There is an “Amadeus Ter” also for Sanremo Giovani with a completely renewed formula for the 2021 edition (the regulation is online) and among the main innovations are the elimination of the New Proposals category in the February Festival, thus guaranteeing the ” direct access to the 2 winning artists of Sanremo Giovani in the competition of the Champions (final evening Wednesday 15 December); a further reduction of the age range to participate in Sanremo Giovani: the artists must be between 16 and 29 years of age, as of January 1, 2022; the 30 selected artists who will access the live auditions will have to propose two unpublished pieces to the Music Commission, one for Sanremo Giovani, while the second will be presented, in case of victory, in February in the 72nd edition of the Sanremo Festival.
The 12 finalists of Sanremo Giovani – Wednesday 15 December, from the Teatro del Casinò di Sanremo, live on Rai1 – will first have to pass a series of passages and “exams”. The first step will see the artistic director and the musical commission chaired by him engaged in listening to all the pieces in compliance with the participation requirements, then there will be the choice of the 30 artists who will perform in the live auditions in Hall A in via Asiago. In this phase 8 of the 12 finalists of Sanremo Giovani will be selected. The other four artists who will compose the parterre of the final in December will be chosen, again by the musical commission, among the winners of the Sanremo Area contest.
«This year again it will be a great challenge and also a privilege to discover and find emerging artists – commented Amadeus – to be launched and enhanced in the live broadcast on Rai1 in December. Italian music is experiencing a moment of great vitality and as always Rai is on the side of artists and young people ».
