After a record first night — 11,374,000 viewers and an audience share of 50.4%, the best result of the last 12 years — Sanremo 2017 continued on with its Wednesday night show.
The remaining 11 Campioni contestants — the big names from which Italy’s Eurovision 2017 artist will be chosen — performed their entries to the viewers for the very first time, just like yesterday.
The live show started with the performances of half of the Nuove Proposte, the category dedicated to newcomers, judged by televote (50%) and the press center (50%).
And these are the results: Francesco Guasti with “Universo” and Leonardo Lamacchia with “Ciò che resta” went to the final, while Marianne Mirage with “Le canzoni fanno male” and Braschi with “Nel mare ci sono i coccodrilli” have been eliminated.
During the evening we were treated to guest performances from Italian pop singer and Sanremo 1995 winner Giorgia and English superstar Robbie Williams — who presented their singles “Vanità” and “Love my life“. Scottish rock band Biffy Clyro and American-Canadian actor Keanu Reeves took to the stage as well and entertained the audience.
Then after four hours of music moments, random appearances on stage and comedy sketches, the results of the Campioni category were revealed in random order. But unlike yesterday, none of your big favourites to win were among the temporarily eliminated acts, with the Wiwi readers’ favourites qualifying to the next round.
SANREMO’S SECOND NIGHT
- Chiara – “Nessun posto è casa mia“
- Francesco Gabbani – “Occidentali’s Karma“
- Gigi D’Alessio – “La prima stella“
- Marco Masini – “Spostato di un secondo“
- Michele Bravi – “Il diario degli errori“
- Michele Zarrillo – “Mani nelle mani“
- Paola Turci – “Fatti bella per te“
- Sergio Sylvestre – “Con te“
- Bianca Atzei – “Ora esisti solo tu“
- Nesli & Alice Paba – “Do retta a te“
- Raige & Giulia Luzi – “Togliamoci la voglia“
The three provisionally eliminated artists will sing their entries again tomorrow, together with the three other temporarily eliminated acts from Tuesday’s show.
Four of them will go to the semi, while two acts will definitely say Arrivederci to the competition. Who is going to miss the chance to win the contest?
The third evening of Sanremo is traditionally “cover night“. The 16 Campioni participants — who have placed in the top 8 in the first two live shows — will perform their own version of an existing hit single.
