Lele, the winner of Nuove proposte/Newcomers 2017

Tonight's the night. The five day long 67th festival della canzone italiana comes to an end and by some very late or early hours we will have the new winner and who will represent Italy in the Eurovision song contest 2017 in Kyiv in May. Maybe.
Carlo Conti and Maria De Filippi are hosting. Zucchero and Alvaro Soler are singing. Paolo Vallesi and Amara will be presenting their song Pace that didn't make the cut of 22 Big. Maurizio Crozza, Enrico Montesano  and Geppi Cuccari is doing comedy and there are countless other guests, among them Rita Pavone, also a member of the jury who will be awarded for her life long career in music. . And the 16 remaining Big artists are ready to fight for the top-3. 
The voting is the already familiar 3-way of televote, expert jury (Giorgio Moroder (head of jury, Italian composer and producer), Linus (radio DJ), Andrea Morricone (composer and conducter), Rita Pavone (singer), Paolo Genovese (director and screenwriter), Violante Placido (actress and singer), Greta Menchi (YouTuber) and Giorgia Surina (presenter)
and demoscopic jury. The previous votes are zeroed so it all starts from the beginning. After the first round the top-3 will be performed again live or by taped performance, votes zeroed and revoted with the same 3-way.

Francesco Gabbani should win. His song is a breath of fresh air!
