Italy’s Sanremo 2015, this year’s edition of the age-old music festival that gave birth to the Eurovision Song Contest, has finally come to an end. The final gave us epic shows, wonderful singers and lots of entertainment. But most importantly, we learned who won the competition, and in effect, who will represent Italy in Eurovision 2015. After the first round of votes, it was narrowed down to Nek, Il Volo, and Malika Ayane. In the end, Il Volo will sing in Vienna!

COMBINED RESULTS

1) Il Volo – Grande Amore

2) Nek – Fatti avanti amore

3) Malika Ayane – Adesso è qui

4) Annalisa – Una finestra tra le stelle

5) Chiara – Straodinario

6) Marco Masini – Che giorno è?

7) Dear Jack – Il mondo esplode tranne noi

8) Gianluca Grignani – Sogni infranti

9) Nina Zilli – Sola

10) Lorenzo Fragola – Siamo uguali

11) Alex Britti – Un attimo importante

12) Irene Grandi – Un vento senza nome

13) Nesli – Buona fortuna amore

14) Bianca Atzei – Il solo al mondo

15) Moreno – Oggi ti parlo così

16) Grazia di Michele and Mauro Coruzzi – Io sono una finestra

Beverly Olson hit the nail on the head and I agree with everything she said. Il Volo is a fabulous group. Anyone who has compared them to Il Divo has not listened to them or watched them. Il Divo has great voices but they are boring to watch, they are too old school. Il Volo is young and vibrant and put so much feeling into their music. Their voices are fabulous seperately and their harmony is undeniably superb. They are wonderful young men who truly care about their fans, they are humble and love what they do. I never listened… Read more »

These young men have proved that they have what it takes. Grande Amore is a wonderful song and they sang it with such emotion. They have fans of all ages; the grandmothers (like me), the 20-30 year olds and the teens. There are not many singers out there that can make that claim! I fully expect them to win it all! They treat others with much respect and are very good to their fans, always going the extra mile.

A mi me gusta Il Volo porque hasta ahora no cantan canciones enfocadas a las drogas y al Sexo como otros artistas lo hacen espero que sigan así

I have listened to Il Volo since they first appeared and continue to be an avid fan; their love of music is their reason for singing. I have seen them grow into fine young men, who not only appreciate music of all kind, they love their family, friends and fans! The continue to learn and grow and their technical knowledge of music is outstanding! Their win was no fluke, it was pure music from the heart, their passion and power for such young men. They are classical pop, 2 tenors and the baritone… 3 voices=1 soul Their fans are growing… Read more »

To riff on a familiar Abraham Lincoln quote: You can please all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot please all the people all the time… Just as there are different flavors of ice cream to please varying palates, there are different genres of music to please the varying tastes of those who listen to it. IL VOLO has millions of fans from all around the world. Their concerts are always sold-out events. Every time they make TV and other appearances, which is often, they garner new fans. They appeal… Read more »

Here’s an English Translation of “Grande Amore”
Very appropriate for the Valentine’s Day winner of Sanremo.
In just over 2 days the original video has had over 2 million views.

Not feeling it..Top 10 maybe due to the group’s popularity, but I think the song is weak.

Fantastic choice. This could reach the top 5.
And I love the Italian language, therefore I’m glad that Italy always sends songs in their native tongue.

Fantastic! Of course it will have to get a eurovision cut, with the verses getting a bit shorter. It mixes a classic Italian song with something new and fresh. I love the operatic chorus. The music is fantastic and Italian, as always, sound really nice. Serious contenders here! My top 12: 1. France: 9.7/10 2. Cyprus: 8.8/10 3. Italy: 8.8/10 4. Malta: 8.6/10 5. Switzerland: 7.8/10 6. The Netherlands: 7.7/10 7. Denmark: 7.1/10 8. Iceland: 6.9/10 9. Georgia: 6.9/10 (awaiting the remastering) 10. Belarus: 6.6/10 11. Albania: 6.6/10 (also awaiting the remastering) 12. FYROM: 6.2/10 We are in for a… Read more »

I don’t like their song! Not my music style! Their voices remind me a little bit like Croatia 2013! I hope they sing an other song in Vienna which sound more modern!

The song is really good, I hope they sing this in Vienna. They also seam very humorous, and that is what this show needs.

Meh!

I like their voices but I don’t really like the song. Not to say that other’s don’t, because I understand why but It doesn’t appeal to me.

That said, they may not even go with Grande Amore. I’d rather see something more upbeat than another god damn ballad this year.

Would love to see this win, glad to finally see a male group with some balls for a change!
On another note, I hope they chose Turin or Milan to host, they are such beautiful cities.

Martin: the official ESC site is reporting that Il Volo have confirmed that they will go to Eurovision. The only thing not confirmed is the song, but they’d be nuts not to go with “Grande Amore”.

Martin Palmer

Have they confirmed they will go to ESC 2015? “In effect” actually meant “has first refusal on entering Eurovision” – they may turn the chance down…

Uhm… It’s not that I don’t like the song, but as an Italian I’m discouraged by living stereotypes representing us again. It seems like we’re stuck into these old-fashioned genres when actually Italian music is finally turning into something more contemporary. Anyway, I don’t know if some (better imo) other artists such as Nek, Malika, Chiara, Nina or Annalisa could do better than this song, while these others would have been good songs but probably not winners, this one is a “love or hate” type of song (as shown in Sanremo too) that someone would probably vote for. Last year… Read more »

At the moment it seems like Italy is the hot favourite to win, but I’m afraid that if they do win they would not host ESC next year, like what they did with this year’s JESC.

Both Nek and Il Volo are well known acts in Latin America and Spain too (I think), so I expect Spain giving Italy 8-12 points this year.

There are a lot of young artists this year, so that is fun.

I am not a fan, perdonami Italia… I just feel like the song doesn’t have a good structure and although their voices are good, it doesn’t make sense for a trio to sing this type of song. I also do not like that the entire song is sung in excessive vibrato.

A fairly good live performance, but to be honest I’m going to have a hard time remembering the song, which doesn’t interest me that much musically.

Italy, at the moment, for me, you’re the winner. So, you better start saving money in order to make the ESC next year, after you refuse the right to host the JESC. The latter price tag was 1-1.5 million euros. The ESC will cost you 20-25 million. 😉

Enjoy saving money. 🙂
