Festival of San Remo tonight: Italy might decide.

Tonight, we will be able to watch the final of the 2002 Festival of San Remo. You will be able to watch it from 20:30 CET here. 23 contestants will compete for the trophy. Before the final, they all had to declare whether they want to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest. If it is a ‘yes’, this will be known right after the contest during the winners press conference. If not, it is likely that Italy will have a contestant tomorrow afternoon. Last year, during the winners press conference, Mahmood stated he wanted to go to Eurovision, but later started to doubt. That is not possible this year.

The contestants will be:

  • Irene Grandi, “Finalmente io”
  • Marco Masini, “Il confronto”
  • Rita Pavone, “Niente (Resilienza 74)”
  • Achille Lauro, “Me ne frego”
  • Diodato, “Fai rumore”
  • Le Vibrazioni, “Dov’é”
  • Anastasio, “Rosso di rabbia”
  • Elodie, “Andromeda”
  • Alberto Urso, “Il sole ad est”
  • Riki, “Lo sappiamo entrambi”
  • Raphael Gualazzi, “Carioca”
  • Piero Pelù, “Gigante”
  • Elettra Lamborghini, “Musica (e il resto scompare)”
  • Enrico Nigiotti, “Baciami adesso”
  • Levante, “Tikibombom”
  • Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, “Ringo Starr”
  • Tosca, “Ho amato tutto”
  • Francesco Gabbani, “Viceversa”
  • Paolo Jannacci, “Voglio parlarti adesso”
  • Rancore, “Eden”
  • Julio Cally, “No grazie”
  • Giordana Angi, “Come mia madre”
  • Michele Zarillo, “Nell’ estasi o nel fango”

Originally there should have been 24 performers but Bugo and Morgan are disqualified. They were supposed to sing “Sincero”, but were disqualified because Morgan decided to change the lyrics, which is not allowed. The words he sang were clearly meant to insult Bugo,: “The bad intentions, the rudeness, your bad figure last night, your ingratitude, your arrogance, do what you want by putting your feet on your head. ” is what he sang. But you only know how to cultivate envy. Thank the sky if you are on this stage, respect who brought you here and this is certainly me.” An angry Bugo left the stage.

Apart from this disqualification: so far, Francesco Gabbani is in the lead. It would be the 2nd time for him to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest.
