It's gonna be in Italy, so... either it's gonna be hosted in one of those big arenas or a smaller one -- which makes Ariston somehow eligible for this purpose.

If "Nel blu, dipinto di blu" doesn't feature at some point during the contest next year I'm going to riot.

true but we need to realize that EBU won't allow that, it's only RAI who is organizing it.

I refer to the Ariston Theatre, though are you're implying RAI and the theatre are collaborating when organizing SanRemo?

It just popped into my head that in Italy it's illegal to show minors on live TV after midnight. What will this mean for the contest? Will they finish everything before midnight? Or will they raise the minimum age for the contestants?

I didn't think about that. I guess they'll either ask the Italian government to make an exception or they'll put the rule just for next year that the artist need to be 18, I don't think that they would shorten the contest

Because the shows didn't happen in Italy, so the minors involved weren't "working" under Italian laws. But in shows produced in Italy they stop showing them on camera after midnight even if they are physically present in the studio/arena.
Oooooooh, that's interesting. Maybe there is a loophole, but most probably it would be allowed for those three nights. :)

What do you mean the shows didn't happen in Italy? Sanremo is in Italy right? I'm confused :lol:

Anyways, how often do we have minors in Eurovision anyways? The youngest act this year was 18 right?

There are no minors performing after midnight in Sanremo. As an example: Raphael Gualazzi in 2020 had two child dancers as part of his act, but since they had him perform after midnight on one of the evenings, he had to do it without the dancers.

The two girls who were 18 this year were 17 when they were originally chosen for Eurovision in 2020, so it's completely possible to have minors next year. Assuming the show will start and finish at the same time as this year, those singers would have to leave the arena or "hide" in the backstage before midnight and wouldn't be allowed to receive the trophy and perform again in case they won or even just react in front of the cameras when they receive points.

I don't think that they can really speak English so I would guess no
That's a pity. Although I wouldn't mind if they kept it in Italian for the most part. At least our commentator would stop trying to translate everything (including the jokes).
