel. Piero Fassino also weighed in, underscoring the importance of acknowledging the victims of Hamas.

In a mid-afternoon statement, Roberto Sergio reflected on Rai’s coverage of tragic events such as the Shoah and ongoing hostage situations involving Hamas, reaffirming the broadcaster’s commitment to reporting on such issues.

The Sanremo controversy underscores the complex interplay between artistic expression, political discourse, and historical sensitivities, sparking a wider conversation about the responsibilities of public platforms in navigating sensitive topics. As the festival draws to a close, it leaves behind a legacy of introspection and debate, reminding us of the power and pitfalls of words spoken on stage.

Italy: “I’m happy, it couldn’t have been better”, says Geolier!

Sanremo 2024 was concluded with Serata Finale, the past Saturday. While being Amadeus’ most successful, in terms of viewing rates, edition, there was also a lot of controversy on Geolier, who despite winning the public vote every night, did not eventually win the big prize.

Geolier was booed by the audience at Teatro Ariston following the announcement of the general classification at the start of the Grand Final and again when he won the covers’ night. Despite not winning the Festival, Geolier seemed satisfied with the outcome and supports Angelina Mango.

I liked everything. Yesterday it was me and Angelina on stage, two guys born after 2000. I’m happy, it couldn’t have been better. No bitterness about the frustration.

Geolier led the General Classification, won the public voting every night, and placed first in the final round of public voting by a large margin over second place, he did not win. The radio and media committees placed him very low on the scoreboard, ensuring Angelina’s victory.

Geolier’s participation was enough to reignite the rivalry between the North and the South, being a proud representative of Naples, rapping in Neapolitan dialect. The south of Italy backed him as much as possible, and his low placement on juries was viewed negatively by Neapolitans as discrimination against South Italians.

However, the winner takes it all and Angelina Mango was crowned the winner of Festival di Sanremo 2024 with her song “La Noia” and will therefore represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, held in Malmö, Sweden.

RAI: Considerations for Selecting Eurovision Representative from Sanremo via International Committee!

The lights went out at the Teatro Ariston for the triumphant 74th edition of the Sanremo Festival, with 1.5 million more viewers tuning in compared to last year to watch the grand final on RAI1. Shortly before, the RAI press conference, hosted by Amadeus and three past winners, concluded with the confirmation from Angelina Mango that she would represent Italy at Eurovision 2024. However, there was another significant development regarding Sanremo’s role in selecting Italy’s Eurovision representative.

Separation of Sanremo Winner and Eurovision Representation from 2025?

During the press conference, Amadeus was asked if, during his years as host and artistic director of the festival, he ever considered using an international committee to select the most suitable artist and song to represent Italy at Eurovision.

While Amadeus answered negatively, the response from RAI officials was different, indicating that it is something they will consider for the next year.

The above response was obviously prompted by this year’s events, particularly the near-victory of Geolier with a song widely acknowledged as having no chance at Eurovision, while there were several songs at Sanremo that would have performed much better. Furthermore, Sanremo serves incidentally as Italy’s national final, and the voting criteria of both the audience, journalists, and radio representatives do not necessarily align with Eurovision representation.

So, the question is reasonable, and RAI‘s answer is also sensible, perhaps believing that disconnecting the Sanremo winner from Eurovision representation and selecting the artist who will represent Italy in the competition may yield even better results, especially in a year like this one.

RAI‘s Mammoth Revenues and Viewership

The Sanremo final ended with massive television ratings for RAI, surpassing last year’s by a significant margin. Specifically, an average of 74.1% of viewers, totaling 14,301,000, tuned in, compared to 66% and 12,256,000 viewers last year.

The moment with the highest viewership was during Amadeus‘s humorous sketch with Fiorello, with over 18,000,000 viewers watching RAI1, and the peak share reached 85.26% during the announcement of the top 5 results.

RAI‘s revenue from advertising during the five days of the festival was €60,182,000, far exceeding the expenses incurred by the Italian public broadcaster for Sanremo, proving that creating something so remarkable yields commensurate returns.

Amadeus‘s Future at Sanremo and His Possible Successor

Amadeus revealed that in two weeks, he will meet with RAI for a general assessment of Sanremo 2024. He did not clarify whether there would be any discussion about extending their collaboration into 2025. However, the name of a possible successor to Amadeus as host and artistic director of the festival has already been circulating in the press.

That person is the former politician and long-time popular Italian television host, Gerry Scotti. A few days earlier, Amadeus and Gerry Scotti had dinner, discussing the Sanremo Festival. The only issue for him to take on this significant role is that he belongs to the dynamics of private television and would need to resolve any outstanding issues there.

Of course, all of the above will make sense if Amadeus steps down and does not remain in his position in 2025. In that case, Amadeus will be the longest-serving host and artistic director of Sanremo.

Stay tuned for all the developments!

Italy: Geolier Speaks Out After Controversial Booing!

Yesterday’s finale at the Ariston Theater took an unexpected turn during the cover night, ending with boos and protests from the audience who did not appreciate the winner. Rapper Geolier emerged victorious thanks to his performance alongside Guè, Luchè, and Gigi D’Alessio. However, instead of applause, the singer was met with a barrage of disapproving boos during the award ceremony.

Interviewed by Corriere della Sera, Geolier couldn’t hide his disappointment:

“I did everything to bring these three giants to the stage. Then, to win and go on stage with people booing, getting up, and leaving… It was one of the worst performances. Actually, the worst…”.

The evening, which was eagerly anticipated, ended on a sour note as the audience’s reaction marred what should have been a celebratory moment. Despite Geolier‘s efforts and the collaboration with esteemed artists, the response from the audience was unexpected and deeply disappointing.

The controversy surrounding the outcome of the cover night at Sanremo 2024 raises questions about the audience’s role in shaping the festival’s atmosphere and the impact of their reactions on the performers. Geolier’s candid remarks reflect the frustration of an artist who poured his heart into his performance only to be met with disdain from the crowd.

As Sanremo 2024 continues tonight, the incident serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of live performances and the emotional rollercoaster that artists often experience on stage.

How to Watch Sanremo 2024

You can watch the Sanremo 2024 Festival live on Rai1 and on the RaiPlay website at 20:45 Central European Time. If you are a fan of Italian music, stay tuned to EurovisionFun for the most comprehensive coverage of the 74th Sanremo Festival.

Sanremo 2024 – Serata Finale

The thirty participants will perform for the last time on Teatro Ariston stage. At the end of the competition piece, the overall ranking is to be announced, where the Top 5 will be announced and will “duel” for the Festival winner’s trophy after a second round of voting exclusively for the top five of the overall ranking.

Post Sanremo 2024 – Eurovision Song Contest

  • Any of the 30 contestants (and their respective record labels) interested in participating in Eurovision 2024 must fill out a specific form for this purpose.
  • The winner of Sanremo 2024 is automatically considered Italy’s representative in Eurovision 2024. In case the winner declines to go to Eurovision, the organizational committee of Sanremo will then choose the artist to represent Italy in Malmo according to its criteria from those contestants who have filled out the expression of interest form for Eurovision.
