Sanremo Festival: the 22 big names announce the titles of their songs in the competition

Everyone on the Casino stage (except Elisa in connection from home because she was hit by Covid) with Amadeus, during ‘Sanremo Giovani’ between clips of their successes and encouragement in videos of their colleagues

Announced, by the artists themselves, song titles that the 22 big (in addition to the three young finalists: Yuman the winner, Tananai and Matteo Romano to complete the podium) will lead to the Sanremo Festival, from 1 to 5 February at the Ariston. On the stage of the Casino, reserved in the evening at ‘Sanremo Young’, the singers flanked by Amadeus – arrived for the occasion aboard a vintage car with an unlikely celestine color and that towards the end of the broadcast greets Pippo Baudo, granting him that ‘Sanremo Giovani’ invented it himself … – between clips of their successes and video cheers of their colleagues revealed the titles of their songs.
