Alessandro Cattelan, Raffaella Carrà

Two weeks ago, Italy won the Eurovision Song Contest for the third time in its history, earning the right to host the 2022 event. Several Italian cities — from Rome to Turin via Sanremo and Milan — have already put themselves forward as potential host city. But a choice from host broadcaster RAI is still months away.

Another important knot that’s yet to unravel? Who will host the show next May.

Italy will face an important challenge to definitively erase the memory of the chaotic 1991 edition, presented by the country’s first two Eurovision winners, Gigliola Cinquetti and Toto Cutugno. They spoke almost entirely in Italian and many of their jokes fell flat for the European audience.

RAI will have to choose one or more hosts who can steer viewers through the show, conduct interviews with the competing artists from the green room and guide the voting procedure entirely in English with some parts in French.

Their options are limited: English is not a widely spoken language in Italy. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t people perfectly capable of hosting the event — and with great professionalism and gusto.

Could Alessandro Cattelan or Raffaella Carrà host Eurovision 2022?

One name has been circulating for years as a possible host of Eurovision: Alessandro Cattelan.

The 41-year-old Italian television and radio host became famous in the early 2000s as a veejay on MTV Italia, presenting programs such as Most Wanted and Total Request Live.

In 2011 he moved to Sky Italia to host X Factor, a program that he stuck with through the fourteenth edition in 2020.

He has also hosted E poi c’è Cattelan, a late-night talk show where he interviewed countless Italian and international showbiz personalities including Ed Sheeran, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Natalie Imbruglia, Andy Garcia and Spike Lee. And all of this in fluent English.

Three months ago Cattelan left Sky to move to RAI, a move that sparked rumours he’d soon land at the Sanremo Music Festival as its next artistic director. But now the Italian broadcaster has to think about Eurovision…and the timing is perfect!

He is, without a doubt, the first person RAI will focus on. Cattelan is managed by LaTarma Management, owned by Marta Donà, who also manages Marco Mengoni, Francesca Michielin and, until a few days ago, Eurovision winners Måneskin.

The rock band, recently interviewed by TV Sorrisi e Canzoni, denied speculation that they’d host the event in 2022, passing the ball to the man who watched them participating in X Factor in 2017.

“Us hosting the contest? No, to each his own, we play music. Better ask Alessandro Cattelan.”

Another important name, which has always been connected to RAI, is that of Raffaella Carrà.

The 77-year-old Italian singer, dancer, television presenter and actress is a popular figure not only in Italy, but also in other parts of Europe and Latin America.

Carrà is a huge fan of the contest. She’s presented various programs in Spain related to the European competition. And in 2008, before Italy had returned to the contest, she had several Eurovision contestants sing on her hit Saturday night program Carràmba! Che fortuna. They included Dima Bilan, Ani Lorak, Simon Mathew and Pirates of the Sea.

Let’s not forget 2011. It was Raffaella herself who provided commentary for the event on Rai2 and she even awarded the Italian points. It was an iconic moment that many fans still remember years later.

As reported by BubinoBlog, the weekly magazine Oggi has revealed that RAI is thinking of having the Italian diva return to Rai1, and have presented her with a number of proposals. Could Eurovision be among them?

Among the other names on the tip of many tongues is Milly Carlucci. Another RAI veteran, she was, for many years, at the helm of Ballando con le stelle, the Italian version of Dancing with the stars. She was recently on air with Il cantante mascherato (The Masked Singer).

A true workaholic, she’s known for the painstaking attention with which she carries out each television project. In addition to Italian, she speaks English, French, Spanish and German.

Italian Eurofans ironically call her the Italian Petra Mede. Perhaps a possible pairing with Alessandro Cattelan will give us “Love, Love, Peace, Peace Part 2”?

I do hope that Toto Cutugno plays some part. It would be great to hear Insieme again on the Eurovision stage. With a big choir, it could be completely awesome. ‘Insieme’ (Together) could even be the motto of the contest next year.

So I have no idea who any of the people mentioned below are, other than previous contestants and Lady Gaga! However, the most successful hosts (Sweden 2016; The Netherlands 2021) are those who have a natural fluidity in English because you get their personality, humour, enjoyment of the event as they present. Those who are good in English but not fully relaxed in English eg Austria 2015 become a bit robotic and that affects the feel of the show. Those who are uncomfortable, eg Ukraine 2017 makes the viewer nervous. So whoever can carry a show in English with a… Read more »

I’m pretty much sure that Italy can manage to find at least three presenters that speak English fluently.

But I have one wish for them to keep LookLab this year too. It was really fun to watch (I still watch some interviews over and over lol). Nikkie did an incredible job, they can invite her for a second round or they can find a local talent to take her position.

