It’s the fourth night of the long-lasting Sanremo Music Festival. The third live episode collected over 9,836,000 million viewers and an audience share of 54.5%, the best result since 1997!— and the competition is really getting going.

Friday’s show — hosted by Amadeus with the support of Rosario Fiorello, Antonella Clerici and Francesca Sofia Novello — was inaugurated by the unveiling of the ranking of the first three evenings.

The votes of the demoscopic poll on Tuesday and Wednesday were added to those of the orchestra, which voted on Thursday in the evening dedicated to covers.

Provisional ranking based on the first three nights

  1. Francesco Gabbani with “Viceversa”
  2. Le Vibrazioni with “Dov’è”
  3. Piero Pelù with “Gigante”
  4. Tosca with “Ho amato tutto”
  5. Pinguini Tattici Nucleari with “Ringo Starr”
  6. Diodato with “Fai rumore”
  7. Elodie with “Andromeda”
  8. Marco Masini with “Il confronto”
  9. Irene Grandi with “Finalmente io”
  10. Michele Zarrillo with “Nell’estasi o nel fango”
  11. Levante with “Tikibombom”
  12. Anastasio with “Rosso di rabbia”
  13. Alberto Urso with “Il sole ad Est”
  14. Raphael Gualazzi with “Carioca”
  15. Paolo Jannacci with “Voglio parlarti adesso”
  16. Enrico Nigiotti with “Baciami adesso”
  17. Giordana Angi with “Come mia madre”
  18. Achille Lauro with “Me ne frego”
  19. Rita Pavone wth “Niente (Resilienza 74)”
  20. Rancore with “Eden”
  21. Riki with “Lo sappiamo entrambi”
  22. Elettra Lamborghini with “Musica (E il resto scompare)”
  23. Junior Cally with “No grazie”
  24. Bugo e Morgan with “Sincero”

Tonight the 24 contestants — the names from which Italy’s Eurovision 2020 artist will be chosen — performed their entries to the viewers for the second time. The performances were this time judged by accredited journalists, who voted for their favourites from the press room.

Except for the fact that the performances were actually 23. Towards the end of the program, at 2am, Morgan and Bugo, competing with “Sincero”, were the protagonists of a cringe-inducing scene that will remain in the history of the Festival.

Morgan changed the lyrics of their song, probably without communicating it to his colleague. In the new verse, he included references to yesterday’s cover night, in which the two had placed last and had received fierce criticism from the press and spectators for a performance on the edge of grotesque.

Bugo felt insulted and left the stage in the middle of the song and refused to perform. This forced the host and artistic director Amadeus and the Festival organization to disqualify the duo and their entry. Therefore at the end of the evening, a ranking of only 23 songs was shown.

Sanremo 2020 fourth night

Press jury ranking

  1. Diodato with “Fai rumore”
  2. Francesco Gabbani with “Viceversa”
  3. Pinguini Tattici Nucleari with “Ringo Starr”
  4. Le Vibrazioni with “Dov’è”
  5. Piero Pelù with “Gigante”
  6. Tosca with “Ho amato tutto”
  7. Rancore with “Eden”
  8. Elodie with “Andromeda”
  9. Achille Lauro with “Me ne frego”
  10. Irene Grandi with “Finalmente io”
  11. Anastasio with “Rosso di rabbia”
  12. Raphael Gualazzi with “Carioca”
  13. Paolo Jannacci with “Voglio parlarti adesso”
  14. Rita Pavone with “Niente (Resilienza 74)”
  15. Levante with “Tikibombom”
  16. Marco Masini with “Il confronto”
  17. Junior Cally with “No grazie”
  18. Elettra Lamborghini with “Musica (E il resto scompare)”
  19. Giordana Angi with “Come mia madre”
  20. Michele Zarrillo with “Nell’estasi o nel fango”
  21. Enrico Nigiotti with “Baciami adesso”
  22. Riki with “Lo sappiamo entrambi”
  23. Alberto Urso with “Il sole ad Est”

The fourth evening was also dedicated to the finals of the Newcomers category. If your favourite is among those singers, you’ll be disappointed since the next Italian Eurovision representative is going to be chosen only among the Campioni names.

