Italy: Francesca Michielin is the chosen one for Eurovision 2016!

After the rejecting of Stadio to represent Italy at Eurovision 2016, it was time for RAI to decide who will fly to Stockholm.

After many rumours, the Italian broadcaster has just come with a decision: the runner-up of Sanremo 2016 Francesca Michielin is the selected one to compete at the grand final of Eurovision. The young singer competed at the music festival with the song “Nessun Grado di Separazione”, but it hasn’t been confirmed if she will be performing this composition in Stockholm.

Last year, Italy managed to achieve a third place with “Il Volo” and the song “Grande Amore” despite coming first in the public televote.

Do you like the Italian choice?