I still consider it’s a risk to put in front of 200Mln people in a live show, an actor, who is not used to manage a live event, which includes being able to manage any problem that may happen on the stage or in the show and doesn’t have enough familiarity with such a tight and fast show, where everything is programmed up to the millisecond. A presenter is used to be “live” with people, while an actor not because he is live in front of a camera… Read more »

Well, Alessandro Cattelan seems a very good choice to me. He has quite an accent, but for italian standards (I’m Italian) his English is very good. Raffaella Carrà speaks a pretty decent English too, but I wouldn’t let her do the job all by herself. Still she is a good choice: for years she has been the only one in Italy speaking about the ESC in public and this may be a very good occasion to thank her for that. Finally Michelle Hunziker might be a good choice too to round up the trio. Her English is very good, she… Read more »

Borghi is indeed a very good option too. Very charismatic and his English is accent-free and close to perfection. I just hope RAI makes sure we can prove that we 1. didn’t come back to the competition to disprize it but because it was a mistake to leave, 2. that we can handle a show like this and 3. make that horrible 91 experience forgiven if not forgotten.

Edit: Francesca Michielin also would be a good choice. Also I just remembered that Senhit is actually from Italy and not San Marino, and everybody likes her, so maybe she could be the green room host. Another thing they can do is what they did in 2006 with Maria Menounos, 2018 with Daniela Ruah, and probably many other times where one of the hosts was from the diaspora in the USA, so if all or some of the people I named can’t/don’t want to host, maybe Danny De Vito and/or Lady Gaga would be good options.

I never found the 1991 contest in Rome to be bad. I recently rewatched it as part of Eurovision Again, and I actually thought it was refreshing to see two hosts behaving like 2 normal human beings (instead of like robots just blasting over-rehearsed lines one after the other). Pretty sure Italy can pull off a professional hosting while still preserving authenticity.

Really hoping for the one about Alessandro Cattelan to be true! I’m Italian and right after Måneskin won, my mum and I started wondering who we’d wish to see hosting the competition next year…He’s the only one we were totally sure about from the very first moment. He’s funny, he knows a lot about music, he’s fluent in English (which, as you mentioned, is something that isn’t that common in Italy, unfortunately). We couldn’t wish for more, in my opinion!

Yes, she can…but….I think she can be present only in the final. The two hosts present the two semifinals and Raffaella appears only in the final with the two hosts, after singing at the beginnig. Carrà must be there, as godmother, she is the only italian tv-star that had supported Eurovision , since 2008, and before in Spain, as Cristian Scarpone has written.

Steve Rossi, the only doubt I have regarding Raffaella Carrà’s medley performance is that typically only former ESC participants and former ESC songs are performed on stage. Unless they’re international guests, like Madonna or Timberlake. There have been exceptions, of course. It depends if EBU is OK with that. The other risk, especially in countries that don’t know her like Australia and so on, is that she could be perceived as the usual national/popular italian performance. You know, keeping the audience along all the evening is capital. Raffa is known in many countries. Probably RAI and record companies involved, would… Read more »

Ok. Yes. I agree. Only problem is Raffaella Carrà has no record to promote anymore. So it will be hard to convince the “music industry” to dedicate an interval act to a monument of the italian TV and also of music which is not anymore “sellable” on the music market. I totally agree on her to co host the final or have her interview the other singers in the green room. But marketing, record industry, have other preferences and I am sure they will prefer to dedicate 5 minutes of interval act in the final to somebody else. Maybe she… Read more »

Another presenter, already working for RAI and ticking the boxes of multiculturalism, inclusivity and ethnicity of modern Europe, would be Livio Beshir. He’s an Italian with egyptian ancestry, like Mahmood. He is goodlooking, fluent in english and french. He is a professional in red carpet interviews (especially Venice and Rome film festivals), but I believe he could definitely co-host on the stage, as he already presented music shows or other TV shows. He currently presents MovieMag on Rai4 and RaiPlay. Take a look here:

So I have all the right to think that Livio Beshir is professional, goodlooking, with a wonderful smile, stage presence and speaks wonderfully english and probably also french. And I am sure he will slay the stage with his charme and presenting/interviewing skills. Among the other comments I have read some crazy proposals like Flavio Insinna,… Read more »

‘To be good-looking, with a wonderful smile’ is not a requisite to be a Eurovision presenter. Mahmood is a great artist, but he doesn’t speak English well and he is not a presenter. Beshir is not more known than Mahmood, he never presented a relevant programme in Italy and he is not known among young people (about 8.000 followers on Instagram). You need to stop saying that I don’t like him, because his skin colour. Just stop. Insinna, Amedeus and Marrone will never present Eurovision. They don’t know English and Marrone is not a presenter. Yes, of course we need… Read more »

No, I am not unhinged. In the video you mentioned, the part in which the presenter interviews Matt Damon is dubbed and there is an Italian voice and I can’t hear his questions in English. Anyway, as I wrote in the previous comment, I watched other interviews in English by this Livio and I don’t find him so strikingly articulate in English . Also I don’t watch Amici or whatever shows you mentioned.

