This 2011 edition is turning Italian. Not is only both Italy and San Marino returning but France is sending a fake-Italian tenor, and UK is sending Blue who are/were so big in Italy they even recorded in Italian especially for their local fans, like A chi mi dice.
Strangely Romania doesn't send a song in Italian this year, or Latvia. And Finland didn't even have a song in Italian in our selection. What a relief! As we have now the real thing, why bother?
