ITALY – RAI announced that Laura Ciriaco will be disqualified from Sanremo Giovani which was about to take place in a few days. The Italian broadcaster decided that her song bid entry for the Giovani competition breach the rules as it is similar to Jason Mraz’s song “I won’t give up”.
Umbrian Federico Angelucci winner of Amici di Maria De Filippi and Tale e Quale Show will replace her with the song “L’uomo che verrà”
RAI based its decision on the advise of its legal department after thorough evaluation of the song.
Sanremo Giovani takes place on December 20 and 21. Two winners will proceed to Sanremo Festival in February.
