Sanremo 2021: Annalisa tops the leaderboard after the first night

After the first night of the Sanremo Music Festival, Annalisa is on top of the ranking so far. Former Eurovision participant and bookmakers favourite Francesca Michielin is ranked as fourth. But beware, there are still many nights and voting possibilities left in Italy.

This Saturday Sanremo 2021 concludes with the grand final, in which all acts will present their songs again. The best three will go on to a superfinal. The first two nights of the Italian music festival will showcase all artists presenting their songs for the first time. 13 of them did so on Tuesday night.
