Next in the finals is Italy! Italy has a fairly average Eurovision history, only winning twice and losing once. Additionally, they didn't participate between 1998 and 2010. Since their return in 2011 Italy has been doing really well, usually receiving top 10.
This year they are sending Il Volo to sing Grande Amore in hopes of another win for Italy. Il Volo has been around for quite a few years and even has four albums under their belt. They have a fairly strong following not only in Europe, but in Latin America as well oddly enough. Let's hear what their song sounds like.
I love their song! Not only that, but their performers are cute which usually gives them a few votes as well. I think Italy's song will do very well. The song itself is an operetic pop song which hasn't been done very often, but seems to fit in nicely with Eurovision. In fact, Italy is in the top 5 according to booking agents, so we'll see where they end up.
