Sanremo is the annual series of week long concerts featuring some of the biggest names in Italian music. For the past number of years it has served as the country’s means of choosing their Eurovision artist and song. The participants for the 2020 competition were announced this week.
It’s a new week which means it’s time for a new batch of songs competing to be named the best song of 2019! This week’s list of sixteen songs include hits from previous winners Netta (Israel, 2018) and Conchita (Austria, 2014), as well as new tracks from the likes of Cascada, Guy Sebastian, Hatari, Jedward, Benjamin Ingrosso and Waylon. Check out the full line up below and vote for your five favourites in our poll.
Three more songs have advanced to the top 30 of our song of 2018. Readers have been voting all week and we can now reveal the three songs that have qualified.

This year’s theme was ‘Celebrate Diversity’ and although an overwhelming number of nations chose to send entries in the English language, a small number sang in their native tongue. This included French, Italian, Portuguese and Hungarian being represented, as well as a first time appearance for Belorussian and Romansh. Here are the nominees for the category Best Song Not In The English Language at the Eurovision NI Awards 2017.
Here’s ten new tracks from your Eurovision faves to get your ears around! Back with new tracks this month are: Zoe (Austria, 2016), Mandinga (Romania, 2012), Frans (Sweden, 2016), Francesco Gabbani (Italy, 2017), Eric Saade (Sweden (2011), Jamala (Ukraine/Winner, 2016) as well as some of our faves from selection shows Samir och Viktor (Melfest) and Margaret (Krajowe Eliminacje 2016).
Winner of the New Artist category and the Big Artists category in back to back Sanremo Contests, Francesco Gabbani will represent Italy at Eurovision 2017 with his song ‘Occidentali’s Karma’.
