In these days the Sanremo festival is taking place, the historic Italian music competition of international importance. Although for many years I have seen the show this year I exempt myself from seeing it for many reasons. Among the main reasons there is certainly the scandal in the declarations (political) of Claudio Baglioni, the previous presenter, who took advantage of such an important stage to express an idea certainly in favor of immigration.
Obviously music is inclusion … instead politics is exclusion (by its nature and regardless of political color) so sharing these two things is out of reach for everyone … As if that were not enough last year many songs were excluded for reasons very delicate: such as that of pedophilia and songs were received that would have favored the record companies of some interested parties.
The Sanremo festival is certainly a much more elegant stage than the talent shows – which also have a lot of success in Italy, first of all xFactor – but in recent years it has lost a lot of decorum and above all of a musical level …
Despite everything, I only looked at a few clips and casually at the most interesting moment of the festival, that is when an international guest was present: Lewis Capaldi.
This year they called an infinite number of guests, in addition to the fact that the valleys and collaborators are many .. Nevertheless, Lewis Capaldi was the most relevant (musical) guest …
Cher, the legendary singer and actress, at 73 she performed in a magical show in the final of the season 28 of “Dancing with the stars”. Cher commanded the stage and all eyes were on her. The entire stage was decked out in ’70s decor. She transported us back in time!
Cher wore a shining and dazzling dress from head to toe that resembled the 70s. It was great to see her at DWTS because she had been missing since 2013, since she was the judge on the broadcast.

Cher is currently in the midst of the North American leg of her Here We Go Again tour. She’ll be making stops all along the United States and Canada. The tour will go well into 2020. The final performance of her tour is scheduled for May 6, 2020, in Sacramento, California.
The next sanremo festival will be presented by AMADEUS which will replace CLAUDIO BAGLIONE. In truth, the 2019 edition was characterized by many controversies against the Italian presenter and historian singer Baglioni, for having taken political positions on the reception of migrants, who land on the Italian coast every day; Furthermore, Baglioni did not involve some singers who had presented songs with very deep themes such as pedophilia. The next festival (70°) will take place between 4 and 8 February 2020.
Amadeus won the competition with Cattalan which was one of the possible choices as a presenter at the musical Fesitval.
Instead, the names of the people who will collaborate with AMEDUS in the show are not yet known.
