Italy will once again be using Sanremo to select their entry, with the winner given the first opportunity to travel to Kyiv. Il Volo accepted in 2015 but of course we had the mini drama of Stadio refusing the offer this year, making way for (the much superior) Francesca Michielin! More details of the Sanremo dates are below (and in Adam's very own calendar!):

One act that wants to take part is Italian 1997 representatives Jalisse, we shall see if they are in the final line-up which is due fairly soon I believe! I think I read a rumour that one Italian representative since their 2011 comeback is also going to return to Sanremo - if so it'll probably be a Nina Zilli or a Raphael Gualazzi.

'Fiumi di parole' is the best Italian entry I'm aware of so I would very much welcome a Jalisse return.

The 22 acts for the big artists section have been revealed, the only real interesting selections are Giusy Ferreri and Chiara. I'd assume the former has a big chance to win.

Al Bano
Elodie
Paola Turci
Samuel Umberto Romano
Fiorella Mannoia
Nesli feat. Alice Paba
Michele Bravi
Fabrizio Moro
Giusy Ferreri
Gigi D'Alessio
Raige feat. Giulia Luzi
Ron
Ermal Meta
Michele Zarrillo
Lodovica Comello
Sergio Sylvestre
Clementino
Alessio Bernabei
Chiara
Francesco Gabbani
Bianca Atzei
Marco Masini

Giusy was bottom 3 in the vote of her "heat" on Tuesday when half performed their Sanremo songs so I presume she won't have a chance during the re-vote on Saturday. Apparently Fiorella is a clear favourite although I wonder if she would want to do Eurovision...

Fiorella has tour dates throughout the Eurovision period including the dates of the final and both semis so if she does win it'll end up going to the runner up.

Apparently she's said that she'd perhaps be interested still and could try and move tour dates around, I'm hoping not though as she's probably my least favourite of all the apparent contenders!

Ah I find Giusy's voice quite and miss so I'm glad she's not such a cert as I thought laugh.gif Fiorella is massive in Italy, I find her a bore though and nothing special and amusingly m'annoia means "bores me" in Italian so her name is at least fitting. I suppose it depends how practical her moving her tour dates around is and whether she prefers doing that or missing out on Eurovision but I wouldn't be fussed if she just toured instead kink.gif

TOMORROW'S NATIONAL FINAL...
ITALY



Festival di Sanremo


11th February 2017
Begins at 7.40pm in the UK or 8.40pm Central European Time and in Italy.
Programme is scheduled to last 4 hours 20 minutes.

Watch the selection via the official RAI webcast.


Running Order
01 | Elodie - Tutta colpa mia
02 | Michele Zarrillo - Mani nelle mani
03 | Sergio Sylvestre - Con te
04 | Fiorella Mannoia - Che sia benedetta
05 | Fabrizio Moro - Portami via
06 | Alessio Bernabei - Nel mezzo di un applauso
07 | Marco Masini - Spostato di un secondo
08 | Paola Turci - Fatti bella per te
09 | Bianca Atzei - Ora esisti solo tu
10 | Francesco Gabbani - Occidentali's Karma
11 | Chiara - Nessun posto casa mia
12 | Clementino - Ragazzi fuori
13 | Ermal Meta - Vietato morire
14 | Lodovica Comello - Il cielo non mi basta
15 | Samuel - Vedrai
16 | Michele Bravi - Il diario degli errori

Voting
The voting will consist of two rounds and both rounds will be determined by 40% televoting, 30% expert jury voting and 30% demoscopic poll voting. The latter is a sample of 300 music fans that will vote from home. The president of the expert jury will be Giorgio Moroder. The top three entries from the first round of voting will advance to the superfinal where the winner will then be chosen. It is important to remember that the winner receives the right to represent Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest, but do not have to take up the offer if they don't wish to.

Furthermore, it is not mandatory that the song the artist performs in Sanremo goes on to become their Eurovision entry. Nevertheless, there are rumours that changes to the rules have been made (whether written or unwritten) and that the winning Sanremo song will automatically become the Eurovision entry. And if the winner declines, the runner-up will be asked first and so on in order of results. Based on last year, more details of the Eurovision entry should arise in the press conference that follows the conclusion of Sanremo.

The Favourites
Fiorella Mannoia is an absolute clear odds-on 4/5 favourite and it will be a massive surprise if she doesn't take victory tomorrow night. Acts who should be in contention for a top 3 finish, and beat Firoella in the event of a shock result, include Elodie, Ermal Meta, Fabrizio Moro, Francesco Gabbani and Sergio Silvestre. All of these are trading around the 8/1 and 10/1 mark.

Giusy has been eliminated, and to many people's surprise so has Al Bano! He was 2nd favourite at the beginning of the week ohmy.gif

This now looks to be the most likely winner/ESC representative if Fiorella doesn't go:



(He's gained hype just because he has a gorilla on stage...)

After a couple of listens I can get on board with that actually, the studio version at least!

Fiorella would have to cancel/reschedule 8 tour dates to do Eurovision, she only has about 20-22 in total. Francesco has "no shows" on his website however!

Ooh I like that! ohmy.gif That many dates is quite a lot for Fiorella to cancel tbf and in that event I'd be fine with that song. It's the sort of staging that could stand out and be a bit of a meme so could be a solid choice.

Please give us Italian gorillas. I don't care what the competition is, that HAS to go.

Bit of a banging musical tune too.

I prefer Wednesday's original performance when Francesco was wearing the orange jumper... I find him even more charming. And, I LOVE his sparkling eyes - very rare.

Sigh. Francesco and the dancing gorilla to win of the final three remaining then (the only one like of the last 3). Samuel 10th 😕, Alessio 15th 😡.

I imagine Fiorella will still win, hoping Francesco can beat Ermal to 2nd so he can go to Eurovision in the event Fiorella is busy touring. I do like Ermal's song too, but Francesco would be a perfect entry!
