ITALY: NEW NAMES EMERGE AS SANREMO HOPEFULS

In less than five days we will finally know who are the 22 (yes, 22. Carlo Conti announced a few days ago there will be 22 Big instead of 20 this year "as the bids were so good it was hard to choose") Big ones are. 
On top of the names speculated and rumored before (read all about them in the post by clicking Sanremo banner on top of this page) new ones in the last minute include Amara, Loredana Bertè, Samuel Romano (ex-Subsonica now solo), Riccardo Sinigallia and Paola Iezzi (ex Paola & Chiara). Even Toto Cutugno is mentioned all of sudden....
Some interesting names rumored as songwriters as well. Amara (for Fiorella Mannoia), Giorgia (for Sergio Sylvestre), Raige (for Marco Carta), Zibba (for Marco Masini), Jovanotti (for Samuel Romano), Giuseppe Anastasi (Ron), Sergio Endrigo (for Riccardo Sinigallia) ...
And how many rappers tere will be this time? Baby K? Briga? Raige
Grido? Moreno? Clementino?

On the other hand it had been confirmed these names have not submitted a song: Emma, Nina Zilli, Raf, Nek, Anna Tatangelo, Alessandra Amoroso, Malika Ayane, Giorgia, Irama, Noemi, Edoardo Bennato. It seems also pretty sure these have not passed the Conti test: Jalisse, Albano, Gerardina Trovato, Loredana Errore, Bianca Atzei, Francesco Sarcina, Marcella Bella, Levante, Francesco Di Bella and the girl group Simonetta, Greta, Roberta and Verdiana
But time will tell.... tic toc..... and one of them will be waving the Italian flag in Kyiv Eurovision song contest in May.....

Follow me come Monday December 12, I will be posting the names as they happen.....
