The Sanremo Giovani contest will take place on 20 December. The three lucky acts will join 23 other acts — who RAI handpicked — in the big Sanremo festival. 

The lucky 12 are…

bnkr44 and santi francesi are my favorites so far. I’m still patiently waiting for the 4 Area Sanremo songs to be released before I finalize my top 3 picks

Nice to see Tancredi in. I was once addicted to “Isole” thanks to the Netflix series “Di4ri”

I discovered Tancredi 3 years ago and I was obsessed with him, and always wished to see him in San Remo.

The only artist I knew before hand was bnkr44 and I liked their album when I listened to it. I feel as if, recently, Sanremo Giovani hasn’t quite produced the future stars that it was doing in previous editions, but they’d be a good candidate to change that.

Sanremo trumps Eurovision at this point.
