Get used to it: Måneskin are officially headlining events alongside the likes of BTS, Coldplay and Camila Cabello. On Saturday evening the Eurovision 2021 winners performed at Global Citizen Live — the massive concert that took place across Lagos, New York City, Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, London, Mumbai, and Sydney. Måneskin joined from the stage in Paris, which also welcomed Doja Cat and Ed Sheeran, among others.

The Global Citizen movement says it seeks to bring together 100 million “action-taking global citizens to help achieve our vision of ending extreme poverty by 2030.” People who donate to charities, sign petitions and watch videos on its web site earn tickets to the massive festival, which is also live-streamed around the world.

This year’s music festival was a call to action to end extreme poverty ahead of the G20 gathering of wealthy nations in October and the COP26 UN Climate conference in November.

Måneskin at Global Citizen Live in Paris

Måneskin — who have topped the charts across Europe and even cracked the Top 30 in the United States — want to use their newfound platform for good.

Writing on Instagram, they expressed how touched they were to be included on the bill: “Honoured to be part of this meaningful event and to use our privilege to take action.”

And they did that in fierce pink performance wear. In our clip from the audience above, Thomas can be seen wearing a pink blazer — open, naturally — while Damiano and Victoria appear to be wearing the pink and black fringe jackets from their recent Gucci Aria campaign. Apparently the items just weren’t for the advert — but for the long-haul. It’s a nod to sustainability that fits with the values of Global Citizen.

They delivered their Eurovision-winner “Zitti e buoni”, “For Your Love” and their Wiwi Jam hit “I Wanna Be Your Slave”.

Among the audience’s favourites was their 2017 cover of “Beggin'”, which British viewers will have had on their mind. Just moments before the band sang it in Paris, Olympic champion swimmer Adam Peaty was dancing to it (or rather the Måneskin arrangement of it performed by a live band) on the BBC show Strictly Come Dancing.

Another highlight came when Damiano covered Billie Eilish’s “Bury a Friend.” Before starting the number a cappella, he looked to the camera and said: “Hey Billie. I know you’re in L.A., but this is for you.”

He also made a heart with his hands.

I love them, and I also really love Billie, but don’t get me wrong. That cover was NOT it… just do covers of heavy metal Songs, but bury a friend? Seriously??

Thank u, next!

I know this is off topic but Salvador Sobral is nominated for a Latin Grammy for Best Engineered Album (bpm). The other artists that are nominated are

  1. Carolina Deslandes for Best Long Form Music Video (Mulher). She participated in Festival da Cançao 2021.
  2. Julio Iglesias for Record of the Year (Bohemio with Andrés Calamaro). Represented Spain in 1970.

Victoria de Angelis was warm again on stage and performed “topless”. I liked it a lot. But she also has great sporty breasts.

Ok great to see them performing in Paris and so I’d love to see Barbara performing in Italy if it was not so difficult for her.
