Italy: Amadeus won’t host Sanremo 2025| These are the candidates for hosting the Festival!

We know for quite a while now, that Sanremo 2024, was going to be the last festival that the successful Amadeus would host. Now, after Angelina Mango’s win, the lights in Teatro Ariston went down, and RAI is searching for the new presenter of the Italian music show.

In their first joint interview in a popular Italian magazine, the italian presenter and his wife Giovanna Civitillo, talked about the withdrawal of Amadeus from the festival:

“After five years between Milan and Rome I want to devote myself to my wife and children, they fill up my life and they complete me. Off stage I’m like the sad clown, they’re my glass half full.”

H Giovanna Civitillo added that he is a capable, generous and honest man.

As of Festival di Sanremo 2025, there are already a few names that RAI is targeting. After both Carlo Conti (host and artistic director of the festival from 2015 until 2017) and Paolo Bonolis, (host of the 2005 festival) declined that offer, the public broadcaster has some other names in mind. These are Alessandro Cattelan, host of Eurovision 2022, Antonella Clerici (participant in Sanremo 2005, 2010) but also Alessia Marcuzzi.

The Festival di Sanremo 2024 was completed a few days ago, with Angelina Mango, being the first woman winning the festival after ten years. In Eurovision, Italy will take part directly in the Grand Final, as part of the BIG 5 group, in May 11:

Italy: Angelina Mango is the winner of the Festival di Sanremo 2024 | All that happened during the Last Night!

Welcome back Eurovision fans to the world of Sanremo for the fifth and final time for this year. The 74th Festival di Sanremo, or the Italian Song Festival, one of the most beloved festivals of the whole world has reached the Fifth or La Quinta Serata, the last Night, the one that is going to define the winner of this year’s Festival and the possible entrant for Italy in Eurovision Song Contest 2024, since the winners will earn the well known “right of first refusal”, meaning the right to represent Italy only if they wish to do so.

Live from the coastal town of Sanremo, in Liguria, Teatro Ariston opened for one more and last time its gates and welcomed everyone around the world to celebrate, to feel and to dance to the Italian music. Tonight all of the thirty (30) entrants performed once more their songs, just like they did during the First Night, and were judged only by the public during the Night’s first round of voting at least, since during the second and final voting round a sum of televoting and the two juries was held and determined the winner. Thus, brace yourselves for La Serata Finale of this year’s Sanremo, keep reading and find out who was the ultimate winner of the Festival!

Apart from the live, and lucky, audience inside the Teatro Ariston, viewers of all around the world were able to watch for once more the Festival live on RAI Uno and RAIPlay or to listen to the live coverage from RAI Radio 2. Before the official starting of the Festival, Gazelle, Mr. Rain and Sangiovanni shared some of their thoughts for being part of a such a huge Festival.

As an opening ceremony the Italian Army Music Band inside the Teatro performed the Italian National Anthem.

 

In the beginning of the Night, the general ranking of all the thirty (30) contestants was revealed, according on how the results had been formed that far since the beginning of the Festival.

The presenters

For his fifth and final consecutive year, the famous Italian television and radio presenter, Amadeus, was the main host and the artistic director of the Festival, while on his side, as a co-host, for this final evening, was the famous Italian comedian, singer, radio and television presenter Rosario Fiorello, known just as Fiorello, who accompanied him during all the previous Nights but covering everything from outside the theatre, but now it was time for the audience to see Fiorello on stage performing a medley to Michael Jackson.

The Fifth Night’s format

The Fifth Night is also the final one, at the end of which everyone will know the one and only winner. The Night was consisted of two voting rounds. During the first one, which began right before the first candidate performance, all of the thirty (30) entrants performed for the last time their official entries, while during the second voting round, the top five from the first round had to reperforme their songs, so the winner could be determined among them. During the first voting round only the public determined the result, by holding the absolute 100% of the final result. That specific result was of course added up to the results obtained that far, from all the previous Nights. Ultimately, towards the end of the Night a second and final voting round among the public, the jury of the press and the jury of the radio was held.

