In February, millions of viewers expect to follow the annual Sanremo competition in Italy and this year is not any different with more then ten million viewers, averaging on each respective evening. The fourth evening has just come to an end with the winner of the 'Sezioni Giovani' revealed to the public following a public and jury vote, both accountable to half of the final votes in this evenings' showcase. The talent was extremely high and out of the four competing entries, there were at least three which deserved to do well and this was well regarded. All of the artists are backed by record labels by virtue of making such a notorious competition and the winner of the evening, Antonio Maggio is definitely gaining ground in the music scene.

Antonio Maggio took part in the first edition of the Italian version of the X Factor alongside another three members, collectively known as ARAM and they managed to triumph ahead of Giusy Ferreri. This was quite the achievement but unfortunately, things did not pan out in a positive manner their debut album did not really post successful results. In the meantime though, Antonio Maggio has been trying to establish a solo career having signed with an independent record label; Rusty Records in 2011 but since entering the Sanremo competition, he was contracted with Universal Music Italia and thus that is through which company his single Mi servirebbe sapere will be released. In second place this evening was Ilaria Porceddu with In equilibrio whilst the Mia Martini Critics Award was given to Renzo Rubino with the track Il postino (amami uomo).
