There’s no degree of separation and there’s no degree of space between us and Francesca Michielin, Italy’s representative at Eurovision 2016. Our William had the pleasure of chatting with the “No Degree of Separation” singer at Amsterdam’s Eurovision in Concert on Saturday. And can we just say that we’re officially in love with her (and her jumpsuit).

Francesca Michielin at Eurovision in Concert — Interview

The Italian starlet told us all about her feelings on stage, revealing that she’s a “volcano girl” — lava comes out when she sings. That’s true artistry, y’all!

Francesca also explained why she decided to sing part of her entry in English: “My song has got a very beautiful message of sharing love and peace, and I think it’s important that everybody can understand this”.

The 21 year old is well up for the Eurovision challenge, whilst acknowledging that representing Italy after Il Volo “is not simple”. However, last year’s popera stars aren’t her favourite ever Italian representatives. That honour goes to her close friend Marco Mengoni, who’s told her to stay calm in Stockholm.

The conversation soon turned to Sanremo. She came second, but was given the opportunity to represent her country after the winners declined. Finishing second in the world’s longest running TV music festival at such a young age is no mean feat, Francesca knows it and is extremely proud.

The aforementioned lava was released later in the evening, as Francesca delivered a rousing rendition of her Eurovision entry. We can’t wait for the next eruption in May.

My #3 after my first evaluation. When I finish with my 3rd and final evaluation at the first weekend of May, I think she will stay in my top 5.

They ruin song with some english lyricks . She don t have strong live vocal and I don t see Italy in TOP 5 this year.
Male singer had better result 2011. 2 place 2013. 7 place 2015. 3 place male group
Female singer 2012. 9 place 2014. 21 place 2016 ? my prediction from 8 to 12 place thanks to juries.

She was really good in A’ dam, very authentic, and her expression about Lava fits. One of my top5. Good that she doesn t care about last year il voll, that also for me was completely overrated.