The Fifth Night’s performances

All of the thirty (30) entrants had to perform for one final time their songs. The lines opened for the public to vote right before the first performance. Remember that the first voting round’s ranking was determined only by the public. Thus according also to the official running order that was released a few hours ago, the Fifth Night’s performances, along with their voting number, were the following:

After all the thirty (30) entries had been performed, the lines were closed for the public, for that first voting round of the Night.

Special Guests

Of course La Serata Finale of Sanremo 2024 had also an amazing guest list. The Italian actor, model and television personality Luca Argentero made a lovely appearance along with the Italian actor Claudio Gioè. The Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle gave also an incredible ballet performance on stage, accompanied by his dancers. The Italian rapper Tananai was also present and performed live at the square of Sanremo, along with rapper Tedua, who had also performed during the First Night, was aboard on Costa Smeralda on the open sea singing “Red Lights“. However, the most undoubtedly exquisit guest was by far Gigliola Cinquetti, who was the very first Italian winner in Eurovision Song Contest back in 1964, with her beloved song “Non ho l’età”, which was actually performed 60 years later.

The first round’s results

As it is already mentioned, the Fifth Night’s voting procedure is consisted of two parts. Thus, during the first round, only the public was able to vote, hence the absolute 100% of the result was determined by televoting. This specific result was added to all the previous televoting results of the Nights, meaning the 50% of the Second Night, the 50% of the Third Night and the Fourth’s 34%. So , the top thirty general ranking was the following:

  1. Irama – “Tu no”
  2. Ghali – “Casa mia”
  3. Angelina Mango – “La noia”
  4. Geolier – “I’p me, tu p’te”
  5. Annalisa – “Sinceramente”
  6. Mahmood – “Tuta gold”
  7. Loredana Bertè – “Pazza”
  8. Il Volo – “Capolavoro”
  9. Alessandra Amoroso – “Fino a qui”
  10. Alfa – “Vai!”
  11. Gazelle – “Tutto qui”
  12. Il Tre – “Fragili”
  13. Diodato – “Ti muovi”
  14. Emma – “Apnea”
  15. Fiorella Mannoia – “Mariposa”
  16. The Kolors “Un ragazzo una ragazza”
  17. Mr. Rain – “Due altalene”
  18. Santi Francesi – “L’amore in bocca”
  19. Negramaro – “Ricominciamo tutto”
  20. Dargen D’Amico – “Onda alta”
  21. Ricchi e Poveri – “Ma non tutta ma vita”
  22. BigMama – “La rabbia non ti basta”
  23. Rose Villain – “Click Boom!”
  24. Clara – “Diamanti grezzi”
  25. Francesco Renga and Nek – “Pazzo di te”
  26. Maninni – “Spettacolare”
  27. La Sad – “Autodistruttivo”
  28. Bnkr44 – “Governo punk”
  29. Sangiovanni – “Finiscimi”
  30. Fred de Palma – “Il cielo non ci vuole”

The second round’s (Super Final) results and the Festival’s winner

Only the top five performaces qualified for the second round or the Super Final. The second voting round began among only those top five artists from the first round; during their recap of their songs the lines opened once more, so the public could vote one last time. During that time, the final result, thus the Festival’s winner as well, was determined by a voting split system among the public again, holding the 34%, the jury of the press TV and web, holding the 33% and the jury of the radio holding the rest 33%. Thus, the Festival’s very final top five was the following:

  1. Angelina Mango – “La noia”
  2. Geolier – “I p’me, tu p’te”
  3. Annalisa – “Sinceramente”
  4. Ghali – “Casa mia”
  5. Irama – “Tu no”

Of course this means that the official winner of the Festival di Sanremo 2024 and Marco Mengoni’s successor is Angelina Mango with her song “La noia”.

The only thing that remains to see is whether will accept to represent Italy in Eurovision Song Contest 2024, in Malmö or not and if he/she does so, with which song of his/hers.

The winner will then be determined by triple voting: 34% televoting, 33% press, TV and web jury and 33% radio jury.

Italy: The results of the Fourth Night of the Festival di Sanremo 2024! | Listen to the covers performances!

