Several people said during Sanremo Final night that he indicated he wouldn't go. I don't have a source for that so I can only go by what people have said.

I'm quite shocked about that, 'cause it's a big huge amazing lie. Don't know why people has to say things they don't know. :?

However I think Nek won't be at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016, they will go on with Sanremo as national selection and Nek won't come back next year (maybe in 2036 :lol:)

26th May 2015, 15:19
I don't know who they will pick but they have actually high chances to win next year cause since the semifinals:

2004 ::gr came 3rd -> 2005 ::gr won
2007 ::ru came 3rd -> 2008 ::ru won
2011 ::se came 3rd -> 2012 ::se won
2014 ::se came 3rd -> 2015 ::se won

I know that's pretty random and theories like this are usually false But still it could happen.

So 2014 was abnormal, and the selection of Emma from outside of Sanremo is unlikely to happen again anytime soon?

Annalisa couldn't be chosen the same way...if she's open to it?

I actually think that Alessandra Amoroso could be our representative.

She has never competed in Sanremo Festival, only twice but as a guest (or three times, I don't remember well). Now she is trying to enter the spanish/latin market and she is working on her new album for the italian public, so Sanremo 2016 could be a good way to promote it.

And there is a good reason to think this way: everybody here in Italy is saying that the next Sanremo Festival will be host by Carlo Conti again, with Maria De Filippi.

She is the creator, producer and tv host of Amici di Maria De Filippi, the biggest italian talent show (the second is The X Factor), and Alessandra Amoroso (along with Emma Marrone) won an edition of Amici so she could enter Sanremo for the first time if Maria De Filippi will be the tv host of the our festival.

Then ok, she has to win it, but she would have high chances to manage it.

Her music doesn't drive me crazy, but I like this song:

I think Annalisa will never go Eurovision because when RAI/Sanremo choose a woman (Nina Zilli or Emma internally) she is not competing in Sanremo and when she is present in Sanremo wins another artist (Marco Mengoni and Il Volo) ... #truestory xcry1

This is the new single

Rai is actually happy for the results of the viewing figures, this is their main goal. They don't care for the result in the voting (maybe it's even better for them). They are not so interested in the Eurovision Song Contest to create a new Turkey mess, I think.

Annalisa needs to ditch her current writers.She was making amazing contemporary pop on her first albums but Warner are trying to make her too middle of the road now.Her delivery at SR was the best iv seen from her,but she needs to get back to her old writers.
Dolcenera is fantastic and just needs a killer song to win a SR.
Malika Ayane is incredible.She isnt the type of artist to win an ESC,but so what,shed still place very high.
Arisa is a wonderful singer but would probably be similar to Malika.Place high but not trouble the top.
The other i would add is Alessandra Amoroso.I know not everyone likes her, but with the right song she could smash the televote at a SR.I fancy she might be there next year and challenge the podium.

Cozzy
31st May 2015, 20:24
I think we should forget about Annalisa and Malika, they both took part at this year's Festival of Sanremo.
I'd like to see Noemi representing us, maybe with something like "Don't get me wrong", or, as someone said before, Dolcenera, but she is never ranked high at the televote.

Day after day I'm sure that The Kolors could be one of the possibile contestants for ::it at the Eurovision 2016. They're currently #1 in the italian album charts, with a platinum in 2 weeks, and the american section of Live Nation Entertainment showed its interest for them.

7th June 2015, 13:09
I dont rate Noemi live.I know she is popular but i cant see her winning a SR.As people have said Dolcenera would be a great choice,but even the wonderful "Ci vediamo a casa" only got 5.59% of the televote.She was up against amazing songs from Emma and Arisa though.She would need a real killer song.I would love to see her win though as i rate her very highly.This year proved an amazing jury winner wont/cant win without a big televote.I still think Alessandra Amoroso with the right song could get a good televote,but would need the jury onside.At this stage i think she is a serious contender for selection.

Whomever they send next year, they will go again with the a big fish, I'm sure.

Italy is now among my favourite countries since their return in 2011.

