Italy will defend their title!
There were rumours that Italy would not be back this year, but luckily RAI has chosen to return for a second year of JESC! Can they win again?
Italy will choose their singer on September 12th during the first night of “Ti lascio una canzone 2015”. This is the 7th season of this musical variety show in which around 35 children aged 7-15 perform various old songs after being selected from prestigious music schools. In 2009, 14 year olds Gianluca Ginoble, Piero Barone, and Ignazio Boschetto competed together. They would later become Il Volo, ESC 2015 representatives of Italy! Both Federica Falzon and Vincenzo Cantiello also came from this show! Even better news is that RAI1 will broadcast the show so as to appeal to a bigger audience.