Welcome back Eurovision and Sanremo fans! The 74th Festival di Sanremo, also known as the Italian Song Festival 2024, is back for a fourth night in a row and celebrates the magic of the Italian music along with all the viewers all around the world. Taking place for once more at the Teatro Ariston, the Festival di Sanremo 2024 has successfully reached its Fourth Night or La Quarta Serata, probably the most special and the most distinct and different one of them all! Note here and remember that the winners of the Festival will gain the right to represent Italy in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, the so called “right of the first refusal”, meaning that they can represent Italy only if they wish to do so. Tonight it was the time for the Fourth Night, during which all of the thirty (30) entrants came together for once more on stage, since the First Night, with one slight difference; they did not perform their own songs, but covers of other Italian or international songs of the past duetting with one or more guest performers instead!

Live on RAI and RAIPlay for once more, before the official starting of the Night, Diodato and Rose Villain shared some of their happy thoughts on camera for being part of the Festival.

The presenters

Of course for once more the famous television and radio presenter Amadeus was the host and the artistic director of the show, for his fifth and last consecutive year. During each Night Amadeus is not all alone on stage for the Festival, but he is accompanied by a famous artist of the Italian entertainment scene. Thus for La Quarta Serata, Amadeus’ co-host was the Italian television presenter, actress and singer Lorella Cuccarini, who had also served as a co-host during last year’s Fourth Night as well. She performed right outside of the Teatro Ariston before her glamorous entrance on stage.

The Fourth Night’s format

During La Quarta Serata all of the thirty (30) participants reappeared on stage all together, just like they did during the First Night. However, in contrast to the First, Second and Third Night, during the Fourth Night the participants did not perform their own entries, but covers of other songs from the past. At the end of the Night, the voting procedure was also different from the rest of the Nights, since the performances were judged through a split system among the public, that had also voted on the Second and Third Night, the Jury of the radio, that had also voted during the Second and the Third Night and the Jury of the press, that voted only during the First Night. As it is understood, although the candidates did not perform their original songs, they were judged normally and the Night’s final results were added to the already obtained ones of each previous Night, taking us one step closer to the final winner of the Festival.

The Fourth Night’s performances

During the Fourth Night, all of the thirty (30) artists performed an Italian or international song from the past duetting with some guest performers, different ones each time. Those guest permormers had either already participated at the Festival at the previous years, or they were totally newcomers coming from abroad to the Festival. The lines opened for the public to vote right before the first performance and remained open during all the performances. According also to the running order that went public a few hours ago, the performances of the Fourth Night were the following:

(You can watch all the Night’s performances by clicking on the songs’ titles)

01) Sangiovanni along with the Spanish singer Aitana, performed the former’s song “Farfalle/Mariposas“.

During all the covers’ performances, the public voted regularly for their favourite artist and after a quick recap the lines were closed.

  • The beloved duo Jalisse also performed the unforgettable “Fiumi di Parole”, Italy’s last entry of the 20th century.

Special guests

The Fourth Night’s guest list seemed to be diverse enough since several Italian figures from different sections of entertainment were present. Among them, was Albert II, Prince of Monaco who watched the whole show from the opera box of the theatre. Also the Italian singer Arisa was present who performed her song “La notte“. Moreover, the famous duo Jalisse made a surprising appearance celebrating their 27 years since their participation in Eurovision 1997 with “Fiumi di parole”. The Italian actresses Elena Sofia Ricci and Margherita Buy were also present, while the Italian DJ and singer Gigi D’Agostino performed aboard on Costa Smeralda. The Italian MotoGP 2022 and 2023 World Riders’ Champion Francesco Bagnaia made a surprisng appearance.

The results

Pay attention to the fact that La Quarta Serata’s results were different from those of the previous Nights. The difference is that the performances were judged by a split system among the televoting, that held the 34% of the Night’s final result, the Jury of the radio, that held the 33% of the Night’s final result and the Jury of the press, that held the rest 33% of the Night’s final result. Of course the results from all the previous Nights were added up to the Fourth Night’s results, leading closer and closer to the Festival’s winner and possible Italy’s entrant for Eurovision 2024.Hence, the top five results of  the Quarta Serata were the following:

  1. Geolier
  2. Angelina Mango
  3. Annalisa
  4. Ghali
  5. Alfa

At the very end of the Night, Geolier, the winner of the Fourth Night, reperformed along with Guè, Luchè and Gigi D’Alessio their medley called “Strade”.

