Italy was the last country to announce their entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo, Sweden. Marco Mengoni was announced as the respresentative a while back but it wasn’t until this morning that the song was made known to the public. L’essenziale won the “Big Artist” category with the song.

    A very dramatic sound, Italian is a strong language and this song works well with that. 500% imporvement on 2011 and 2012 but still not a winner in my eyes although I guess many will disagree

    Thumbs up.
    I could easily see San Marino and Italy as #1, #2. A win-win situation for Italy either way…
