As promised, I will be reviewing each Eurovision entry in the most inconsistent way possible. The entries will be reviewed in a random order using my personal wheel on the Wheel of Names website.
Next is Italy. They’re sending Marco Mengoni with Due Vite
Date chosen: February 11, 2023
Method: Through its annual San Remo Festival. 28 acts competed over 5 days for a chance to represent Italy in Liverpool. In this case, the winner gets first refusal, but Marco has accepted the offer to return to Eurovision after 10 years
What I think: Every Eurovision fan knows that Marco knows what he is doing. He had already competed in Malmo in 2013 with L’essenziale, placing 3rd (behind Denmark and Azerbaijan). However, as good as Due Vite is, I could not connect to it as much as I did with L’essenziale. Still, a great effort from Italy and I’m sure they will continue their impressive run at Eurovision
Chance (of qualifying and/or winning): It’s already in the final, and I think it’ll make the top 10, but I don’t think it’ll do as well as his previous entry