Italy: The results of the Third Night of the Festival di Sanremo 2024!

Hello Eurovision fans! During this week of February, the most beloved show of Italy and one of the most favourite ones of Europe and of the rest of the world is taking place, lasting for five consecutive Nights long. It is the 74th Festival di Sanremo, or the Italian Song Festival 2024, of course, which after the completion of the first two magnificent Nights, celebrated tonight its Third Night, or La Treza Serata, during which all the viewers across the world had the opportunity to listen to the rest of the fifteen (15) candidate entries of this year’s Festival. Remember that the winners of Sanremo 2024 will earn automatically the so called “right of first refusal”, meaning the right to represent Italy to the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2024, only if they wish to do so. Taking place of course at the Teatro Ariston in Sanremo, Liguria, the Third Night of the Festival di Sanremo 2024 is here!

Live on RAI Uno and on RAI Play, the Teatron Ariston opened for once more its gates and welcomed the whole world to join the Festival and enjoy the Night. A few moments before the official opening of the Third Night, viewers were lucky enough to watch a few interviews from this year Festival’s participants, specifically from Loredana Bertè and Dargen D’Amico.

The presenters

For his fifth and final year, the famous Italian television and radio presenter Amadeus was the main host and artistic director of the Night, who welcomed firmly the audience and invited them to join the show. Nevertheless, Amadeus was not all alone during the whole Night but also the famous and beloved Italian comedian and actress Teresa Mannino was at his side, since Amadeus is joined by a different Italian artist on stage each Night of the Festival. Right before the start of the performances, Amadeus reminded the audience of the Second Night’s results.

The Third Night’s format

During the Second Night yesterday, all of the viewers had the opportunity to listen again to the first half of the total thirty (30) entrants of this year’s Festival di Sanremo, meaning the fifteen (15) of them. Thus, it was time for the rest of the fifteen (15) artists to perform once more their songs during La Terza Serata. As it happened during the Second Night with the first fifteen (15) entries, as far as the voting procedure is conserned, the exact same happened during the Third Night, meaning that the rest fifteen (15) participants were judged by a split system between the public, who held the 50% of the Night’s final result, and by the Jury of the press, who determined the rest of it.

The Third Night’s performances

All of the fifteen (15) candidates were introduced and presented not only by Amadeus and Teresa Mannino, but also by the Second Night’s performers, just like how it was done yesterday, while the Third Night’s participants appeared on stage according to the official running order that had been released a few hours ago. All of the songs were accompanied by a live orchestra with a different conductor each time and the lines opened for the public to vote right before the first performance. Thus the rest of the fifteen (15) entrants who performed their songs were the following:

(You can listen to the Night’s live performances by clicking on the songs’ titles)

01) Il Tre – “Fragili

Il Tre was presented by last Night’s fourth place, Loredana Bertè. The audience seemed to enjoy more the presence of Bertè rather than Il Tre’s, since everyone in the audience sang her song. However, Il Tre gave an absolute worthy performance of his song and seemed to enjoy it up until the last second. It’s a 6/10 by me.

02) Maninni – “Spettacolare

Maninni was presented on stage by Alfa. Alfa managed to pronounce correctly the Greek name of one of the song’s composers; good for him. Maninni gave a very beautiful performance of a really catchy ballad. It’s a 8/10 by me.

03) Bnkr44 – “Governo punk

Bnkr44 were presented by Fred de Palma. The band gave a quite adequate performance of their entry, although it is not my personal cup of tea. So it’s a 5/10 by me.

  • Right after the commercial break, the famous chorus “Va, pensiero” from Giuseppe Verdi’s opera “Nabucco” was beautifully performed by the Orchestra di Verona.

 

04) Santi Francesi – “L’amore in bocca

Santi Francesi were presented by Clara. They delivered a satisfying and fulfilling performance of their song with some very good vocals; it’s a 6/10 by me.

