The Sanremo Festival is over. Or rather, with the final evening the entire part of the show on television ended. For a few days there will still be talk about the race, from the winner Angelina Mango, to the controversy over the televoting for which Geolier would have won instead, up to the final report cards on the last Sanremo hosted with Amadeus. The last moments of this Sanremo portray the host leaving the Ariston together with Fiorello .
For those who spend a lot of their life on social media, however, there is a huge treasure that is left behind every year at the Sanremo Festival: i m . Hours and hours of live shows, dozens of singers and guests of all kinds always leave a decent archive from which to draw for the months following the Festival. In some cases for years. Where's Bugo?
Stash memes by The Kolors
A long line of memes came from a character who remained a bit behind the scenes at the Sanremo Festival. Apart from a song designed to be danced in all tourist villages throughout Italy, there hasn't been much talk about The Kolors in recent days. Despite this, Stash's face has become one of the most viral memes on X (formerly Twitter). In his latest performance Stash also attached some of these memes to his guitar.
How did Geolier not win the Sanremo Festival with 60% of the votes in televoting
The reason? None. Simply, a photo of him with a smile with an uncertain number of teeth taken this summer was exhumed. Her almost indecipherable expression attracted the attention of thousands of users who began to beat her in every way. Legend has it that one of Amadeus' jackets was created from an embroidered motif with Stash's face replicated thousands of times.
John Travolta memes
In a Sanremo decidedly free from controversy, John Travolta was in the end almost necessary. His appearance where he listlessly dances the Ballo del Qua Qua was defined by Fiorello as one of the “most terrifying gags on Italian television”. Travolta has already been the protagonist of memes with the Pulp Fiction clip in which he looks around disorientated. From “Confused Travolta” to “Qua Qua Travolta”.
Geolier also provided a good basis for memes . In one of his performances he was filmed with a discreetly surprised look . We don't know if he was actually surprised by something or if social media gave a few too many interpretations.