They act kinda "We don't care, we just chill here at the ESC", but depsite that- they have huge stars year after year. And great high-quality songs you can realize with ease they are from Italy.

Well, Emma wasn't good, but despite that it was great to see Italy can fail, too.

I'm sure we'll see and hear something good from Italy in 2016.

Raphael Gualazzi wasn't really a huge star here. However, he's still a respected musician here.
Nina Zilli was more popular than Gualazzi at that time, but still not a star.
Marco Mengoni started to be a superstar with L'Essenziale, now he's one of the top artists here.
Emma Marrone became both a followed singer and one under the gossip rules. I feel like there's a bit more hate than love for her here...
Il Volo, yes, started to get more fame in Italy, but there are still divided opinions. They showed what they can do outside Italy, before Sanremo & ESC, now I guess they're able to keep their fame on.

Annalisa is really back on top form with Splende and Vincero.I was a bit worried last summer with songs like L'Ultimo Addio and Sento solo il presente that Warner were giving her songs far too lightweight,and to be blunt poor for her.She was superb at Sanremo though and her RadioItalia live concert and is back to her best again.
She is easily my favourite Italian artist (though Malika Ayane is probably the most talented Italian singer),and id love to see her at ESC.If RAI use Sanremo again though that might never happen.There is also the fact even if they selected outside SR, Arisa might be ahead of Nali due to her RAI connections.It might come down to if Warner think Nali would be more likely to do well in Europe (she would).

Have our Italian friends heard anything more from RAI about SR,and if the ESC entry is coming from there?,

No news yet, though it seems very unlikely that either Annalisa or Arisa will be taking the ESC stage next year (the first won't have a new album to promote, the second told the press that she needs a pause from the business). The SR formula has been quite successful with Mengoni and il Volo so I can't see any alternative at the moment. We have to wait until Christmas, when the participants of next SR will be revealed, to understand what the majors are up to.

Yes agree.Alessandra Amoroso could be interesting.I know she hasnt done a lot this year and has faded from view a bit but didnt she have a throat operation earlier in the year?.I thought she was back to her best in the Radio Italia concert below.Surely she must be at SR next year having missed out so often?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBQegpxAi4o

This years SR was so strong it will be very hard to follow up next year IMO.Conti packed it with for me the best artists in Italy,so he might of left next years a bit short.Time will tell.

For sure he/she will go with the song that wins Sanremo, but this will be cleared only when the singer will be chosen (so it should be a decision of him/her and his/her team).

Yes agree.Alessandra Amoroso could be interesting.I know she hasnt done a lot this year and has faded from view a bit but didnt she have a throat operation earlier in the year?.I thought she was back to her best in the Radio Italia concert below.Surely she must be at SR next year having missed out so often?

She's one of the few new young record-selling artists who's never been to Sanremo; she was there only once as a guest appearance with Emma, if I'm not mistaken. She sold so much with her albums tat she never felt the need to risk her career in a competition (same story as always, really big artists don't go to Sanremo).

Yes, she was, when they had a night on Sanremo where a song becomes a duet (Emma & Alessandra - Non è l'inferno).

Alessandra has been twice in Sanremo, once in 2010 to duet with Valerio Scanu and the second time in 2012 to duet with Emma Marrone, so basically a special guest, but actually never been an effective contestant in our Festival.

Talking about the decision to move the Eurovision final from Rai 2 to Rai 1, this could be a double edged weapon. I genuinely think that the great ratings results of 2015 in ::it have arrived thanks to a mix of Il Volo and Conchita Wurst and this means that it could be an exception hard to reach again the next year.

Now we have more pressure on the Eurovision 'cause Rai 1 "couldn't accept" the ratings described as a success on Rai 2.

But we also have to analyze that in these weeks the saturday show of Rai 1 (Ti lascio una canzone, that we used as our national final for the Junior Eurovision, and it's at its eighth edition) is collecting a series of bad results (after four live shows the average is like 3.322.000 viewers and the Eurovision final on Rai 2 on May reached 3.292.000) and constantly losing against the concurrent show on Canale 5.

