Italy: Il Volo wins SanRemo 2015

After an incredibly long night, Il Volo wins and accepts the ticket to Vienna with the song Grande amore. It came down to a very close televoting between the top three favorites: Il Volo, Nek, and Malika Ayane. In the end, the trio had the stronger entry and will represent Italy in the grand final of Eurovision on the 23rd May. 

The list of entrants was condensed from 20 to only 16 on Friday night. After a long week of shows and presentations, an expert jury (30%), a demoscopic jury (30%) and televoters (40%) decided the winner.

The 16 competing songs in tonight’s final were (winner in bold):

  • Chiara – Straordinario
