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).

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%.

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.

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.

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.

SLOVENIA-CROATIA Concerts and SANREMO by Daniela

The last concerts in Slovenia and Croatia are finished too.

IL VOLO has been very applauded.

Everywhere they have been admired for bravura, modesty and kindness.

But let’s go in order:

SLOVENIA

S-C and S 01

S-C and S 10

And this is the tweet of the U.S. Ambassador in Zagreb.

But now, let’s move on to the last great news:

IL VOLO will be back in the race at SANREMO !!!!!

S-C and S 11

Here is the moment of public news on television.

S-C and S 12

And this is the moment when the boys, at the end of the concert in Croatia, have become aware of their presence in Sanremo.

P = Hello everyone, we just finished a concert and we wanted to give you great news.

I = We have just learned that we too will be in Sanremo this year.

G = It will be the best way to celebrate our 10 years of career, returning to sing just in Sanremo, in the stage that saw us born.

P = Hello Claudio, see you in Sanremo.

S-C and S 13

You got it, right??

Il Volo will be back in Sanremo, but not as guests, as COMPETITORS, they will do the whole race, will suffer criticism, the votes from home and jurors, in short, a real race like almost 4 years ago.

My God, what have these 3 guys thought about doing?

If the result is not positive, they will be very criticized …. but they are already very used to this thing.

We have to say that they deserve all our esteem, just because they will redo the whole race. They could avoid, because they are already famous, and certainly it is much more comfortable being in cotton ……. but NO, they love the risk and we, volovers of the whole world, we must give them all our support.

They will be hard days, exciting, tense, but if they succeed in repeating the success, they would open the streets again for Eurovision.

If you are worried, because participating in Sanremo would mean that they will not make the US tour, my opinion is that you can rest assured, Sanremo will be from 5 to 9 February and Torpedine said the tour will start at Radio City Music Hall in March. I do not think the program will change.

Their song will surely be a pop-opera song, the title MUSICA CHE RESTA means “A music that remains” that you will not forget!

And we hope it’s really like that, I wish them with all my heart.

Good luck, guys, you deserve all the possible success!
