Teaming up with Ermal is Fabrizio Moro (real name Fabrizio Mobrici) another popular Italian recording artist.
Fabrizio had a number one hit back in 2007 with his song Pensa, has released eight studio albums – two of which have been certified gold – and has frequently performed to sold out crowds.
By pairing two big names together, Italy will no doubt be expecting big things – but can they live up to their reputation?
What is Italy’s Eurovision 2018 song called?
Non Mi Avete Fatto Niente was composed by Ermal, Fabrizio and a third Italian singer-songwriter, Andrea Febo.
The title’s English translation is You Did Not Do Anything To Me, and its subject matter is far more serious than you might expect from a Eurovision entry – with lyrics relating to war and terrorism across Europe and the Middle East.
The song has already been released as the lead single from both of the singers’ latest albums, and has been a number one hit in Italy. Will it prove as popular with the rest of Europe?
