Sanremo concludes tonight – Who made it to the final?

Over the last four nights, Italy has been showing off some of their best talent through the Sanremo Song Festival. For Eurovision fans, this is also a Song Festival to take note of, as the winner of the Big Artists section is likely to go on and represent Italy at Eurovision. In total, 22 Big artists have taken to the stage, and now there are 16 who will perform in the Sanremo final tonight. Over the last three nights, the Newcomers section has taken place with 8 artists in total. In our last post about Sanremo, we had given the results from night 1 and 2, so let’s recap night 3 and 4, and talk about who’s participating in the final tonight.

Night 3

On the third night, the Big Artists performed their cover songs. In total there were 16 artists to perform, with the 6 others who missed out on performing their cover songs the same artists who had reached the bottom three in both night 1 and 2.

Within Sanremo, there is another competition, and this is for the cover songs. The three most popular cover songs were voted to be:

  • Ermal Meta – Amara Terra Mia (Domenico Modugno)

The bottom 6 artists also got a second chance to be readmitted to the final, with four places still available. The top four artists who returned to the competition were:

  • Ron – L’ottava Meraviglia
