As Italy’s Sanremo Festival 2020 draws ever nearer, more and more details begin to drop. At a press conference on 14 January, the competition’s host and artistic director Amadeus revealed the line-up of guests performers for the show’s five-night run.

It’s quite literally a roll call of some of the biggest names in Italian and international music. The list includes British-Kosovar popstar Dua Lipa, Scottish crooner Lewis Capaldi and Eurovision 2014’s Emma Marrone.

Actor and director Roberto Benigni will also be on stage. He is widely known for co-writing, directing and starring in the 1997 film Life is Beautiful, for which he won the Academy Awards for Best Actor. He recently returned to the cinema in the most recent re-adaptation of Pinocchio, a fantasy film co-written and directed by Matteo Garrone.

There is space also for a couple who made both the national and international audiences dream a lot with their love stories in music. Al Bano and Romina Power, until a few days ago considered possible competitors, will instead be guests. They previously competed at Eurovision 1976 and 1985

Finally, Tiziano Ferro. The internationally known Italian singer will be next to Amadeus every evening. It is not yet known if he will also take part in the contest as co-host, or he will just sing songs from his repertoire and famous covers.

His latest album Accetto miracoli is currently topping the FIMI Italian Albums Charts for a third week in a row.

Other possible names that are yet to be confirmed include pianist Giovanni Allevi, rocker Gianna Nannini and bluesman Zucchero Fornaciari.

Dua Lipa is my favorite international singer of the moment. Perhaps she’ll make me watch Sanremo ? Hope she’ll perform “Don’t start now”.
Quite happy to see Lewis Capaldi and Mika too!

Actually, Dua Lipa would’ve been 100% better than Madonna as the interval act of esc 2019.

Camila Cabello is a queen and you all have to bow
