Junior Eurovision: Italy reveals details for Saturday’s national final!

RAI has revealed more details regarding their Junior Eurovision national final, which is set to take place on Saturday night!

The Italian broadcaster will select its 2015 entrant during a special edition of “Ti Lascio una Canzone”, the talent show from which last year’s entrant, Vincenzo Cantiello, was chosen.

A total of 10 singers chosen from previous editions of the show will compete to wave the Italian flag in Sofia (Bulgaria). The national final will be formed by three different rounds:

Round 1

  • The 10 contestants are put into duels against each other, with five qualifying to the next round.
  • The votes in this round will be cast by the Jury, Orchestra, and Televoting (33.3% each).
  • The five duel winners will advance to the final plus one wildcard from the eliminated four – meaning that six proceed to round two.

Round 2

  • The six candidates will perform together in a medley.
  • A jury and televote will select their favourites (50% each).
  • The top two will advance to round three.

Round 3

  • The two artists will perform for the ticket to Sofia.
  • Voting will be from the public in a televote only, with the winner being chosen as the Junior Eurovision representative!
  • In the event of a tie, the jury will cast the deciding vote.

Two days ago, RAI confirmed one of the guests of the show: Martina Stoessel, main character of the Disney’s TV series “Violetta”.

Hosted by Antonella Clerici and under the direction of Maestro Leonardo De Amicis, you will be able to follow the Italian final for Junior Eurovision 2015 on Saturday at 21.20 CET.

About Belén García (Spain)

Belén García (Spain)

My name is Belén. I’m a musician and English teacher from Spain.

I have been following Eurovision since I was only 11 and the junior version since the beginning (expert of this contest). I love Eurovision because I love discovering new songs every year.

Before ESC+Plus, I have been part of very well-known websites about (Junior) Eurovision. Apart from writing, I love taking professional photos, designing and editing videos, I’m very creative!

I have already traveled to Eurovision and Junior Eurovision a few times and I highly recommend it! =)


  1. Best wishes to the forthcoming Italian JESC representative who will follow in Cantiello’s footsteps after JESC Malta 2014! The winner will also be another in a line of other Ti Lascio Una Canzone success stories, such as Il Volo, Andrea Faustini and Federica Falzon (Malta’s JESC 2014 representative on home soil) . All these artists have left a lasting impression on the viewers of RAIUNO who followed them from one TLUC show to another and still follow them in their successful musical career. It would be great to have these young artists again on the programme, either as individual guests or singing together in a very unique ensemble!!
