The fourth, and penultimate evening of Sanremo will once again start at 20:40 CET. This time, the 25 acts are going to cover a hit from the 60s, 70s or the 80s – they have the option to perform alone, or joined by another Italian star in agreement with RAI, and the song they are covering can be an International hit, not necessarily Italian.

🇮🇪

Another show is set to start at the same time as Lithuania’s semi final 2 – and it’s the first semi final of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2022! A total of seven acts are going to compete in the first semi final – two of which are going to qualify for the Grand Final, another two for the second chance round, whilst three acts will be eliminated. The results will be decided solely by televoting, but quite a complicated one (you can read all about it here), and the show has been moved to the Avicii Arena (aka Globen).

We are ending the week with the same festival that started it as well – Sanremo! In the Grand Final of Sanremo, the 25 acts will once again perform their competing songs. An average score of the different juries in the previous evenings, as well as a new televoting round will decide on the final ranking. The top three acts will either perform again, or their previous live performances will be shown once more, and the voting lines will be open once again. The winner of Sanremo 2022 will then be decided by 33% Press voting (Print + Radio & TV + Web), 33% “Demoscopic 1000” jury, and 34% televoting. Remember that the winner of Sanremo will get the first choice on whether they want to represent Italy in Eurovision 2022, or not.


ESCBubble will, of course, blog all of this week’s shows LIVE, so make sure to join us every evening, watch the shows together with us, and let us know your thoughts on the performances, qualifiers, and winners in a chat together with us.
