The list features a number of returning artists, including four returning Italian Eurovision representatives (Mahmood – 2019, Fabrizio Moro – 2018, Emma – 2014, Massimo Ranieri – 1971 & 1973, Gianni Morandi – 1970 and IVA Zanicchi – 1969).

About Sanremo 2021

The 71st edition of Sanremo Music Festival took place between the 2nd and 6th March 2021. This was later than usual, having been pushed back due to the ongoing pandemic, which also caused other changes for the festival. For one, after weeks of exchanges between Sanremoโ€™s Artistic Director Amadeus, the CTS and Rai, the festival did not have a live audience.

Despite the protocols, the festival went ahead with 26 participating artists. Alongside Amadeus and Floriello, the shows were co-hosted by Matilda De Angelis, Elodie, Vittoria Ceretti, Barbara Palombelli and Beatrice Venezi. Night one was opened with a performance of โ€œFai Rumoreโ€ by Diodato, who won the 2020 edition.

On night five, 26 became three, with Mรฅneskin, Michielin and Fedez and Ermal Meta advancing to the superfinal. Ultimately, Mรฅneskin triumphed with a staggering 53.5% of the vote. This success translated to Eurovision victory, winning the contest in Rotterdam with 524 points.