05) Mr. Rain – “Due altalene

Il Volo actually presented Mr. Rain on stage. Accompamied by his lovely swings on stage, Mr. Rain gave a quite sentimental performance, however personally I do not finf his song as catchy as some others, although the message behind of it is extremely touching talking about a father who lost both of his children, hence the two swings (= due altalene). It’s a 7/10 by me.

06) Rose Villain – “Click Boom

Rose Villain was accompanied by Gazelle on stage. Her song has a very interesting buildup for me, since its verse is completely different from the chorus in terms of rhythm. Rose Villain gave an excellent performance vocally speaking. It’s a 7/10 for me.

07) Alessandra Amoroso – “Fino a qui

Alessandra Amoroso was accompanied by Dargen D’Amico on stage. The audience totally enjoied Amoroso’s performance. Her song “Fino a qui” is a powerful ballad which was performed very well, vocally speaking, by the singer. It’s a 7/10 by me.

08) Ricchi e Poveri – “Ma non tutta la vita

BigMama presented Ricchi e Poveri. The duo that represented Italy in Eurovision 1978, gave a fully energetic performance of their song, giving some 70s vibes both musically and aesthetically speaking; it was quite fun I have to say, thus I give a 7/10.

09) Angelina Mango – “La noia

Angelina Mango was accompanied by Irama. Probalbly the Third Night’s biggest favourite, Angelina performed her song with full energy and she received the loudest round of applause. In my opinion she was a little bit stressed, but that was following since she is considered the Night’s favourite. Plus her chorus is really an earworm, TO.TAL! It’s a 8/10 by me.

10) Diodato – “Ti muovi

The Kolors presented Diodato on stage. My namesake Antonio Diodato was the next one to perform his song “Ti muovi”. The almost represantive of Italy in Eurovision 2020 gave an amazing performance, although I believe that his song is not at the same laevel with the unbeatable and insuperable “Fai rumore”. Nevertheless, it’s a 7/10 on my behalf.

11) Ghali – “Casa mia

Ghali was presented by Mahmood. Ghali performed his song, while he was totally influenced by Michael Jackson aesthetically. His song “Casa mia” though is not my cup of tea at all; it’s a 4/10 by me.

Negramaro were presented by Emma. Although they were better than their previous performance at the First Night, personally I do not think that they will reach the final top ten. It’s a 4/10 for me.

15) La Sad – “Autodistruttivo

And last but not least, last Night’s winner and Napolitano Geolier presented La Sad. Thus, the Night ended with a note of a punk aesthetic influenced by the mid 00s a bit. La Sad’s performance was full of energy and a nice stage presence; it’s a 6/10 by me.

In my personal opinion, the Third Night was not close enough to the Second Night’s performances, since only a few of the favourites were performed tonight. What do you think? Write down below at the comment section!

After a quick recap, the lines were closed for the public.

Special Guests

La Treza Serata had to offer an impressive guest list, just like the two previous ones. Among the famous artists present at the Teatro Ariston, the worldwide known American actor and an Academy Award winner, Russell Crowe was the absolute special guest star of the Night, who performed along with his band. Moreover, the famous Italian rapper Bresh performed aboard on the Costa Smeralda, the legendary Italian pop singer and actor Gianni Morandi was also present and the best selling Italian pop music duo of all time “Paola&Chiara” gave an amazing performance of their song “Furore“. The famous Italian actress Sabrina Ferilli and the famous actor Edoardo Leo promoted the upcoming TV series “Gloria” and the TV film “Il Clandestino” respectively. Moreover, the Italian playwriter and a Tony award winner Stefano Massini performed along with the Italian singer, composer and pianist Paolo Jannacci the unreleased dialogue song “L’uomo nel lampo” giving an extremely moving and touching performance that had the whole audience in tears. Of course, the one and only beloved Eros Ramazzotti performed the song “Terra Promessa” which Ramazotti had won the Newcomers section with, forty years ago, in Festival di Sanremo 1984.

Italy: The results of the Second Night of the Festival di Sanremo 2024!

