The songs of last night
Of the 26 big players on the evening of Tuesday 2 March the first thirteen performed.
The competition was opened by Arisa with the song You could do more written by Gigi D’Alessio, her interpretation was very intense. Colapesce Dimartino with very light music gave life to a performance full of rhythm. Then it was the turn of Ora sung by Aiello, which however did not arrive and was placed in the last place of the partial ranking. Followed by Francesca Michielin and Fedez with Call me by name, very excited and exciting.
Max Gazzè with the Trifluoperazina Monstery Band staged a real show with the song The Pharmacist: he dressed as Leonardo Da Vinci and the mysterious group is actually made up of cardboard figures. He was not supposed to go on stage during the first night, but he had to replace Irama (a member of his staff tested positive), Noemi left open-mouthed with a dream look and a song he liked: Glicine.
And then it was Madame con Voce's turn: barefoot, very young and sparkling. Energy and rhythm thanks to Maneskin with Zitti e buona which gave life to a very rock performance. Ghemon's Perfect Moment was the next song in the race. And then Coma_Cose with Flames in the eyes and a very heartfelt interpretation.
Annalisa, beautiful, sang Dieci and the song broke through. To close Francesco Renga, with his powerful voice and the song When I find you, and Fasma with Parlami that arrives and enters the first three places of the partial ranking.
Among the guests, an extraordinary performance by a spirited Loredana Berté, a very good Diodato who once again thrilled the viewers as in the previous edition, when she had won the event. Achille Lauro, on the other hand, staged a unique show and as always amazes.
