Tiziano…Tiziano…Tiziano…even his name is amazing. *le sigh* Unfortunately he doesn’t swing my way :( The day he came out broke my heart…and just furthers my belief that the universe hates me. Ah well, at least he is pretty…and has an amazing voice. I know i say this a lot, but he is my favorite…hands down. No, really, I mean it. I love to listen to him. He’s just perfect

He is one of the most famous contemporary Italian musicians. His music is basically pop, with influences of rock, r&b and hip-hop or other music styles.
I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know very much about him. All I know is that my Godmother has a huge crush on him. He’s been around for quite a while…and is a pretty famous and iconic singer in Italy…Simone Cristicchi even made a song about him…and you know you’ve made it when that happens, don’t we Sarkozy?

This is the song he sang at Sanremo this year, sorry about the delay. I love him so much! :P His voice…ugh…it gives me the feels. lol. The range he has is amazing. (Also I love the conductor, he is amazing and only partners with the best, so that says something)

How cool would it be to be the daughter of an Italian Rock and Blues legend? Pretty awesome right? Well that’s exactly what Irene Fornaciari’s life is like. She’s the daughter of Zucchero. ZUCCHERO, PEOPLE! I LOVE HIM! (Fun Fact: I went to his concert and it was amazing!) I’m so jealous of her.
Anyways the song, I didn’t not like it, but I didn’t like it either. I prefer her father’s songs to her.
I don’t have a bio for her in english either, so as soon as I have time to translate it I’ll post it.
So I love her. She’s powerful and has a great voice. The song she sung was by Fabrizio Moro, and if you’ve ever listen to him you’ll definitely see it in the song. It might not have been the best fit, but his raspy-esque quality fits hers so I think that was a smart move. He is a great writer, but I just don’t agree with having a famous singer with a distinct style write a song for another famous singer with an equally distinct style
Regardless that was my only complaint, and I loved it.
Noemi (born Veronica Scopelliti, January 25, 1982 in Rome) is an Italian singer. She owes her fame to her participation in the second season of the Italian talent show X-Factor in 2009 and the Italian music festival “Sanremo” in 2010.
I loved Lúnapop and was so sad to see it disbanded. However, last year he had a really successful song called Mondo (which I will post shortly). This was a submission by Naturamorta. (Thank you for your submission)

This is my jam! :P Last year when I was in Italy I played it over and over again. I love this man more than life. His songs (every single one) is amazing. He doesn’t hold anything back, and definitely lets you know how he feels about what he likes and doesn’t. (I wish I could be like that). He’s also very private about his life. He’s not like most rappers here in the states. He can actually be a role model to someone. This was a submission (however I was going to be posting him very soon) by oh-you-beauty.