In fact, you are entitled to your opinion. But this doesn’t mean that you can accuse me of being racist, when actually I told you that I despise any form of discrimination. You wrote that this Livio is good looking and with mixed heritage and thus they should take him as a presenter.
Actually, a perfect host, (better than Cattelan) would be Pierfrancesco Favino with a perfect English and who co-hosted Sanremo Festival previously.
Regarding interviewing Hollywood stars, I tend to prefer someone who avoids unnecessary flattery!

And he has never presented a show of that size, is not able to sing, is not able to dance, etc. He was perfect for the italian audience who is not very selective like an international audience. Do you believe an actor like Favino to be equally acclaimed in all the countries of Europe? And the show is only about music.

I’m from Italy and well, the idea of an ‘older face’, as you say, isn’t bad in itself, though knowing our show business it kinda scares me, because most ‘older’ (or simply well established hosts, who have a longer career) tend to be very conservative and indulge in boring/weak/ very little classy jokes (when not barely sexist), so they wouldn’t be a good fit, in my opinion.

I think Carrá would be such a great choice. She is very well known and for once we would have someone that represents a demographic group that is more and more forgotten by the ESC.

Yes,if Carra can stand to host the show, she will be absolutely a value for the show.

Great hosts prediction! My other predictions for the hosts are Mahmood and Chiara Ferragni.

I think you’re onto something with Chiara, I could see her having a role similar to that of Nikkie Tutorials from this year’s contest!

Her husband Fedez (2nd place in Sanremo behind Måneskin) has recently been sued by RAI, she won’t work with them.

Agreed… as much as I adore listening to him sing in Italian, I haven’t been impressed with his English tracks.

Anyone thinks Chiara Ferragni would be a good choice for a Eurovision host? She’s a very well-known public figure internationally and in years past many similarly well-known people have been selected to host such as Bar Refaeli in 2019 and Pilou Asbaek in 2014.

Chiara is not going to work with RAI after what happened between them and Fedez though.

What happened with Fedez and Rai?

Fedez gave a speech during an event broadcast by RAI that was considered too political by RAI directors, he complained on social media and before his speech about them trying to censor him, when RAI denied Fedez posted a recording of the phone call between him and the event’s staff. Now RAI has sued him for posting a private conversation without their consent.
This is obviously a simplified version of what happened, there are a lot more nuances to this whole mess.

Great choice! It can be also, if winners from the past will be part of hosting. Like Francesco gabani and il volo. Alessananro seems to be a great choice!.

Il volo are not fluent in english at all. They presented saturday evening a show tribute to Morricone in Verona’s Arena and a friend who was there told me they don’t speak english well.

Not Il Volo nor Gabbani are potential hosts, since they don’t speak English fluently.

If they are afraid of their jokes falling through, just do it like AVROTROS did – remove them completely from the show ?

I’d suggest Michelle Hunziker as well. She could be the kind of funny host we have every year

This year it was Nikkie so I guess she’d be responsible for the backstage and the interviews, that would be cool

What about her daughter, Aurora Ramazzotti? I haven’t been liking Michelle that much recently (despite loving her in the past), but her daughter seems to be a rising star. She’s young, funny, nice, has already some experience in musical programs and should have a fairly good knowledge of the matter, as her dad is a very famous musician too.

Let’s hope that they will present a tight show that will last less than 4 hours, and not something like the marathon of San Remo.

You can not compare Sanremo with Eurovision. First of all in Sanremo there is a live orchestra and each instrument is live, in Esc it’s not. Then you have many famous guests to performe. I’m sure Eurovision 2022 will last as every Esc.

Sanremo is the most popular and important TV show in Italy, it is not just a music contest. The most famous artists, actors and personalities in general have been on that stage. It certainly takes time. In terms of performance it is much more followed than Esc.

Sanremo is useful to RAI to present to the audience all the shows, fictions they will present to the public, during the incoming season. So it’s used as a showcase with an audience of 17/20 million people.

For me, I think American YouTubers Rosanna Pansino and Paul Barbato should go on and host Eurovision 2022. They’re both part Italian. Rosanna’s mother is both Italian and American, and Paul (or “Barbs” as he calls himself) is a quarter Italian from his late father’s side. Their Italian isn’t the best, but they both speak English so they can get over with hosting Eurovision 2022.

Sometimes I wonder what some people have in mind when thinking about Italy as a country. Two American youtubers totally unknown to the Italian public, as if we don’t have anyone better available ? ??

We have enough youtubers on our own. Thanks. Probably Chiara Ferragni with 20 millions followers would be more than enough. But I don’t vote for her. We need real presenters and singers able to perform a show, not only a presentation. It’s a musical contest, non a fashion one. A role like Nikki Tutorials will be better for her, especially on Youtube.