Looking at the ratings of the last week on Rai 1:

Monday - Il Giovane Montalbano (fiction) 5.143.000 al 20.65%
Tuesday - Provaci ancora prof (fiction) 4.833.000 18.58%
Wednesday - Passione sinistra (movie) 2.789.000 11.22%
Thursday - Provaci ancora prof (fiction) 5.471.000 22.00%
Friday - Tale e Quale Show (Your Face Sounds Familiar) 5.195.000 22.84%
Saturday - Ti lascio una canzone (a sort of talent show for kids) 3.767.000 17.36%

Looking at the ratings of the last week of the concurrent channel Canale 5:

Monday - Un boss in salotto (movie) 3.890.000 15.82%
Tuesday - L'onore e il rispetto (fiction) 3.673.000 14.60%
Wednesday - Squadra antimafia (fiction) 4.190.000 18.7%
Thursday - Grande Fratello (Big Brother) 3.380.000 18.00%
Friday - Il Segreto (soap opera) 3.676.000 14.89%
Saturday - Tu si que vales (talent show similar to Got Talent) 4.814.000 23.10%

The gran final of the Eurovision 2016 will fight for sure with one of the live shows of Amici di Maria De Filippi, our most famous talent show. The fifhteenth edition will begin in the next weeks and will go on until the end of May. The last year Amici had an average of 5.111.000 viewers (24,88%). They debuted with 5.514.000 (25,78%), while the gran final reached 6.536.000 (34,20%), as you can see a dangerous enemy for our beloved european show!

Krishoes,Amici di Maria De Filippi,Is Alessandra Amoroso doing it this year?.If not Conti will talk her into doing Sanremo and her big family will tune into ESC instead once she wins i hope 8-),The fact ESC is going to Rai1 means the pressure is really on as well.Last year he delivered (for me) the best SR in 20 years with a very contemporary Campioni section.That should mean other top artists are more likely to do SR next year.It will be very hard for Conti to have as strong a year of course (top 5 this year were world class),but he is sure to try.
Rai1 for ESC also means they need a big star to win SR and go to Sweden,someone who can pull the viewers in.
We will know much more how strong SR is once we see the artists.

No, she won't. The two judges who will captain the teams during the evening phase of the programme are Emma Marrone and Elisa (like the last edition).


If not Conti will talk her into doing Sanremo and her big family will tune into ESC instead once she wins i hope

I think that sometimes we'll see Alessandra in Sanremo. I don't know if 2016 will be her year 'cause she always released her albums without being a participant in our festival and she sold lots of copies for each album. You know, usually italian artists use Sanremo to gain popularity if they are not "big stars" yet or to relaunch their career, so at the moment it seems that Alessandra doesn't need Sanremo, but everything could happen.

For Krishoes....Amici in Italy is one of most talent show in Iotaly...trouble that it have this success for 2 points.

1. Every year there are 2/3 artist or group that became teenager's idol (this year Kolors, last Dear Jack) and every year there is a new idol for this crowd.
2.Since 2012 there is also a one of biggest Italian radio (RTL 102.5) that have interest in Amici and pump in heavy rotation their songs (example this year "Everytime" became a superhit because RTL 102.5 broadcasted for 5/6 a day...for 6 Italians' milion.

For Sucof...Yep!!!!

Yeah and if we add that since a couple of years RTL 102.5 hires the contestants from Amici for their own label we have a clear picture of the situation...

Guisy Ferreri looks like she will have a new album out next year.After her big hit with Baby K this summer she might be on Conti's list.I thought "Ti porto a cena con me" was probably the best song in 14 and better than Contravento that won,but Arisa's delivery was/is world class.I doubt Guisy will trouble the podium,but i think her or Dolcenera are likely to be in the Campioni.

I agree with you, it's very likely that Giusy will take part in next Sanremo and, given this summer's success, she will be heavily boosted by her label. Dolcenera is doing well with her new album but don't forget she wasn't chosen by Conti last year, and the album was ready.

