Italy has chosen a winner at the Sanremo Music Festival, but has no immediate role in the Eurovision Song Contest. Uku Suviste comes to Rotterdam on behalf of Estonia within a few months with the song “The Lucky One”. It could also have been the Estonian entry last year, then with the song What Love Is.
In Denmark, the Fyr & Flamme duo were selected for the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix Program. During the Song Festival, the duo will play “Øve os på hinanden” (Practice each other).
Portugal presents an entire song in English for the first time in history: ‘Love is on my side She will perform The Black Mamba in May, as it became known after the Portuguese Da Cansao Final.
In Italy, rock band Måneskin has been voted to win the Sanremo Music Festival. However, this does not directly mean that the band is representing Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam. This will be announced later. Francesca Michelin, for example, took second place in 2016, but was still allowed to participate on behalf of Italy at the time after the rock group Stadio – the winner – kindly thanked them.
A few weeks ago, there was also a so-called Super Saturday. Then Norway, Finland and Spain chose their entries in the Eurovision Song Contest.