X Factor 12 star Leo Gassmann with “Vai bene così” slayed the competitors and won the coveted trophy. Sixteen-year-old Tecla Insolia finished second singing “8 marzo“.

The pair defeated Fasma with “Per sentirmi vivo” and Marco Sentieri with “Billy Blu” in the preliminary round broadcast at the beginning of the live show.

The band Eugenio in Via di Gioia has been awarded with the Critic’s Prize for their entry “Tsunami“.

We wish each of them a shining career and who knows — maybe you’ll see one of them in the top category in 2021.

As always, a never-ending list of guest performers caught viewers’ attention. Tiziano Ferro went on to sing his repertoire, presenting “L’ultima notte al mondo”, “Ti scatterò una foto” and “L’amore è una cosa semplice”.

British pop star of Kosovar heritage Dua Lipa made a brief appearance to dance and sing her latest hit “Don’t start now”, while Italian trapper Ghali performed “Cara Italia”, “Wily Wily”, “Boogieman” and “Good times”.

Towards the end of the evening, rocker Gianna Nannini presented “Motivo” with Coez and a medley of “Ragazzo dell’Europa”, “Meravigliosa creatura” and “Sei nell’anima”.

How will the Sanremo winner be picked?

Voting during the five evenings will occur through different combinations of four methods:

  • Public televoting, carried out via landline, mobile phone, the contest’s official mobile app, and online voting.
  • Press jury voting, expressed by accredited journalists that followed the competition from the Roof Hall at the Ariston Theatre.
  • demoscopic poll, composed by 300 music fans who voted from their homes via an electronic voting system managed by global market research and a consulting firm Ipsos.
  • Orchestra voting, resulting from points assigned by musicians and singers of the Sanremo Music Festival Orchestra.

The four voting systems will have a percentage weight so distributed:

  • First and Second Evening: 100% demoscopic poll
  • Third Evening: 100% orchestra voting
  • Fourth Evening: 100% press jury voting
  • Fifth Evening: 34% public televoting; 33% press jury voting; 33% demoscopic poll

In the final part of the fifth evening, a new rank indicating the first three acts — determined by the percentage of votes obtained in that evening’s vote and those obtained in previous evenings — will be drawn up.

I adore so many of these songs..but Sincero was one of my favourites sad it’s disqualified. Rita, Rafael, Elodie, Diodato and Nuclear Penguins are the ones I’m rooting for…though Elodie would be best for Eurovision

I don’t really like the voting system either but Gabbani did well with press/jury and would do well with Italian televote as well (Spotify, Itunes, YouTube, Social Media support his song). He is doing well across the board

My favourite is Michele Zarrillo but he doesn’t seem to get a lot of support. I think he and his song are SO cool and the cover he did with Fausto Leani on Thursday was nothing short of amazing and he really showed off his stunning vocals. Yet it has like the lowest views on YouTube. Oh well I’ll keep my fingers crossed tonight? Can’t wait for the final tonight (I might need a nap beforehand)!
My top 3 is: 1. Michele Zarrillo, 2. Levante, 3. Elodie.

First of all, setting aside all the drama, which I don’t enjoy at all, I am really grateful for Sanremo, because it’s so diverse and has such good musicians and such great performers, it just makes me happy to discover them and explore what they have done in the past or will do in the future, so first mission accomplished. The ranking is something that will always come second for me. I know who gave me chills over and over again and no result will take that away from me. Having said that, the ranking seems really strange this year.… Read more »

I don’t know where you’re from, but maybe I know what is your problem with Gabbani and his song.
“Viceversa” is one of these songs that is in the tastes of Italians but not so much in the rest of the world. I personally enjoy it, it has really beautiful lyrics and nice music, and I love Francesco’s voice too, but I know it’s a weak song for Eurovision, even though it would be a nice winner for Sanremo.
I think Diodato will win overall, in the end, and for me it’s top10 material for Eurovision too, but let’s see.

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

I never know what it means, if someone says “it’s in the taste of this or that country”. I would presume, that every Italian has his or her own taste, haven’t they? I mean, just ask Pogo, he’s Italian and he doesn’t like Gabbani, either. On the other hand, my five Sanremo favourites are all in the top 7 of Italy’s Spotify charts. And I’m not Italian. So your reasoning doesn’t really convince me.

