The penultimate night of Sanremo 2024 brought buckets of fun and tears in equal measure with some of the best performances to ever grace the stage of Teatro Ariston seen today.
The 30 artists sang cover songs of iconic Italian or international tunes from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and noughties. The artists could perform with an notable instrumentalist or with an acclaimed Italian or international singer.
If you missed Night 1, Night 2 and Night 3 drama and standouts we've got you covered. This far into the competition you'd require a mere 20 hours to catch up on the events of Sanremo 2024 before the final evening.
Voting for the cover performances consisted of televote (34%), combined press jury (33%) and radio jury (33%).
