Eurovision 2023, Mara Maionchi to comment together with Gabriele Corsi

The announcement to ‘Tonight there is Cattelan’

Mara Maionchi will be there to support Gabriele Corsi in the commentary of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. The announcement was made by the same radio speaker and TV host during ‘Stasera c’è Cattelan’, Alessandro Cattelan’s program broadcast on Rai2 in second evening.

“I’m in Catanzaro to do Italia’s Got Talent, otherwise I would have been in the studio there with you enjoying yourself with gusto – Maionchi said in connection with Cattelan – I’ll work to not make a bad impression, I already have a huge problem with English. But going to Liverpool…it opens my heart.”

This year the international singing competition moves to the UK. Taking place from 9 to 13 May at the Liverpool Arena, the Eurovision Song Contest will see representatives from 37 countries compete. The 20 songs qualified from the two semi-finals will join the 6 qualified by right in the final: Italy, France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom – the so-called ‘big 5’ – and reigning champion Ukraine. The two semi-finals on 9 and 11 May will be broadcast in prime time on Rai 2, the Grand final on 13 May on Rai 1. The simulcast commentary of the three evenings will be broadcast on Rai Radio 2. ESC 2023 will also be broadcast on RaiPlay.

Italy will be represented for the second time by Marco Mengoni who, after a 13-year career, 7 studio albums, 69 platinum albums, over 1.8 billion audio/video streams and 9 live tours, triumphed at the 73rd edition of the Festival of San Remo.

Of the more than forty artists or groups that represented Italy in the 48 editions of the Eurovision Song Contest in which we participated, Marco Mengoni is the eighth artist to return to the competition: before him Domenico Modugno (three times), Claudio Villa, Gigliola Cinquetti, Massimo Ranieri, Al Bano and Romina Power, Mia Martini and Mahmood (twice). Among the other Italians in the competition, Gianni Morandi, Toto Cutugno, Alice and Franco Battiato, Umberto Tozzi and Raf and, in recent years, Il Volo, Francesca Michielin, Francesco Gabbani, Ermal Meta, Fabrizio Moro, the Måneskin and Blanco (with Mahmood ). And Mengoni is ready to challenge other nations to bring the “show of records” back to our country once again.

This year’s super favorite is Sweden: Loreen, the winner of Eurovision 2012 with the European hit ‘Euphoria’ is back in the competition with a song, ‘Tattoo’ which is igniting the enthusiasm of fans and critics.

Presenting the international show a year after Laura Pausini, Alessandro Cattelan and Mika are Graham Norton, one of the best-known British radio and TV hosts, the actress Hannah Waddingham and the singers Alisha Dixon, English, and Jula Sanina, Ukrainian.
