It's been a week full of emotions, fashion and, of course, music in Italy as their popular song contest has been taking place in Sanremo. Presenter Carlo Conti assisted by last year's winner Arisa, last year's Italian performer at the Eurovision Song Contest Emma, and Spanish actress and dancer Rocio Muñoz awarded the trophy to the new winners: Il Volo!
An expert jury (30%), a demoscopic jury (30%) and televoting (40%) decided on the outcome and produced a superfinal with the Top 3:
- Il Volo - Grande amore 1st (39%)
- Nek - Fatti avanti amore 2nd (35%)
- Malika Ayane - Adesso e qui (Nostalgico presente) 3rd (26%)
The winner among these sixteen was automatically invited to represent Italy at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna.
