Italy Sanremo 2021: Night 2 combined demoscopic jury ranking

Italy: Results of the second night of Sanremo 2021

The Italian Festival di Sanremo 2021 had its second night where remaining contestants performed their songs for the first time

As Italy commenced with their national final Festival di Sanremo 2021, today the second night of Italy's biggest festival took place. During the first night we already saw half of this year's contestants while during the second night, the remaining contestants performed their song for the first time.

At the end of the show, the songs were ranked and were fully decided by the demoscopic jury. After the second night provisional ranking was revealed, the hosts later announced how the provisional ranking of both nights combined were placed. These results are for guidance however an average of these results will be taken into consideration when combined with the public televote on the final night to determine the superfinalists.

Tonight we've seen various guest performances however two were past representatives for Italy. Il Volo who represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with "Grande Amore" and Gigliola Cinquetti who actually on for Italy in 1964 with "Non ho l'età" and later returned in 1974 with "Si".