Yes very true.Like you i think Guisy is very likely and deserves it.Sony will want to keep pushing her.The key for me though is if their best artist enters.Alessandra Amoroso.I know she doesnt need to do SR and Sony might not want to risk it.She might not be jury bait like Malika,or as sweet as Arisa,but live she is very special.If she did go for it,with a great song i think she would be favourite.I guess the worry for her and Sony though would be if she didnt make the podium.With RAI pushing ESC though they will be praying a big star wins SR.Alessandra would make them happy i expect.Roll on the names :)

That you're between the names of the classic listone of hypothetical participants in San Remo 2016.
Answer: at the moment I have no answers to give. I have just closed the tour of shines, that was beautiful, able to give me great satisfaction, but also exhausting. In the while I kept continuously to write, and there are also songs that could become songs to be submitted to the festival, but nothing is clear.

So she has been writing/doing songs that she thinks might be good enough to submit for SR.Very very rare performers come back the next year though.She wont have an album to promote so Warner probably wont want her there.Unless Conti really wants her.

Basically there aren't big changements. These are the rules of the CAMPIONI SECTION:

- 18 singers this year

- The first 9 singers will present their songs during the 1st night and they will be judged by the televote (50%) and the press center (50%)
- The other 9 singers will present their songs during the 2nd night and they will be judged by the televote (50%) and the press center (50%)
- After the first two nights we'll have a provisional ranking of the 18 songs

- The 18 singers will sing a cover of a famous italian song during the 3rd night, but this has nothing to do with the "real" contest

- The 18 singers will sing again their songs during the 4th night and they will be judged by the televote (40%), the experts jury (30%) and a "popular jury" (30%)
- After the 4th night we'll have a definitive ranking of the 18 songs (created joining the votes of the first two nights and the votes of the fourth night, 50/50). The bottom 5 will be eliminated, while 13 songs will go through the final
- One of the eliminated songs will be saved only by the televote and we'll know who is the 14th finalist at the beginning of the final

- The 14 finalists will sing again their songs during the 5th night and they will be judged by the televote (40%), the experts jury (30%) and a "popular jury" (30%)
- The top 3 will sing again their songs and they will be judged once again by the televote (40%), the experts jury (30%) and a "popular jury" (30%), the most voted will win

what is the argument for having a popular jury?

In italian we call it "giuria demoscopica", I don't know how to translate it in the perfect way in english. Before the invention of the televote, we already had this "giuria demoscopica" in Saremo, that I called "popular jury". It's formed from people recruited in every italian region who bought cds and have been to live concerts in the last months.

So they made this difference between the televote and the "popular jury", formed (they say, at least) from people who are not "experts" but... a little more expert than the people at home. I hope I explained it in the right way :D

hunty73
20th October 2015, 16:06
The way i see it is the "popular jury" makes it more likely the televote winner wins.The splits also make sure the jury winner (like Malika) make the last 3/podium.

Televoters get their winner,jury gets the highest quality onto the podium.Pretty fair and good system id say.

That seems like a nice concept except for the domination of juries. Even 50% televote doesn't seem satisfying and they take the control from televote almost completely. It is up to juries for best chance. The point of TV shows should aim on the attention of viewers imo.

I actually think that this is the best concept 'cause sadly singers who come from the talent shows have a great advantage in the televote and their fans are used to it, so we need the presence of more juries to create a sort of balance.

And about the TV shows and the attention of viewers, Sanremo could be a particular case 'cause it doesn't have this problem. Even when there wasn't the televote and people had any decision about the winners, our festival always had the biggest ratings of the year.

The problem of the televote has been created when talent show singers like Marco Carta and Valerio Scanu entered the competition to win with the power of televote. If the televote was equal, I would give 100% to it, but the fact that we have some singers from talent shows and other singers actually popular but without a mass of televoters creates big gap.

When you have the list of participants you can suddenly predict who will have the biggest percentage in the televote.

As already said, last year it was the same: 40% televote, 30% experts jury, 30% "popular jury". While in 2013 and 2014 was 50/50 (televote/experts jury).

Actually, all the rules are the same, the only exception is the number of participants (last year 16, then became 20) and the fact that we'll have a saved song among 5 eliminated ones.