Eltirat
Guest
Eltirat

Let’s just say that if you grow up in a country, you are exposed to its type of music all the time, since you are born, and it’s easier for you to enjoy it, while someone from outside could find it boring or bad; of course there will be someone who doesn’t like it either from the inside, but in terms of big numbers of people I think it’s right what I say.

Tibor
Guest
Tibor

Sorry, but I don’t know in what musical environment you have grown up. I was exposed to all kinds of music, some of it I grew to like, some of it not so much. We’re living in a multimedia age for quite a while now, we have a lot of possible sources to influence our musical taste. Before the internet, your explanation would have perhaps had some plausibility. But today? I doubt it.

Would be super cool, but no way he’s gonna make it. The demoscopic jury and orchestra put him at the bottom of the scoreboard, and the press didn’t rank him very high either. Sadly the televote won’t overturn the verdict, especially considering that it doesn’t have a big influence this year.

I must be on a different planet than the demiscopic jurors and press, because my Top 4 are tanking…

1. Rita Pavone – “Niente (Resilienza 74)”
2. Rancore – “Eden”
3. Achille Lauro – “Me ne frego”
4. Elodie – “Andromeda”

I love Rita for the attitude and the other three seem incredibly current. I would love to see any of these at Eurovision, but unless the results are a confusing mess like they were last year, doesn’t seem like that’s gonna happen. It’s a shame because they’d be iconic Eurovision entries.

Last year, Mahmood was very low in the ranking and he still won. So Elodie can still make it (I’m veeery positive).

I would be quite happy with Diodato winning. 😉 But I would also like it if Elodie wins. Or Rancore. Or Raphael Gualazzi. I mean, there are several acts I wouldn’t mind. I just have no idea who among them agreed on going to ESC.

While no act in Sanremo is weak, Bugo & Morgan were last on my preliminary list anyway and this kind of behavior will cement that position without remorse.

James
Guest

So looks like my comment got moderated. Basically, sixteen of the 24 acts have agreed to become Italy’s representative in the event they win Sanremo. Among them are Elodie, Rancore, Francesco and Raphael.

I just don’t understand the hype surrounding Gabbani. I simple don’t understand it, his song is not the best… I hope the act for Rotterdam is Elodie, though. The others don’t seem to have such an impact….

Its a shame that Elodie an Rancore can’t get enough love, hopefully with the 3 different voting methods one of them will be in the superfinal…

startaglia

I hope so, but I’m afraid they won’t. Now some people are mad about Elodie because she answered “badly” to one journalist during the Afterfestival. I don’t think she answered that badly though. She wasn’t disrespectful, she just seemed a bit upset. However, that attitude might get some people mad at her and not vote for her. It is very unlikely that she will make it amongst the final 3, which is a shame because she was so good.

This is my prediction for the ranking that will be presented Tomorrow night before the last round of voting that will consist of votes from Televoting (34%), Demoscopic juries (33%), Press (33%). 1) Francesco Gabbani 2) Diodato 3) Pinguini Tattici Nucleari 4) Le Vibrazioni 5) Piero Pelù 6) Tosca 7) Elodie 8) Irene Grandi 9) Rancore 10) Achille Lauro Not sure about the order of the last three, tho… The televoting will not have much impact I guess and I doubt the other two voting groups will change their opinions, so I guess only Irene Grandi is at risk for… Read more »

Happy for Diodato, he was even better tonight. It seems the top 3 of tonight will be in the superfinal, unless one of them fails with the televote. Elodie improved a lot from her last performance, her body language was much more confident. Unfortunately she’ll need a huge support from the televote to make it. Rancore and Anastasio need not just the televote, but also much better demoscopic result this time. While Pelù, La Vibrazione and Tosca were around the top in every voting so far… will the televote push one of them to the final round? How famous are… Read more »

Sanscemo

All three are well known (Tosca maybe less because she has never been a mainstream singer, even if she still won a Festival), they haven’t sold half a record for a long time tho. I don’t think they’ll get many televotes, I’d be very surprised if they did. I think Gabbani will smash also the televote, or at least get a very respectable result there, he’s getting tons of views and likes on social media, it seems people are behind him.

Sabrina
Guest
Sabrina

Gabbani in the top 3 seems like the safest bet of all. Do you think he would do Eurovision again? And how famous are Diodato and PTN?

