Last Weekend, Marco Mengoni appeared on the X Factor Italy, a show he is very familiar with. Indeed Marco won the 2009 edition of the competition and has had since then enjoyed a successful career in his home country. His career took a more international direction when he won the San Remo Festival and was therefore chosen to represent Italy at the 58th Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö.

Marco Mengoni appeared on the show to help Franco-Lebanese singer songwriter and international star, Mika, to select the 3 contestants he would take in his team for the Live Shows. They both flew to Dublin for the competition and Mika came back to Italy with his 3  finalists.

Marco Mengoni has been very busy after the contest promoting his new album which reached the top spot in Italy and he is currently finishing his national tour this evening in Milan. November will see a new release in his discography, Pronto a correre il viaggo, a live album and film recorded this summer. Fans will be able to see the DVD content at the cinema  during a satellite live broadcast on 6 November at 8:30 PM across Italy.
