Sanremo 2016 kicked off tonight with a flurry of big voices, amazing songs and special guest appearances from Elton John and Maître Gims. But the main event for Eurovision fans was when ten of the twenty Big Artists performed their original numbers, with the public hearing them for the very first time. Now, after several hours and a lot of waiting, the results have finally been revealed.
Sanremo is very unique in the way the results are calculated. At the end of the show, the hosts revealed the Top 6 acts and the Bottom 4 acts, which were determined by a combination of the tele-vote and the press jury. However, the acts were all revealed in a random order, so we will not know the exact placement for some time. Remember, anything is still possible.
