And finally the number 1!
1293 persons voted for this album and it was considered by our readers as the number 1 at the All Time ALBUMS CHART Top 150: L'amore si muove by Il Volo.
It is the fourth studio album by Il Volo and It was released internationally under the title Grande amore. The album is a mix of original songs and cover versions, in Italian, English and Spanish. The album debuted at number 2 in Italy and reached the top spot on its second week. It was certified double platinum in Italy but peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top Classical Albums and Billboard Latin Pop Albums, and at number 2 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart. It included the ESC song Grande Amore.
The band was considered in 2016 as band of year in our AWARDS but the album was only voted 3rd as Album of the year! The album winner was at the time for Conchita. Now the revenge has come and the album is now the #1 at the All Time ALBUMS CHART Top 150. Check the full list here: https://www.eurovisionontop.com/all-time-albums-chart-top150
Thanks to everyone who voted!
Our team decided to create a list of all the albums from ESC artists that every fan must have! We spent allmost one year creating it and because ESC 2020 is cancelled we decide to present it you now! Of course we couldn't consider all the artists and of course it might have some we forgot.There are some criteria that we had to consider such as the innovation of an album for its time, its creative aspect, its success, its importance in the history of music and also, not to repeat albums by the same artist. The task was hard and so there is a lot of responsibility. It is not easy to order albums with the tastes of more than 10 people, so we decided to leave the best 25 (in our opinion) in the hands of our readers. Voting took place in the Eurovision week of 2020!

The new song “COME UNA DANZA” marks the great return of a common story, of a complicity before and behind the scenes, 30 years later "Gente di Mare ".
Together they have already done a piece of the history of Italian music, two great artists with two immense and extraordinary repertoires, two Italian singers who with their songs have been dancing all over the world, but above all two friends: RAF and UMBERTO TOZZI today come back to sing together. Gente di Mare was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, placing 3rd. While not winning the Contest the song achieved considerable popularity, becoming a Top 10 hit in most parts of Continental Europe and Scandinavia in the summer of 1987 (#7 Switzerland, #8 Austria, #6 Sweden) and was included on the compilations of Winners and Classics produced to coincide with the Congratulations special in late 2005.
The new song, premiered on Sunday 21st in prime time at "Che tempo che fa" on Rai 1, anticipates the "Raf Tozzi" box that will be released on November 30th.
