December 15 will be the Big Day for Sanremo fans as besides having the show to select six Newcomers out of Sará Sanremo hopefuls (here) also the other two newcomers selected through AreaSanremo will be announced (here). All the newcomers songs are already available, have a listen throught those links.
But what we all are waiting for is the Big artists will be revealed and their song details as well but the song won't be heard as usual until they are played live on television during the festival. One of them most probably becomes the Italian entry for the Lisbon 2018 Eurovision song contest. Federico Russo and Claudia Gerini will be hosting the show.
The rumor mill for the Big ones is wild as ever and below are listed the most rumored ones, whose submission period ended last weekend but Baglioni & co can and have also invited whoever they please. Among them quite a few Eurovision veterans.... Anyone outside this list would be almost a scoop, so eager the press is to find out the possible names.