I don't think they didn't want that scenario. Il Volo entered Sanremo to win and Rai has been actually glad 'cause they are a project born in Rai, through "Ti lascio una canzone" :D

I thought the SR result this year through the 40/30/30 system was very fair.It delivered the right top 5 for me.From a personal point id of rather seen Malika Ayane or Annalisa win, but Il Volo served up a televote powerhouse.I thought Malika Ayane gave easily the best delivery and song and the jury would have her top.They did and even with a low televote she made the podium/top3.Nek,Annalisa and Chiara all did well with the juries and televoters (rightly) and filled the other top spots.
So the voting system and contemporary line up gave a world class top 5 and delivered the ESC televote winner.Id say that was a system to stick with.
I do think 15 was a very strong SR though.From an outsider to Italy it was the strongest iv have seen for a long time.
The key question for next year is can Conti get a line up as strong?.With RAI moving ESC up to RAI1 maybe they would be happy with a slightly weaker SR next year,but one that delivers a win for a big Italian star to boost the interest in ESC?.

I know Alessandra Amoroso has gone to Latin America promoting at the moment and she doesnt need to do SR,but she has the class to win if she enters,

If Sister Cristina wins a Sanremo im entering next year.The juries will make 100% certain she doesnt trouble the podium.Loredana Errore could be possible.Sony might be looking to re-launch her career.She drifted away after the success of "Pioggia di comete".I also think Sony would want to get Guisy Ferreri back to SR if they can to push her after the success of Roma-Bangkok.I dont think we will get a featuring Baby-K though:lol:
Warner had most of their big artists in the last few years so i have no idea who they will be pushing this year.

Sister Cristina (yes, her...) has made a statement in which she'd like to take part in Sanremo - but doesn't 100% like Eurovision concept. (Anyway, seems that she's in the need of a comeback, she didn't really do the breakthrough after The Voice...)

Meh. Meh. Meh. If she goes to SR, I also want Immanuel Casto in. Otherwise I'm going to blow out RAI. Are we a laic and secular country or not? She can't even sing.

She doesn't seem to be very consistent in her views of concepts in all of those festivals/formats she has taken/wants to take part in.
Or is it something else that she doesn't like about the ESC?

I suppose to some concept becomes about reputation and how things feel and appear. The whole mood and atmosphere of the event in question. They may technically share the same goal in mind but their execution feel light years apart. That's all I can think of because while they may all seem the same on the outside they are different in other ways and that makes a big difference to some xshrug

And frankly I can see why Sanremo would garner more respect from some people then Eurovision. On the outside to the naked eye it lacks the appearance of a tacky circus and presents itself with more seriousness even if its not actually true. Sanremo still looks like its all about the song (again even if its actually not) while Eurovision seems less and less so with every passing year and are barely trying to hide it xscared

In the end The Voice and X-Factor are pretty much the exact same thing but they present themselves in a way that brings completely different opinions.

You have to think about one thing: probably she never saw Eurovision, or at least, she saw probably one (Conchita Wurst?) or two performances. It's easy to tell "Oh yeah, I know it" but the truth could be different... so maybe she has an idea created by the fact that she has some prejudices about it and she tried to explain her point of view in a kind way, don't know if you got what I mean.

As long as they have a manipulated rigged draw and hosts shoving chosen favorites down our throats it will continue to be a joke that you can't take serious xshrug

I never claimed it was more serious in the 2000s. Overall results back then left ALOT to be desired (but the winners where pretty deserving) most of the time but they happened fairly and naturally even if you can't admit that. The only thing their serious about now is making sure they get the result they want to happen regardless of what everyone else thinks. There still a lot of crap today, just a different kind.

Yes.And also she has had a throat operation and is singing really well now,i thought her Radio Italia performance this year was fantastic.Plus she has spent a lot of time in South America and Spain gaining international fans.Sony see her as an international artist thats for sure,more so than Emma.

Amoroso would surely be an interesting possibility - she never took part and it would really be curious to see how her (big) fanbase would react.

