Sanremo Festival continues with elegancy and full of entartainment. The third evening of the Sanremo Festival international stars, such as Sergio Dalma, have been on stage at the Teatro Ariston chanting Italian songs that have been hits in various languages and countries around the globe.
It was also an opportunity for the four acts eliminated from the ‘Big’ section last night to be reinstated to proceedings via a public phone vote.
The international artists, including Sergio Dalma and Noa, sung the songs in duets with the acts from the ‘Big’ Section. After each had sung the Italian song, the guest sung one of their own songs. The combinations were:
Sanremo Festival 2012 : Italian songs and world hits
Nina Zilli e Skye (Morcheeba)– Never Never Never (Grande, Grande,Grande – Mina)
Samuele Bersani e Goran Bregović – My Sweet Romagna (Romagna Mia – Secondo Casadei)
Dolcenera e Professor Green – My Life Is Mine (Vita Spericolata – Vasco Rossi)
Pierdavide Carone con Lucio Dalla e Mads Langer – With All My Heart And Soul (Anema e Core – Tito Schipa)
Irene Fornaciari, Brian May feat. Kerry Ellis – I (Who Have Nothing) (Uno dei Tanti – Joe Sentieri)
Emma e Gary Go – If Paradise Is Half as Nice (Il Paradiso – La Ragazza 77 and Patty Pravo)

Noemi e Sarah Jane Morris – To Feel in Love (Amarsi un Po’ – Lucio Battisti)
Francesco Renga e Sergio Dalma – El mundo (Il Mondo – Jimmy Fontana)
Arisa e Josè Feliciano – Que serà (Che Sarà – José Feliciano)
Chiara Civello e Shaggy – You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me (Io che non Vivo (Senza Te) – Pino Donaggio)
Gigi D’Alessio con Loredana Berté e Macy Gray – Flame (Almeno Tu nell’Universo – Mia Martini)
Eugenio Finardi e Noa – Surrender (Torna a Surriento – Mario Massa)
Marlene Kuntz e Patti Smith – The World Became the World (Impressioni di Settembre – Premiata Forneria Marconi)
After an evening of song and dance at SanRemo festival, the four acts hoping to have a second chance and dreading permanent rejection were given the opportunity to perform again. Two would be singing for the last time. In the firing line were:
Pierdavide Carone e Lucio Dalla – Nanì
Irene Fornaciari – Grande Mistero
Gigi D’Alessio e Loredana Bertè – Respirare
Marlene Kuntz – Canzone per un Figlio
After the phone lines had been shut down and the votes had been counted, Irene Fornaciari and Marlene Kuntz said that they were the unlucky ones who had been eliminated from the Sanremo festival for good. Pierdavide Carone and Lucio Dalla and Gigi D’Alessio and Loredana Bertè (much to the delight of the audience) survive to lose another day.
Sanremo Festival : Italy’s most prestigious festival rolls on for 62nd time
The first night of 62nd edition of the Sanremo Festival saw actually no acts eliminated as it was planned. The most prestigious festival in Italy held in the Ariston theatre kicked-off on Rai Uno. The Eurovision Song Contest inherited the concept of Sanremo as Italy will participate again in Europe’s favourite show to be held in Baku.
In the first show the fourteen artists who are competing in the established category performed their songs but none of the acts were eliminated because there was a technical problem in the voting system used by an approximately 300 jury member. Originally two acts had to be eliminated. This means that instead of eliminating two singers, the second show will eliminate four artists.
Sanremo Festival gateway to Eurovision Song Contest 2012
The popular extravaganza show opened by Luca and Paolo who did a funny interpretation of one of the songs by I Pooh. Luca and Paolo hosted last year’s Sanremo. The main host, Gianni Morandi declared the 62nd edition open while the famous Italian singer Adriano Celentano was the special guest of the first show. Elisabetta Canalis and Belen Rodriguez joined him on stage. The two beauties played the role of hosts in last year’s festival. Sanremo festival ends next Saturday and all artists perform live while being accompanied by a live orchestra.
Tomorrow evening will see two of the remaining twelve songs voted out of the SanRemo festival. It is also the night of the Sanremosocial final, where the four acts left will sing for victory. It is worth remembering that last year’s winner of this section of the Sanremo festival, Raphael Gualazzi, was chosen to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest. It is quite possible that whoever is crowned winner of Sanremosocial will be asked to go to Eurovision Song Contest in Baku this May.
