ESC 2015 ITALY: SANREMO OPEN TO FOREIGN SINGERS?

An interesting twist in the Sanremo 2015 preparations! It seems Carlo Conti is aiming to have some foreign singers in the Big category as well, singing in Italian of course but being equal competitors like all the others. That way they could in theory also end up representing Italy in the Eurovision....
This wouldn't be the first time though, as we can remember for example 15-year-old Mexican Luis Miguel who came 2nd in 1985 with Noi, ragazzi di oggi and is today a Latin superstar. We can't also forget Argentinian Lola Ponce who won with Giò di Tonno Sanremo 2008 with Colpo di fulmine. And what about a certain Paolo Meneguzzi? Or Raquel Del Rosario with Luca Barbarossa in 2011?
Also in the old days the songs were often performed in two versions; one Italian and one foreign and the system was shortly readapted in the 1990's....
As for the other news emerging these days we have the possible co-hostesses Ambra Angiolini and Vanessa Incontrada as well as new names in the rumor mills for the participation: Alessandro Safina (oh yes, please! says this blooger with delight!) in duet with Luisa Corna, and previous winner and Eurovision veteran Enrigo Ruggeri.....
