2013 ITALIA’S GOT TALENT

italia's got talent

Also this year the Italian version of “Talent show” is over. As you know, this TV show’s format is similar to “American Idol”, born years ago in England, and based on the discovery of new talent, in any discipline.
In this fourth edition of Italy’s Got Talent, started on January 12, last Saturday during the finals, the sixteen finalists have competed to let viewers choose the winner.
As in the past, the three judges have been Maria De Filippi, Gerry Scotti and Rudy Zerbi and the presenters Simon Annicchiarico and Belén Rodríguez (who participated despite being pregnant).
Among them were some who really deserved to win and I want to mention:


Walter Orfei Malachikhine, a sixteen year old boy belonging to the homonymous circus family, which struck the judges with his acrobatic numbers.

Sara Venerucci and Danilo Decembrini, a pair of artistic skaters, three-time world champions.

Ripalta Bufo, a good 22-year old soprano from Puglia who has performed a difficult song from “La Traviata”.

Brothers Lo Tumulo (Daniele Sportelli and Elio Angelini), a comedy duo who made us laugh through a macabre comic sense, parodying and joking about death.

Lo Tumulo
The duo Los Hermanos Macana, consisting of two twin brothers (Enrique e Guillermo De Fazi) from Argentina, talented dancers of a “passionate” tango.

Anyway, at televoting among the finalists Adomako Daniel has triumphed, a 21 year old native of Ghana, who has competed in a lyrical piece, a version of “At Last” by Etta James, giving a display of all the nuances of his particular voice.  He is assigned the expected prize of € 100,000. Daniel had already tried his luck at the X-Factor show, a few years ago, but was rejected.

DANIEL ADOMAKO
An important victory for the 21 year old guy from Brescia, who has always had to struggle, even with his father, to show his talent and desire to succeed. He impressed the audience by his celestial voice but by humility and kindness arising from a slight effeminacy.

TALENT SHOW “AMICI”

It’s a long time that an Italian and annual TV talent show, called “AMICI” (friends), is having a huge success. The show presented by the well-liked presenter Maria de Filippi, is a kind of school where a group of young singers and dancers, chosen during a previous long selections, compete each other to reach the final. In school, in addition to a fixed number of singing and dancing teachers, also participate record companies experts, famous dancers and characters of the show. During the final, the votes are entitled to teachers, to a team of experts and to viewers at home (which vote via SMS or phone). For the winners there are several different awards, also if a contract with a “record company” and one with a note “dance company”, are the most sought by the young artists. It is not the first time that a winner of “AMICI” then becomes famous, as the case of the singer Alessandra Amoroso, who later even won the renowned “Festival di Sanremo”. The most talented artists, by now famous, often participate as guests in subsequent editions of this talent show, and during the final on Sunday last, among the three guests invited to the transmission, there also was Sharon Stone. The famous actress has followed with interest the individual performances, often amazed by the skill of the young and attractive competitors. But the emotion that even brought her to weep, while listening at Alessandra Amoroso, has caused more stir and headlines. Perhaps, it is due to gospel sung by Alessandra Amoroso, who chose an unusual version of the song “If You Do not Know Me by Now” of Simply Red, an English lyric that Stone has understood, considered that most were Italian songs; or simply because after so many good performances, she has realized that there are around very young people already with so much talent.
How can she be wrong! For sure, attending a show with a magnificent orchestra where no one sings in playback, and where all the admirable performers are in their early twenties, can cause a big thrill in everyone!