He did a good job, but he was really sly to "pretend" it was contemporary. He made very safe choices. If he really wanted to make it modern, he would have accepted the song that Dolcenera presented last year, and that Immanuel Casto and Romina Falconi have presented him for 2016, but he has already refused and this has NOT been for a musical reason. Well, we still have time. But he's definitely a conservative, despite the good results

There are some persistent rumours about il Cile, Negrita, Dolcenera, Max Gazzè, Luca Barbarossa and Paola Turci.

They have records currently on sale or ready to be published (and this is the main basis to predict who's going to SR during winter).

I think Alessandra would be a a huge contender for the podium unless the jury turned their nose's up at her.Arisa could do the double as well.She won a very weak year,but was 2nd in a very strong year.La Notte was a wonderful song.Arisa sounds like a mouse,but then floors you with her amazing voice.I get the feeling RAI really need a big star winning with ESC going to RAI1.Conti will know he cant risk a poor result.Roll on Sunday and the Campioni,

If it's an album, and if it's in Sanremo dates, then we can say that she's in. Otherwise, she won't be in.

I think you might be right on Francesca.Her career seems to be slowly sliding a bit so a SR would be seen as a boost.With Giusy Ferreri looking out Sony might really want Alessandra in.No doubt Conti would want her if he could get her in.

Two days before the announcement from Carlo Conti.

Everything is (still) possible, rumours are on about names I like and names which belong to the Dark Side of the Force...

We can consider Alessandra Amoroso OUT of any Sanremo&Eurovision talk for this year in a nearly official way.

She will release her album on 15h Jan 2016, with some live concerts in Milan and Rome in May.

Italy loses a candidate. Now I'm really starting to fear a name I would never want there. And which I don't even want to let you all know.

Yes looks like she wont the there.Im starting to get a bit worried now that this year is going to be very poor.Still, Nali sent in a song so there is still a small amount of hope for me ;).At this rate Arisa will win again,,,or who is this terrible artist you fear might be at the Ariston :o

I don't name him. If some Italians are still brave enough to use his name... he's basically the one who wrote the Italian song for Junior Eurovision 2015.

Italians hate HER. But some Italians (and this is the fact which worries me) do love him.

Anyway, I'm quite confident that we won't need to be represented by this... person... at Eurovision.

If so, I know many people who would really be in trouble about supporting Italy. And I'm talking about Italians.

I'm also Italian (eventhough I was born and raised in Croatia), but that doesn't mean I support everything Italy sends. This year I hated "Grande Amore" (and I still hate it) and there was nothing to make me support that song. But let's wait Sunday and Conti's announcement, can we?

Well, as Italians born and raised in Italy we would like to support our country whatever it sends :lol: (and actually I supported Italy since 2011 'cause I liked all of our entries for different reasons), so I xpray Gigi D'Alessio and his wife won't represent us xcheer

Don't worry, they won’t and for many reasons:
1. Italians hate Tatangelo, either she sends a masterpiece or a shit and there's nothing, not even d'Alessio who would change their mind
2. The other rumoured singers have also a fanbase.
3. I can't remember the third reason, but I think I made my point. :P

Ah, and goodbye to Fabrizio Moro - who adds himself to the list of those who WON'T take part. This list includes Alessandra Amoroso, Chiara and Giusy Ferreri (not mentioning nearly all of the participants from 2015 except for Annalisa who is still on some rumours, alone or with Marco Carta, and Dear Jack with their new vocalist Leiner Riflessi - and their FORMER vocalist Alessio Bernabei might compete too)

Ok, I say it here and I say it once: I really have NO interest WHATSOEVER in having Dear Jack in the competition. I had any last year and I surely don't wish to see them split in two possible free slots in 2016! That's a nightmare :lol::lol:

No D'Alessio, no Atzei -> GOOD NEWS.

Of my 5 Euronames, 4 are there - and they're all women - Arisa, Noemi, Dolcenera and Francesca Michielin.

Zero Assoluto are a complete surprise - and I think they're back to win the whole thing.

I like them but I would seriously warn Italians NOT to choose them - Elio e le Storie Tese. In my opinion, their message can perfectly be understood from Italians, but the same message might get lost in Europe.
