Italy 2015: Conchita Wurst to attend Sanremo?
Olivier Rocher (France)
ROME, ITALY – Preparations for the 65th edition of the festival are going full swing, but one question remains for many Italian Eurofans. Since Sanremo is famous for having international guest on stage sometimes, will we have the chance to watch Conchita perform in Teatro Ariston?
The tradition is that organizers of the festival often invite international artist to perform, so a participation of the Austrian diva is more than possible.
On January 4th, during the “L’Arena” show, Massimo Giletti will broadcast an interview he did with Conchita. During the show, the official invitation to perform could be made. It all depends on Carlo Conti and Rai director Giancarlo Leone’s will. There is high hopes though since we already know that during the interview (which was recorded a few days ago), Conchita was asked about a performance in Sanremo Frestival, and that she said she would be delighted and would highly consider the invitation if she was proposed, even if her agenda is packed with commitments. So anything is possible…
We have also learned that even without an invitation, Conchita could have performed on stage, together with “Big” artists during the “cover night”. Unfortunately, the duo Casto & Falconi who wanted to ask the bearded diva to join them on stage did not qualify for the festival.
Will we see Conchita in Sanremo Festival? Well, doors are opened but it’s all in the hands of Carlo Conti now…
