She’s young. She’s got a big voice. And she’s amassed more than 5 million followers on social media. In short, SHE SLAYS THE PACK HUNNY!

And now Italian superstar Lodovica Comello is set to hit Theatre Ariston for the upcoming Sanremo Music Festival — Italy’s most enduring music festival, which also serves as the country’s Eurovision 2017 selection. Italian fans have already gone crazy for this lil’ girl who could fly to Kiev to represent her nation at Eurovision this May.

The 26-year-old singer is an idol for the younger generation thanks to her role as “Francesca” in the Argentine Disney Channel series, Violetta, which conquered millions of fans in Argentina, Spain, Italy, Poland, Chile, Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay, Venezuela and beyond. She’d definitely get the Disney diaspora vote at Eurovision!

But music is not her only passion. She also proved her talent as a tv host on the last edition of Italia’s Got Talent and Singing in the car, which is based on James Corden’s famous Carpool Karaoke series.

Sanremo will give her a huge opportunity to touch the hearts of grown-up viewers — and possibly the charts — with her entry “Il cielo non mi basta”. A ballad? Something up-tempo? We still don’t know since we won’t be able to hear the competing songs until the first performance on the stage, as required by sanremese tradition. Regardless this chick has got a bright future in front of her.

Carlo Conti — veteran host and artistic director of the historic Italian festival — has said that Lodovica’s song is “bubbly”. She added that it’s “very strong”. We are ready to feel the rhythm, Miss Comello!

Her last single “Non cadiamo mai” is just what you need when you’re feeling blue — a splash of color and energy with powerful lyrics: “We jump and never fallWe are like a city that never stops / Tonight it will seem that this world belongs only to us.

She has already published two albums, “Universo” in 2013 and “Mariposa” in 2015.

Her music, mostly in Spanish, is definitely targeted at a young audience — it’s cheeky, fun, explosive and positive… and we love it.

We feel like we’re tiny groupies already! And we will most definitely cut in line to get close to this diva.

Don’t you feel Eurovision in the air? ‘Cause we DO.

She’d represent something fresh and new for Italy at Eurovision — a singer with an international background who is able to sing it out with strong stage presence and fierce choreography. The girl is a walking music video. A dream is a wish! And we’re wishing on Lodovica…

Is Lodovica ready for a big stage like Eurovision? Yes. She’s already scored the 180-date Violetta En Vivo world tour, which sold more than 6.4 million tickets. And let’s not forget the 35 dates of her first solo European tour Lodo Live 2015. With Lodovica Italy would really hit the nail on the head!

What do you think of Lodovica Comello? Is she the best representative for Italy at the Eurovision 2017? Let us know in the comments box below!

Leave “Violetta” aside. Now we are talking about Lodovica as an artist, not as a Disney girl! “Violetta” is over and she has 2 beautiful albums “Universo” and “Mariposa”. She writes her musing by herself: powerful, touching compositions + talented clear voice! Not a commercial trash! She just needs more popularity among all age of people to admit her talent and remove the “Disney tag”! And Sanremo is a great opportunity for that, and why not Eurovision? 🙂 Good luck, Lodo! You can do this!

IMO she kinda has the same hype as Annalisa did last year. Let’s see if her San Remo entry will actually take her to their contest’s own grand finals first. If she’s lucky then they might choose her like they did with Franceska and Nina Zilli.

She the right age to be a breakout star. Seems many Italian female solo artists don’t get wide recognition until they hit their mid-twenties. Going to be tough going against veteran artists such as Giusy Ferreri, Samuel and Chiara. Samremo usually uses multiple juries along with the public vote, and they always tend to go with the established acts. In 2015, Il Volo won the public vote by such a margin in that their poor showing in the juries didn’t deny them the win. I doubt Lodovica will have the public vote support Il Volo got. It would take an… Read more »

@ Cristian Scarpone – teenager? Preadolescenti semmai. Non penso che qualcuno sopra i 12 anni guardi Violetta…

@Edre I think you’re wrong, the very reason Italy has done so well is because they do send something different, something classy, thanks to Sanremo being your selection process. It gives you a chunk of the vote that usually don’t have any song they like, and it broadens the show’s appeal.

She sounds good. I have never heard of her before, even if I am Spanish and I am not too old (22 yo) xD so maybe she is not THAT famous worldwide, just famous for the little girls who watch that show. Anyways, if the song is good, go ahead! I doubt she will sing in Spanish this time, but I would like that obviously 😛

@ Edre – excuse me? Didn’t our own Il Volo win the televote in 2015 with 366 points, ahead of Sweden which got 279?

She’s definitely the safest choice. I think that what Italy really needs right now is to have a real fan favourite, because even if our results are usually good, we have never had someone really appealing to the ESC public. I would rather like to see Italy topping the fans’ rankings and ending up dead last than not being considered and classifying high, which actually is what usually happens. Even with Il Volo. I still feel Italy’s one of the countries that most eurofans are not really interested about because we always bring songs that are not really made for… Read more »
