    Oh good, there’s nothing planned for the 22nd of January, which is when I’m running my national final favourites night that I am hosting on the 22ND OF JANUARY.

    Oh Christ, look at the 6th of March :D
    Tune in at 12pm for the opening ceremony of the San Remo final, wait til the evening and watch Andra Chansen, Denmark, Estonia and Portugal one after the other with an hour’s break in between each, then skip back to San Remo where the third song of the night will just be about to start.

    “Sorry boss, I can’t come in from the 2nd to the 7th of March. I’ll be busy watching a random Italian musical festival that takes place in a small coastal town with each nightly show lasting approximately 42 hours”

    Shame so many countries won't be doing National Finals this year, but maybe it's quality over quantity...

    It’s usually a case of the national finals picking the INCORRECT choices leading everyone to proclaim it the WORST YEAR EVER in about mid February, only for the internals to bring the quality as usual in early March. I don’t see it as a BAD THING tbh.

    I mean nearly all the Eurovisions are on YouTube in full so we could do a Moopy thing like we did in early lockdown.

    I guess it's either that or a sync watching of the Lithuanian heats.

    As the national final schedule is on the slim side this year, would there be any interest in a Best of Sanremo sync watch?

    I'm happy to try and organise something as a warm up/introduction for any Sanremo virgins before the WEEK OF TERROR begins in early March. Probably on the evening of 28th February.

    Huzzah! We'll have a small crowd in this year's Sanremo thread then. :disco:

    I'm sure you'll survive once you get over the PACING issues.

    Every good Euro historian knows without Sanremo there'd be no Eurovision and thus no Melodifestivalen.

    I look forward to starting these half way through since the first half will inevitably clash with Masked Singer

    Oh if you haven't done Melfest studies yet you're nowhere near ready for this test of endurance.

    More importantly, without Sanremo the broadcaster would have an 11 hour spot in their schedule to fill each week.

    Looking through the Eurovision forum I think that’s usually done as a separate thread!
