The Sanremo 2024 final, which crowned Angelina Mango the winner, was followed on Rai1 by an average of 14 million 301 thousand viewers, equal to a 74.1% share . The average share is the highest since 1995, when the last evening of the festival hosted by Pippo Baudo, with Anna Falchi and Claudia Koll, obtained 75.22%.
The first part of the last evening of the Amadeus festival obtained 17 million 281 thousand spectators equal to 70.8%; the second 11 million 724 thousand equal to 78.8%.

The first part was watched by 14 million 423 thousand viewers, equal to a 62.1% share; the second of 9 million 490 thousand equal to 73.7%.
Angelina Mango won the Sanremo festival with 40.3% of the total preferences, considering the three juries (televoting, Press Room, radio jury). In second place Geolier with 25.2%, in third Annalisa with 17.1%, in fourth Ghali with 10.5%, in fifth Irama with 6.9%.
Loredana Bertè, with the song Pazza, wins the Mia Martini Critics Award , named after her sister.

Angelina Mango with La Noia wins Sanremo 2024
The Mia Martini Critics' Award went to Loredana Bertè with the song Pazza; Angelina Mango also received the Lucio Dalla Press Room Award, with 22 votes, and the Giancarlo Bigazzi Award for best musical composition. The Sergio Bardotti Award for best text was awarded to Fiorella Mannoia with Mariposa. The avalanche of preferences sent televoting into a tailspin: artists and fans reported problems receiving confirmation messages. But Rai – after the appropriate checks – specified that the large quantity of preferences had been duly acquired and that no vote would have been lost. To close his last festival Amadeus wanted his friend Fiorello next to him again: after the small hours with Viva Rai2! and the incursions at the Ariston, the showman soon took the stage with a revisitation of the Man in a tailcoat on a mash-up between Domenico Modugno and Billie Jean by Michael Jackson, with a luminous costume with LED inserts, with the dancers of the Company Ukrainian hi-tech dance from Kiev.
Festival of appeals and dedications
The final passed away with a dedication, an appeal, a hug to the mothers in the audience. BigMama shouted her Anger is not enough for you “to all the insecure people, to those who feel ashamed: always believe in yourself, believe in your dreams and if you want to dance, dance”. Gazzelle dedicated his Tutto Qui to “Giovanna, a person I miss very much”. Dargen D'Amico sang Onda Alta and then kisses Mara Venier: Amadeus thanked him “for bringing joy and at the same time profound reflections”. Negramaro proposed Ricominciamo tutto and shouted: “Long live music, long live freedom, long live peace”. Mahmood convinced with his Gold Tracksuit and then thanked “all the artists who gave us their vision of the world in a totally free way on this stage. Long live differences and freedom of thought always and in any case”. Ghali, who stands out with Casa mia, had the alien Rich who accompanied him suggest his 'Stop the genocide'. And while Tedua was performing on the Costa Smeralda, Palestinian flags and signs with a stop to the genocide and a ceasefire appeared among the audience. Emma's thoughts went to her father Rosario, who passed away in 2022: “He was the first to throw me on stage: I promise him that I will stay there as long as I have breath in my body”. The Sad raised a green, purple and blue flag: “It does not represent political ideals, but the values of the fight against discrimination, violence, hatred, abuse and sexism. It is only the first step to change Italy at its best if we all want it.” Mr. Rain left flowers on one of the Two Swings on stage, with a dedication to “all the people who have emptiness inside”. At 21, Sangiovanni understood that “defeat and victory aren't really important, but victory is feeling good or at least trying”.