Welcome back to the 74th edition of one of the most beloved shows in Europe, the Festival di Sanremo, or the Italian Song Festival 2024! After the magnificent and grand opening of the last First Night, during which the audience around Europe and the world had the opportunity to listen to all of the thirty (30) entrants for this year’s Festival, it is time for tonight’s Second Night, or for the Seconda Serata. Taking place in the coastal Italian town of Sanremo and held in the Teatro Ariston, the Festival di Sanremo offers to its winners the so called “right of first refusal” to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, only if they wish to do so. Alora, brace yourselves because the Second Night has officially begun!

Of course live on RAI Uno and RAI Play, the Teatro Ariston opened its gates for the Second Night of the Festival, while it became clear that almost 9 million viewers watched the First Night yesterday! Moreover, before the official opening of the Night, a few live interviews from BigMama, Angelina Mango and Negramaro were aired.

The presenters

The Serata opened by Ruggiero, who later was accompanied by Amadeus on stage. For once more, the famous Italian television and radio presenter, Amadeus, was, for his fifth and last year, not only the main host of the Night but also the artistic director of the whole Festival. Amadeus was welcomed firmly by the audience of Ariston. Right after, Amadeus welcomed back the audience of the theatre but also the millions of viewers all around the world. During each one of the Five Nights, Amadeus is not all alone on stage, but he is accompanied by a famous artist of the Italian music stage. Thus, during the Second Night, the famous Italian singer and songwriter Georgia was Amadeus’ co-host, who has already participated at the Festival di Sanremo four times, with the first one in 1995 being her winning one, while her last participation so far was last year, in 2023 with the song “Parole dette male”. After the first two performances, Georgia sang one of the most well known songs of her, “E Poi” which had first been presented in Sanremo 1994 in the “Nuove Proposte” section.

The Second Night’s format

In contrast to what happened during the First Night, in which all of the thrity (30) participants performed their songs for the very first time, during the Second Night only the half of them had to present again their entries, meaning the fifteen (15) of them. At the end of the Night, the fifteen entrants were judged not by the press jury this time but from a 50/50 split system between the public’s vote and the jury of the radio, where the latter has been detached from the press jury and has replaced the demoscopic jury from the previous years.

The Second Night’s performances

As it is already mentioned, during the Second Night half of the entrants had to perform once again their songs, meaning the fifteen (15) of them. All of the participants were introduced by Amadeus once more and were accompanied on stage by the rest fifteen (15) artists who will perform their entries during the Third Night. Remember that all of the Festival’s songs are accompanied by a live orchestra within the theatre. The lines opened for the public to vote right before the first performance and remained open during the whole time that the songs were performed. Thus, the first fifteen entrants who reperformed their songs were the following:

(You can listen to all of the Night’s live performances by clicking on the songs’ titles)

 

01) Fred De Palma – “Il cielo non ci vuole

Fred was accompanied by Ghali on the Festival’s stage. Fred De Palma performed his song with much more confidence than the previous Night and initiated the Serata with a powerful presence; it’s a 7/10 by me.

Alessandra Amoroso was the one who presented Mahmood to the audience. In his third participation in the Festival di Sanremo, Mahmood is a favourite for this year, since he was at the top5 of the press jury at the end of the First Night. Personally I think that Mahmood is going to be present again at the Night’s final top5, since he delivered a very good performance of his song; it’s a 8/10 by me.

Geolier was accompanied by Fiorella Manoia on stage. Geolier shared his performance with the audience and he was a little bit reserved in my opinion. However, the song has a catchy beat and rhythm; it’s a 7/10 by me.

12) Loredana Bertè – “Pazza

Sangiovanni was the one who welcomed Loredana Bertè on stage. A veteran of the Festival di Sanremo, Loredana Bertè came first at the voting of the press jury at the First Night. She shared her powerful and dynamic performance of her song “Pazza” and the audience seemed to enjoy the performance more than anyone else, since she received the loudest round of applause; I totally agree. It’s a 9/10 by me.

13) Annalisa – “Sinceramente

Maninni accompanied Annalisa on stage. Another most likely favourite to win is Annalisa who performed her song “Sinceramente” on stage; an extremely catchy song in Italian which the audience loves as well. I am 100% sure that Annalisa will end up at a high place, the question is which is going to be this place… It’s a 8/10 by me.

