Sanremo Music Festival chronology
2008

The Sanremo Music Festival 2008 was the 58th Sanremo Music Festival, held at the Teatro Ariston in Sanremo. The first and the second night of the show were held on 25 and 26 February 2008, while the last three nights were held from 28 February and 1 March 2008.

The contest, broadcast by Rai 1, was presented by Pippo Baudo and Piero Chiambretti with Bianca Guaccero and Andrea Osvárt. The competition included two different sections. The "Big Artists" section, starring twenty established singers, was won by the duo composed of Giò Di Tonno and Lola Ponce with the song "Colpo di fulmine", while the newcomers' section, featuring 14 debuting or little known artists, was won by Sonohra's "L'amore".

The show received poor ratings compared to those of the previous years. All of the five nights of the show were watched by less than 10,000,000 people, the worst result in the contest's history.[1][2]

Presenters and personnel[edit]

Pippo Baudo, presenter and artistic director of the show.

In June 2007, RAI vice director Giancarlo Leone officially announced Pippo Baudo and Piero Chiambretti as the presenters of the Sanremo Music Festival, also confirming Baudo as the artistic director of the show.[3][4] It was Baudo's thirteenth Sanremo Music Festival as the presenter of the competition.[5] Italian actress Bianca Guaccero and Hungarian fashion model and actress Andrea Osvárt were later selected as the co-presenters of the show.[6]

Gaetano Castelli was the creator of the scenography for the fifteenth time,[7] while theatre director Gino Landi, assisted by Massimo Fusi, was chosen as the director and choreographer of the show[8] for the sixth time.[9] The Sanremo Festival Orchestra was directed by Pippo Caruso.[8]

Nights[edit]

First night[edit]

During the first night of the competition, held on 25 February 2008, ten out of twenty acts competing in the Big Artists section performed their songs. They were voted by a jury composed of 1,000 people, 20 in each different region of Italy.[10] The awarded points were not revealed, but they contributed to determine the final result of the competition. Additionally, 5 acts composing the Newcomers' section sang their entries and were voted by the same jury. The detailed ranking was not revealed, but the three acts receiving the less votes were eliminated from the competition.[11]

Notes
  • A ^ Loredana Berté was disqualified from the competition after her performance, because it was revealed that "Musica e parole" was actually a cover of Ornella Ventura's "L'ultimo segreto", released in 1988, while the rules of the competition state that competing song cannot be released or publicly performed before the beginning of the Festival. Berté changed only some lyrics of the song, claiming she thought it was never released before. Despite her elimination, Berté was allowed to perform again during the Sanremo Music Festival.[20]

Guests and other performances[edit]

Third night[edit]

During the third night, held on 28 February 2008, each contestant of the Big Artists section performed the competing song with a guest. No artist from the Newcomers' section performed during the night. Each performance was voted by a jury of 1,000 people, as in the previous two nights. Public votes were also introduced during the third night. No details about the rankings were revealed and no one of the competing acts was eliminated, but the collected votes contributed to determine the winner of the competition, during the final night held on 1 May 2008.[11]
