Italy Sanremo 2022

Italy: Results of the fourth night of Sanremo 2022

Tonight it was "Cover Night" at Sanremo 2022. The 25 competing artists brought to the stage cover songs along with guest stars

After three nights of Festival di Sanremo 2022, we now heard all the songs in contention vying to win the Italian national final. Tonight, the fourth night of the prestigious festival was held but the competing songs were not heard. Instead, all artists performed cover songs from the 20th century alone or together with an acclaimed Italian or international guest artist.

Sanremo 2022

At Nights 1 & 2 (Tuesday & Wednesday) all the 25 artists performed their song for the first time, half of them sang in the first one, the other half sang on the second night. The outcome of both nights was decided by a press jury (representing TV/printed/web media and radio in Italy).

At Night 3 (Thursday) all the 25 artists performed their own song again. Televoting and a demoscopic jury (a jury with 1000 public viewers all over Italy) formed the results of the night and a new ranking was elaborated, where the previous votes from the first two nights were added.

At Night 4 (Friday) all the 25 artists were given a chance to choose and to perform a cover of a song from the 20th century. The artists could perform the song solo or together with an acclaimed Italian or international guest artist.

At Saturday's Final, every contestant will perform their songs again, and the top 3 songs will proceed to the Superfinal. A new voting will take place and at the end of it, we will have the winner of the 72nd edition of Sanremo Music Festival, and will have first refusal to represent Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
