Sanremo participants presented

Sanremo

The traditional Sanremo music festival will take place in Italy in February and today, RAI presented this year’s participants. Italy will be competing in Eurovision Song Contest next year as well and if the familiar selection procedure is used, the winner of Sanremo will head for Copenhagen. However, RAI is yet to confirm the selection format.

Once again, there are two categories; one for newcomers and another for established artists. In the category for the established artists, all the artists will sing two songs. Another one of the songs will qualify for the final night but none of the artists will be eliminated.

The winner is being chosen by the televoters and professional jury.

  • Arisa –  Lentamente and Controvento
  • Noemi – Bagnati dal sole and Un uomo è un albero
  • Raphael Gualazzi* feat Bloody Beetroots – Liberi o no and Tanto ci sei
