After three nights of original songs, tonight provided a breath of fresh air for the Festival di Sanremo with cover night. All 25 competing artists performed a cover of an Italian or international song from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s, with or without a special guest.
A combination of the demoscopic jury, press jury and televote determined tonight’s result. These votes will contribute to determining who will win the famous golden lion statue and who will represent Italy at Eurovision 2022 as the host entry.
Tonight’s top 3 was as follows:
- Gianni Morandi ft. Jovanotti – Medley
- Mahmood and Blanco – Il cielo in una stanza
- Elisa – What a Feelin’
As such, Gianni Morandi was tonight’s big winner. He is competing in Sanremo with his feel-good song ‘Apri tutte le porte’.
After four nights, the general classification of Sanremo is as follows:
- Mahmood e Blanco – Brividi
- Gianni Morandi – Apri tutte le porte
- Elisa – O forse sei tu
- Irama – Ovunque sarai
- Sangiovanni – Farfalle
- Emma – Ogni volta è così
- La Rappresentante di Lista – Ciao Ciao
- Massimo Ranieri – Lettera di là dal mare
- Fabrizio Moro – Sei tu
- Michele Bravi – Inverno dei fiori
- Achille Lauro – Domenica
- Matteo Romano – Virale
- Dargen D’Amico – Dove si balla
- AKA 7even – Perfetta così
- Noemi – Ti amo non lo so dire
- Ditonellapiaga con Rettore – Chimica
- Iva Zanicchi – Voglio amarti
- Giovanni Truppi – Tuo padre, mia madre, Lucia
- Rkomi – Insuperabile
- Le Vibrazioni – Tantissimo
- Yuman – Ore e qui
- Highsnob e Hu – Abbi cura di te
- Giusy Ferreri – Miele
- Ana Mena – Duecentomila ore
- Tananai – Sesso occasionale
This means that Eurovision 2019 runner-up Mahmood and Blanco and their intimate ballad ‘Brividi’ are still leading the scoreboard. As we approach tomorrow’s final, the results are only becoming tighter and tomorrow’s show is guaranteed to be a nail-biter.
Tonight, Amadeus was joined by famous actress Maria Chiara Giannetta as a co-host. Guests included famous Italian artist Jovanotti and Sanremo alumni Pinguini Tattici Nucleari, who performed their Sanremo 2020 song Ringo Starr.
As usual, tonight’s show was filled with iconic moments, including Orietta Berti’s meme-worthy sunglasses, Achille Lauro worshipping Loredana Berté and Emma shouting ‘it’s Britney b****’ during a cover of …Baby One More Time.
