Now that more than 24 hours have passed since the dramatic conclusion of the 72nd Sanremo Festival, the show itself and its winners are being hailed as incredible successes!
The full ranking of the Festival’s 25 artists was released last night during the show, however the detailed jury and televoting data have since been published by RAI, and it showed that there was never a doubt that Mahmood and Blanco were going to cruise to a comfortable victory at the Ariston Theatre.

The peak TV audience share occurred at 01:47am when 8,743,000 sleepy-eyed viewers – a whopping 81.15% share – tuned in to see Mahmood and Blanco receive their trophy!
