Sanremo 2024: The top five performers on first night include Mahmood and Loredana

Buonasera Sanremo! The largest music competition in Italy, Sanremo Festival, which is the source of inspiration for Eurovision, is about to begin its 74th edition in this coastal city of Italy. Thirty competitors are competing for fame, glory, and a trip to Malmö. Numerous millions of Italians are prepared to spend almost 28 hours immersed in the live performance of Teatro Ariston on their televisions.

The event’s opening night is now over, with all 30 bands taking the stage to play. After that, a ranking that determined the top five performers of the evening was produced by combining the evaluations of the press jury (a television jury and an online jury):

  • Loredana Bertè – “Pazza”
  • Angelina Mango – “La noia”
  • Annalisa – “Sinceramente”
  • Diodato – “Ti muovi”
  • Mahmood – “Tuta gold”

Every night, Amadeus, who is hosting Sanremo for the fifth and possibly last time, is joined by a special co-host. He was joined on the opening night by Marco Mengoni, the Italian representative for Eurovision in 2013 and 2023 and a two-time Sanremo winner.

The audience experienced additional performances by guests chosen by the presenter in addition to seeing the artists perform. The co-host for the evening, Marco Mengoni, made two appearances on stage. He started out by performing “Due Vite,” which was both his Sanremo 2023 winning song and his fourth-place Eurovision 2023 submission. Subsequently, he wrapped out the evening with a medley of his best-known songs, which included “L’essenziale,” the 2013 Sanremo winner and seventh-place Eurovision entry.

On Night 1, Lazza performed his Sanremo 2023 song “Cenere” on the Suzuki Stage, which is devoted to musicians that have recently participated in Sanremo. Furthermore, Tedua performed a song on the floating stage, which catered to performers who were well-liked by younger viewers. The Teatro Ariston is not inside these two stages.

Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest

Italy competed in the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956, making it one of the competition’s original members. Gigliola Cinquetti (1964), Toto Cutugno (1990), and Maneskin (2021) are the three national champions. The competition was held in Naples in 1965, Rome in 1991, and Turin in 2022.

Italy left the competition in 1998 and made a 13-year return to Eurovision in 2011. The Italians have had tremendous success in the competition since they returned to it, finishing in the top 10 on the scoreboard ten times, including winning in 2021. The nation in southern Europe has participated in Europe’s most popular TV program 48 times.