Giolo
Guest
Giolo

Tosca has a very emotional song and is not to be understimated, so I think and hope she will get a good televoting score, but I agree that she will still be in the 4th-6th zone, no superfinal for her…

Lourdes

So happy for Diodato!! He’s my personal winner, even though I think Elodie is more suitable for Eurovision. Either would be an excellent choice.

Sabrina
Guest
Sabrina

I agree. A superfinal with Diodato, Elodi and Pinguini would be my pick. But it’s hard to stop Gabbani. And I can’t blame the Italians, Francesco is very charming. But I think there’s a reasonable chance he won’t like to do Eurovision again so soon.

Skiwalko

It’s such a shame, I actually loved Morgan & Bugo’s song and style, they were one of my favourite acts. But if you can’t be a good loser, you cannot be a good winner, Morgan’s behaviour was just unacceptable. I don’t know if that was supposed to be a joke or a desperate attempt to get some attention, but either way it was in a very poor taste.

Voxtaylor

I completely agree. I suppose if you’re a solo act you have every right to act immature on stage, but as one half of a duo you really have to be a team player.

Good luck winning Eurovision with “Le Vibrazioni” or “Piero Pelù”. Eurofan favourites (Levante, Elodie) will struggle hard to reach the superfinal at this point, and they probably won’t make it. Among the contenders for the victory, the most decent option seems to be Diodato. Gabbani I’m sorry, but his song is weak.

Briekimchi

Worryingly, the press jury seems to overrate the same songs that were already high up in the rankings from the previous three nights. Gabbani is obviously going to be in the top three but he might not have any genuine contenders with him if this keeps up.

Pinguini could very well end up there with him if they do as well tomorrow as they have the past three days. The two were tied in the odds all night

Hope you’re right! I’m just worried that I’m consistently seeing Le Vibrazioni and Piero up there.
They’re fine entries but they really should be in the 15-20 range, not challenging for the Lion.

I think that would be a huge upset if either of them won because I doubt they’ll top the televote.

The televote just matters so little when it shouldn’t…

Giolo
Guest
Giolo

Even if they reach they superfinal (and I think only one of them could eventually make it), it will be impossible to win and would be a sure 3rd place like Annalisa 2 years ago (unfortunately). I guess it will be a race between Gabbani and Pinguini at the end, but i don’t who public will choose, but I guess that PNT should get a really high score to beat Gabbani, since demoscopic juries and press loves him more.

Morgan changed the lyrics to attack Bugo.
His lyrics were something like: “You have bad intentions, you’re rude.” “You made a fool of yourself last night.” “You’re here on stage only because of me.”
Morgan is known for being a very controversial figure, but this seems strange.
This drama is such a shame..

Yes, you’re right! The press has big weight on the final results (before the super final), so it’s really likely we will have Gabbani and PNT in top 2 and Diodato 3rd (I guess televoters wouldn’t let him win), unless they don’t change their mind…
It’s still possible that Le Vibrazioni and Pelù or even Tosca take the place of Diodato in top 3, but it depends on their televoting scores

Ok, Sabina, not everyone has the same taste, and I’ve read the lyrics to Viceversa, and I must say they are sloppily made and cringeworthy. Francesco’s performing style is grating and over-the-top, like a less-talented version of Salvador Sobral with his facial expressions. I will never understand his hype. On the other hand, Andromeda is current, fresh, and has a 2020 sound, which is something Sanremo sorely needs, even if they don’t care about Eurovision. Music evolves, and Sanremo is a music festival, so it should evolve with it. The lyrics in Andromeda are not necessarily outstanding, I will give… Read more »

I dunno if I’m right, but in Italy you focused so much in lyrics rather than rhythm of songs, don’t you focus? Because it’s common italians say “sente le parole della canzone” haha and it’s known that they talk about life and love and a very “poetic” and “mellow” way. I tell that because here in Latin America we got so much italian influence in music like Nicola di Bari, Al Bano and Romina Power, Umberto Tozzi, Franco Simone, Salvatore Adamo (even he’s belgian haha), Rita Pavone and when I was a kid Laura Paussini, Eros Ramazzotti, Nek, Gianluca Grignani,… Read more »
