Laura Pausini Will Be a Guest at Sanremo

Laura Pausini will be a guest star on the first night of the Italian music festival Sanremo (February 9).

Pausini is scheduled to sing two songs: "La Solitudine" and the title track from her newly released album Simili.

As a guest this week on Italy's Radio Festival, the only web radio station dedicated to the Sanremo music festival, Pausini spoke about the importance of Sanremo, stating: "It's the most important music festival in the world." We don't disagree.
