In Italy the 24 candidates in the Campioni section have performed their Sanremo 2020 songs for the first time. Based on the results in the first two nights of the prestigous Italian competition, we now have some current standings before we go to the final on Saturday.
It is possible that something unique will happen on Saturday, as we haven’t seen a former winner get the highest place again since 2002. Back then Matia Bazar won Sanremo after previously winning the contest in 1978. This time, Francesco Gabbani could do it again, after winning Sanremo in 2017 with the song ‘Occidentali’s Karma’. He was also the big favourite to win Eurovision in that year, but ended up in a 6th place.
Out of the 24 candidates, 16 of them made it clear to braodcaster RAI that they would also go to Eurovision, should they win Sanremo. We have to wait until Saturday to know if the actual winner is one of those 16 acts.
