SANREMO , EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW by Daniela

Less than a month is left until the Sanremo Festival and as I feel you are interested in the event, I pass on the translation of how the various evenings will take place.

sanremo 01

The 69th edition of the Festival of the Italian Song of Sanremo – which sees Claudio Baglioni’s artistic direction for the second year – will be broadcast on Rai1 from Tuesday, February 5 to Saturday, February 9, 2019 live from the Ariston Theater. The Festival will be divided into five evenings and, new this edition, will include a single race: there will be no more “champions” and “new proposals” but only artists who will compete on equal terms so that their song can achieve victory (two winners Sanremo Giovani – which will take place on 20 and 21 December – will enter the February 2019 competition).

First Evening (Tuesday, February 5, 2019)

The curtain will rise on stage at the Teatro Ariston and all 24 artists will sing their song for the first time.

The voting for each of the aforementioned songs will take place with mixed system: (i) of the public, through Televoto  (vote from home through the phone),(ii) ( of the Demoscopic jury (a sample of 300 people selected among the regular users of music, will vote at home, through an electronic voting system) and (iii) of the jury of the Press Room (press room journalists) . The three voting systems will have – in determining the ranking of the 24 songs interpreted in the evening – a percentage weight distributed as follows: Televoto 40%; 30% Demographic jury; jury of the Press Room 30%.

Third Evening (Thursday 7 February 2019)

During this event we will be able to listen for the second time the remaining 12 of the 24 songs in the competition.

Voting will take place in a mixed system: (i) of the public, through Televoto, (ii) of the Demoscopica jury and (iii) of the jury of the Press Room. The three voting systems will have – in determining the ranking of the 12 songs interpreted in the evening – a percentage weight distributed as follows: Televoto 40%; 30% Demographic jury; jury of the Press Room 30%.

Fourth Evening (Friday 8 February 2019)

It will be a real evening-event in which each artist will sing – in the company of a guest – his own song, in a version “revisited” for the occasion.

Voting in the evening will take place with mixed system, (i) of the public through the Televoto, (ii) of the jury of the Press Room and (iii) of the jury of the Experts (composed of characters from the world of music, entertainment, culture). The three voting systems in the evening will have a percentage weight distributed as follows: Televoto 50%; jury of the Press Room 30%; jury of experts 20%.

The average percentage of votes obtained in the evening and those obtained in the previous evenings will determine a ranking of the 24 songs / artists. Rai-Rai Uno Direction reserves the right to assign a special prize to the interpretation-performance with the most voted guest artist in the evening.

Fifth Evening – Final Evening (Saturday 9 February 2019)

After having listened to all 24 songs in the competition, we will discover the winning track of the 69th edition of the Italian Song Festival.

Voting will take place in a mixed system: (i) of the public, through Televoto, (ii) of the jury of the Press Room and (iii) of the jury of experts. The three voting systems in the evening will have a percentage weight distributed as follows: Televoto 50%; jury of the Press Room 30%; jury of experts 20%.

At the end of the voting, the average percentage of votes obtained in the evening and those obtained in the previous evenings will determine a ranking of the 24 songs / artists. Repetition – through live performance or through recording (RVM) of the last performance – of the 3 songs (or parts of them) that have obtained the highest overall score in the aforementioned ranking.

At the end, there will be a new vote, always with a mixed system: (i) of the public, through Televoto, (ii) of the jury of the Press Room and (iii) of the jury of experts. The three voting systems will always have a percentage weight distributed as follows: Televoto 50%; jury of the Press Room 30%; jury of experts 20%. The average of the voting percentages obtained in the last voting session and those obtained in the previous votes will determine a new ranking of the 3 songs / Artists. The song / Artist first in the standings will be proclaimed Winner of Sanremo 2019. The second and third classified will also be proclaimed.

Therefore you understand that voting at home will have a great weight.

We will be able to vote 5 times from every telephone (fixed or portable).

You can also vote from Europe if you use a telephone card (also minimum rechargeable) of the TIM operator, VODAFONE, WIND, 3. It is also possible to vote by text message.

I’m finding out if people in the U.S. can vote by mobile phone and if the vote will be valid.

Sanremo Young, which was broadcast in December, was also visible in live streaming, I think it will also be done for the February race.

This news has just been published: For those who do not have the opportunity to see the Festival, there is an  alternative way to view it: watching the show in streaming, thanks to the RaiPlay platform, which is also completely free (however you must register).

I will keep you informed about live streaming and also about the possibility of voting.

