SANREMO 2015: NOT ONLY CONCHITA WURST....

Sanremo festival is not only about music. Or actually most of the time you would like it to be more about music. There are always endless guests and at times the show stops for talk shows that seem to go on forever. Or stand up comedians come and talk for ages, which is of course for non-Italians total waste of time. But next week when it starts and you are watching, remember it's Sanremo. It's Italian television. Nothing you can do about it. It's not a national Eurovision selection even if it serves as one, too. But it's only a minor sidekick and that moment will propably last in that five day marathon so long that if you blink you might miss it..... 
Anyways, it has been confirmed and/or rumoured there will be several comedians this year, as usual. Also several athletes. And a lot of people you propably never heard of; after all it's Sanremo and everyone from Nobel prize sciencist to astronaut is welcome. There will be actors like Will Smith and Charlize Theron. There will be Albano and Romina Power reunion! International stars like Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Saint Motel and The Aver. There should have been Stevie Wonder and U2 but both have a good excuse to skip it: Wonder will have his 9th child born those days, Bono had the infamous bike accident.... but there are local megastars like Tiziano Ferro, Gianna Nannini and Biagio Antonacci.  But one name has caused the biggest stir: reigning Eurovision queen Conchita Wurst. Time will tell if she will be the one to hand over the ticket to Vienna 2015 Eurovision to the winner?
