Mauro Picotto is still in activity. In the past he collaborated with Gigi D'Agostino. It is a nice suggestion to see him in Sanremo or as a guest of the ESC 2022. Congratulations on your dream, Daybreak. At the moment he deals, if I'm not mistaken, only with Techno.I'll throw my dream/never gonna happen trance artist suggestion out there Is Mauro Picotto still active?
I liked more Taken by a stranger then Satellite. More mature and dark to my point of view.It's always hard to perform at home, after the one who won the competition.
I feel like Germany did the right thing with Lena. Maybe boring for some people, but I would just say: let your winner perform again. Maybe with a song even closer to them.
San Remo is excellent because almost nobody (I assume?!) comes there to compete for the festival and specially not for Eurovison: they come to compete for Italian and global music market and I think that is one of the reasons why Italy is doing so good. They don't add this "festival" formula hoping to do well and winning San Remo is probably not an ultimate goal for most of those who enter the festival. I just hope Italy will continue selecting their representatives through San Remo because it means (regardless of our personal tastes) we are getting quality and in most cases relevant or already established names for Eurovision stage from Italian music market. I don't want to imagine some cheap pre-selection for Italy outside San Remo, please don't do it.
Small countries can have their competitions Sanremo style too.agree! hopefully, more countries will follow suit - I mean big countries, I don't expect countries like Malta and Cyprus to have their San Remo and them buying songs works just well imo
If he keeps having so many songs in Sanremo next year then it's more likely that we'll see him competing as a songwriter. Tiziano Ferro as an interval act is very much a real possibility though.I do want to see Dardust as ESC 2022 interval. Or make it another Tiziano Ferro mini concert LOL.

Look at Albania, after Sanremo Festival i Kenges is one of the oldest music festivals.
Albania is a small country with limited resources but at least they try.
I think France should continue with its selection, the good results are coming but please no more Tom Loeb case. Spain and Germany should restart again with their national selections and should insist making them more stronger each year even if they fail sometimes.
If Malta and Cyprus "have more money", they can easily organize their own festival. If these festivals were properly advertised, it would capture the love of the Balkan, North African and part of the Middle Eastern nations. To these nations are added Italy, Spain and the UK (look at the voting statistics in the semifinals and finals and you will understand). Cyprus, even more than Malta, would enjoy the historic alliance with Greece (a potential + 10.72 million would certainly be added to a population of 875,899).Albania is actually a big country tho - they have around 8-10 million people around the world. You cannot compare that with Malta and Cyprus who are richer but much smaller. And tho FiK has its tradition that doesn't mean that it's working - for the past few years all they had was a qualification that was barely a qualification (bar 2018) and around 20th place finish in the final or a NQ...
Many Italians would not like to see Tiziano Ferro on stage. We have a lot of respect for him but now he's just a faded image of what he was like in the past. Tiziano’s voice no longer has the power and clarity of the past.I do want to see Dardust as ESC 2022 interval. Or make it another Tiziano Ferro mini concert LOL.
Albania is a small country, around 3 million. And who pays for that Festival is the Albanian public broadcaster not the diaspora.Albania is actually a big country tho - they have around 8-10 million people around the world.