  1. Thank you Daniela for translating all that information for the English speaking people. I wish and hope that we are allowed to vote from USA. I actually have a dual citizenship, US and EU, but don’t know if that counts for anything in regards to voting. Please continue to keep us informed. Warm regards, Anna Pazitny

  2. oh Daniela, this is vital info. thank you so much for sharing this with us. This is really intense.

    re voting from home – what about the other countries from the rest of the world? our guys have fans from all over the world….
    and i’d like to vote as well if i can….

    grazie… eager for your further updates… and further details on how to watch LIVE.

    Grazie Grazie Grazie
    BACI

      1. i was just wondering – if Ultimo has his fan base mostly just locally (Italy), then it might be big…. and if voting is only in Italy, (fair enough, it’s an Italian contest and show… )

      2. Yes Cynthia, Ultimo’s problem, is that he is followed by little girls, and they vote repeatedly even if the song is not good.

      3. Little Girls for Ultimo????!!!!?!?!?!!!?!?
        they better start looking at our guys! – more handsome and singing beyond better!

        i’m going to ask friends in Italy, and ask them to ask their children, if they could please vote for our guys…..

  3. As always, thank you so much Daniela for this great information. That is a lot of pressure for the singers. I feel confident our guys are ready and up to the challenge. I hope there is a way to watch at least part of the competition and also vote from the US. Looking forward to more information.

    1. Janet, I think it will be possible to watch live the various episodes, Sanremo hopes a lot in visibility beyond Italy.
      For the vote, as soon as I know details, I will send them to you.

  4. Thanks, Daniela! Those of us in the USA will be waiting for news about the voting process! We do appreciate your help! ♡♡♡♡♡♡

  5. Daniela, can you also find out how and where you can register for the live streaming? Thanks for all this useful information!! If we can vote in the US/Canada it will be amazing!

    1. Penina, I think you’ll have to register (if asked) directly on the site for the live streaming of RAI1, however, as soon as I have more reliable news, I communicate immediately.

  6. Once again Daniela you have kept us informed. We’re all interested in voting and thank you for giving us a chance. All around the world, people will be viewing and hoping to participate. This is exciting. Thank you so much.

    1. Yes, Victoria, it’s very exciting, and still missing a month, as soon as we’ll be at Sanremo, it will be a frenzy !!

  7. A big hug and kiss to you Daniela for all this information. I am excited that this championship is going to be happening soon! and I will look forward to your reviews. Grazie! Grazie!

  8. Daniela, again you have come through with giving us here in USA all the timely information on the Festival. Thank you so much for all your translations and explanations,which are much appreciated.Now looking forward to February 5th and wishing the Guys all the best of luck with their song.

  9. Daniela thank you for explaining the voting system day by day. I never understood how it worked !! You clarified that beautifully !! I will be watching and recording it here in Florida on Rai1 !! I can’t wait to hear our guys perform their new song !! I am so excited and happy for them !! 💕💕💕

    1. Glad you liked Joanie. We only hope that the “press room” jury and the “experts” jury will not have their ears closed, like 4 years ago.

  10. Many thanks Daniela for this info. Last year RaiItalia showed the complete Sanremo show on the South African TV screen. I am so hoping that it will be the same this year!! Because now, thanks to your detailed translated article, I will be able to follow the day by day procedure more clearly, as I have no hope to ever be able to understand the Italian language, no matter how hard I try!!!!!

    1. But come on Ineke, I find you are very good with Italian.
      I think that, even this year, you’ll have the pleasure of seeing all the live television!

    1. Wiwibloggs, I follow it too is the site that talks about Eurovision and all the news of that event. This page loves and respects IL VOLO.

    1. For now Cynthia, I can not answer, as regards the registration to the RAI platform, I think they will give more secure news in a few days and, perhaps, not even need registration.

  11. Daniela again thanks for this information. I hope we can see it streaming. Will wait for your information. Do you have a feeling who the ‘guest’ will be. I have my own idea.

    1. Yes, Gina, I have an idea and I think it’s the same you have …… who better than someone who wrote part of the song ???

      1. Always cross the fingers …… soon my fingers will be completely knotted by force of crossing them

  12. All of you, have you seen this message from the guys ??

    P= Hi guys.
    G = We are working on the new cd, we are in the recording studio.
    P = Ignazio agrees?
    I = I agree on everything
    P = Are you ready guys for Sanremo?
    G = Soon, there is little left.
    I = Get ready
    P = MUSICA CHE RESTA
    G = We are coming back
    P = Hello

  13. It will be really great Daniela if we in Europe will get the chance to vote. Our Darling Boys will stand a greater chance of not only going to the Finals but also of winning. I do wish that it will also be open for the States. Wonderful. Thank you