14) Irama – “Tu no

The duo of Ricchi e Poveri ushered Irama on stage. Although a little bit nervous, Irama was very good vocally at a very demanding ballad, which becomes even “greater” when it is performed live rather than in studion. It’s a 7/10 by me.

15) Clara – “Diamanti grezzi

Last but not least, Negramaro accompanied Clara on Sanremo’s stage for the final performance of the Second Night. Personally one of my favourites, the beautiful Clara performed her totally catchy song and thus she closed the Night’s running order. It’s a 9/10 by me.

After a quick recap the lines closed for the public.

 

Special Guests

La Seconda Serata had even more special guests than the First Night, coming not only from Italy but also from the rest of the world. Among them was of course a world-wide icon of the American cinema, John Travolta, who made a surprising entrance and danced along with Amadeus. The guest list also included the French record producer and DJ Bob Sinclar aboard on the “Costa Smeralda”, the Italian pianist and composer Giovanni Allevi who shared a deeply emotional recitation and a piano recital with the audience, the Nuova Orchestra Santa Balera who performed the famous song “Romagna Mia“, the Italian rapper Rosa Chemical who sang his song “Made in Italy” and the whole cast of the Italian TV series “The Sea Beyond” or “Mare Fuori”, while one of the members of the cast had the Ukrainian flag on her bossom, expressing this way her support for the country. Also, the famous Italian painter and set designer Gaetano Castelli was a special guest. Finally, the Italian singer Leo Gassmann performed at the very end of the Second Night, after all the fifteen (15) entries had been presented.

The results

As it is already known this year’s Festival encountered some significant changes. Thus, the results of the Second Night were determined by a split system between televoting and the Jury of the radio, where the former held the 50% of the Night’s final result and the latter the rest 50%. For the first time, as it happened at the First Night as well, only the top entries of the Senond Night’s ranking were revealed, meaning the top five. So, these were the results of the Second Night:

  1. Geolier – “I p’me, tu p’te”
  2. Irama – “Tu no”
  3. Annalisa – “Sinceramente”
  4. Loredana Bertè – “Pazza”
  5. Mahmood – “Tuta gold”

Italy: The results of the First Night of the Festival di Sanremo 2024! | Listen to the songs!

The Sanremo Music Festival 2024 has officialy begun! The 74th edition of the Festival di Sanremo, or the Italian Song Festival, is here taking place for once more at the Teatro Ariston, in the small town of the same name in Liguria. Through the Festival, which is the oldest annual music event not only in Europe but in the rest of the world as well, the winners will gain the so called “right of first refusal”, meaning the right to represent Italy in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest only if they wish to do so. Thus, the official Festival di Sanremo commences and the First Night or La Prima Serata is a fact!

Live on RAI Uno, the Night began with journalists and presenters of the broadcaster welcoming the audience and showing live footages outside of the Teatro Ariston and scenes from the backstage for almost twelve (12) minutes before the official airing of the Festival. Some little interviews of some of the Festival’s contestants were also aired.

The Carabinieri Fanfare opened the First Night, performing horseback right outside of the theatre.

The presenters

The Night started finding last year’s Italy’s representative Marco Mengoni on stage with the audience of the theatre welcoming him firmly. For the fifth and final year the famous Amedeo Umberto Rita Sebastiani, also known as Amadeus, was the artistic director and host of the Festival, while during each one of the five Nights he will be accompanied by a different artist of the Italian music scene. For tonight’s First Night Amadeus shared the stage with his co-host, Marco Mengoni, who is not only a familiar artist for the Festival, since he was the last year’s winner and representative of Italy with “Due Vite”, but he is also an old acquaintance with this year’s Eurovision host city, Malmö, because in 2013 he had represented his country singing “L’ essenziale”. Mengoni performed his song “Due Vite” live in the Festival.

This year’s format

This year’s Festival di Sanremo is characterized by some changes which had not occured during the last year or the years before. The first and foremost change is that during the First Night all of the thirty contestants had to performe their songs for the very first time and not the first fifteen or fourteen as it was used to happen. At the end of the Night, all of the thirty entrants were judged only by the jury of the press, TV and web which held the full percentage of the Night’s results.

