Italy: Sanremo Music Festival – final (20:40 CET)
The fifth and the final night of the renowned Sanremo Music Festival will be one of the pinnacles of tonight’s national selections. Italy will therefore become the fourth Big 5 country that will name their ambassador in Kyiv.
Sixteen acts will compete to win the crown, and in order to do that, they have to win the favour of both the juries and the public. If for some reason the winner refuses to participate in Eurovision, the public broadcaster RAI will select the Italian entry. Sanremo will run the latest of tonight’s shows, expected to end at around 1:00 in the morning.
Giusy Ferreri was your main favourite for the victory, but she was eliminated in the fourth night of the festival.
End time: 01:00 CET (approximately)
