Måneskin will perform at the Grand Final of Eurovision 2022 🇮🇹06 May 2022 at 16:00 CEST
The reigning champions of the Eurovision Song Contest will make a welcome return to its stage on Saturday 14 May. Italian band Måneskin are responsible for bringing the Contest back to their country, and now they’ll get to remind Europe precisely why we’re all turning in to Turin this year.
Måneskin have become quite accustomed to playing arenas since their Eurovision triumph at the Rotterdam Ahoy in 2021. The PalaOlimpico will be serving as the latest stop in what has become a packed schedule of grand-scale gigs for the foursome. But it will of course be a very special one for both Måneskin and our Italian broadcaster, with last year’s win having launched the group on an international scale, and brought the Contest back to Italy for the first time in over three decades.
For their performance at the Grand Final, Måneskin will be treating viewers to the live premiere of their brand-new single Supermodel, which is being released the day before, on Friday 13 May.
The band, comprised of vocalist Damiano David, bassist Victoria De Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi, and drummer Ethan Torchio, first rose to prominence after finishing in second place in the 11th season of the Italian talent show The X Factor in 2017. Their international breakthrough came when the foursome won Sanremo in their native Italy in 2021, going on to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest that May with the song Zitti E Buoni.
Since then, Måneskin have enjoyed chart success all over the world with I Wanna Be Your Slave and Beggin’, with the former reaching a peak of number 5 in the UK, and the latter climbing as high as number 13 in the US.
They currently have more than 4.5 billion listens to their name across all digital platforms, and have amassed ten diamond, 185 platinum and 42 gold records globally.