The First Night’s performances

As it is already mentioned above, this year’s entrants are thirty (30) and not twenty eight (28) as it was the norm the last years. All of the entrants performed their songs in the official running order that was published some hours before. All of the entrants were introduced and accompanied by Amadeus on stage and all the songs are accompanied by live orchestra. Thus, the thirty (30) candidate entries for the Festival di Sanremo 2024 were the following:

01) Clara – “Diamanti Grezzi”

Arriving first on stage, Clara performed her song “Diamanti Grezzi” (=rough diamond). All alone on stage she sang her rhythmic pop dance song wearing a long dress.

 

02) Sangiovani – “Finiscimi”

Then, Sangiovani stepped on stage performing all alone as well his song “Finiscimi” (= finish me off). An interesting ballad with some rap influences.

 

03) Fiorella Mannoia – “Mariposa”

Arter him, Fiorella Mannoia appeared on stage singing her song “Mariposa” (= butterfly). An essentual, latin like rhythmical song, totally alone on stage.

 

04) La Sad – “Autodistruttivo”

Later, La Sad stepped on the stage singing their song “Autodistruttivo” (= self distractive). A rock song in Italian carring a heavy meaning, since people holding billboards accompanied them on stage.

 

05) Irama – “Tu no”

After a long commercial break, Irama came on stage performing his song “Tu no” (= not you). A power ballad in Italian with intense vocal requests from him.

 

06) Ghali – “Casa mia”

Later, it was time for Ghali and his song “Casa mia” (= my home), a pop song with some old retro disco vibes.

 

07) Negramaro – “Ricominciamo tutto”

08) Annalisa – “Sinceramente”

Another odds’ favourite was next to perform. Annalisa sang her song “Sinceramente” (=sincerely), a pop song with vivid 80’s sound. Annalisa was also alone on the stage.

09) Mahmood – “Tuta gold”

Coming up was Mahmood, an already known artist in Eurovision since he has already participated twice, in 2019 with “Soldi” and in 2022 along with Blanco singing “Brividi”. In his third attempt to represent Italy Mahmood performed his song “Tuta gold”, an upbeat song, one of those that Mahmood has made us become accustomed to.

 

10) Diodato – “Ti muovi”

The next one to perform was Diodato, who had already won the Festival di Sanremo in 2020 with his song “Fai Rumore”, a totally fan favourite song back then, capable and worthy of winning the Contest, which unfortunately was never held. However, Diodato is back to claim his lost chance. His song “Ti muovi” (= you move), is a sentimental ballad, which was accompanied by people on stage, although this song is not considered to be at the same level as “Fai rumore” was.

 

In the meantime, a very emotional and special medley was held in memory of the later Toto Cutugno, a legend of the Italian music stage and winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1990 with his song “Insieme: 1992“. Toto Cutugno passed away on the 23rd of August in 2023.

13) Alessandra Amoroso – “Fino a qui”

14) The Kolors – “Un ragazzo una ragazza”

Next in the running order to perform was the band The Kolors. Their song “Un ragazzo una ragazza” (= a boy a girl), is an upbeat dance song with elements of disco from the decade of the 70s.

 

15) Angelina Mango – “La noia”

We have reached the middle of the First Night’s performances. Rememeber untill last year this would have been perceived as the last song of the Serata. However, after the new rules all of the 30 entries have to be performed. Thus, Angelina Mango sang her song “La noia” (= the boredom), a total oxymoron, since her song was totally upbeat, filled by latin energy that invited everyone to get up and just dance.

 

During the interval, Marco Mengoni performed some of his songs and his 2013 entry “L’essenziale”.

 

16) Il Volo – “Capolavoro”

A symbol for the Italian music around the world, the duo Ricchi e Poveri represented Italy in Eurovision back in 1978 singing “Questo Amore” and came 12th.

19) Emma – “Apnea”

Another familiar artist with the Contest is Emma Morrone, who represented Italy in Eurovision in 2014 with her song “La mia città”. Her song “Apnea” encorporates some techno music elements along with dance pop sounds. An upbeat song that the audience seemed to enjoy.
