It’s the long-running Italian song contest that entered its 68th year on Tuesday. And it’s almost time for Italy to crown its next Sanremo champion.
While the winner of Sanremo isn’t guaranteed to be Italy’s next Eurovision representative, we still want to know who you think should follow in Francesco Gabbani’s footsteps. Annalisa was your pre-contest favourite, but now that you’ve heard the songs, plus seen the initial rankings from the demoscopic poll on Tuesday and press jury on Wednesday and Thursday, have your opinions changed?
With the alterations of the rules for 2018 meaning there have been no eliminations during the week of the contest (and no surprise disqualifications), this gives you a total of 20 acts to choose from.
You can click on the song titles below to hear each song, and then vote in our poll below. As usual, you can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once. This will be a flash poll, as we’ll close it early on Saturday morning just in time for the grand-final — so make sure to get your votes in as soon as possible.
In addition, make sure you comment down below with all your thoughts on this year’s acts!
