In recent weeks Eurovision winners Måneskin have blitzed through the United States, going coast-to-coast with their unique brand of rock ‘n roll chic. They appeared on massive TV shows in New York and Los Angeles, opened for The Rolling Stones in Las Vegas and attended the American Music Awards in Hollywood, where they were nominated for Favourite Trending Song.
And on Tuesday the Italian four-piece will climb yet another rung on the path to global super stardom by helping to present nominations for the 64th GRAMMY Awards. You can watch the ceremony live on the Recording Academy’s Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube accounts from 09:00 Los Angeles / 17:00 London / 18:00 Torino. Or just stick around and watch it below.
Other presenters include global pop sensations BTS; country-pop singer Carly Pearce; singer and Billboard Hot 100 songwriter Tayla Parx; Grammy winner H.E.R.; and the broadcaster (also known Oprah Winfrey’s best friend) Gayle King.
The invitation to announce the nominees for the Grammy Awards shows the respect that the Recording Academy have for Måneskin. It can be read as an endorsement of their music and suggests those in the know think they have staying power.
Fans are also wondering aloud if the band might land a nomination themselves. This is not a given. However, there is a bit of precedent. Last year’s nomination presenters included Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion and BTS, and they received multiple nominations between them.
We’re sooo excited to help announce the @RecordingAcad #GRAMMYs nominations on Tuesday, Nov. 23.— MåneskinOfficial (@thisismaneskin) November 23, 2021

Forbes magazine is predicting that Måneskin could secure a nomination in the Best New Artist category. It predicts the following eight names: Celeste, Gabby Barrett, Glass Animals, The Kid Laroi, Måneskin, Olivia Rodrigo, Polo G and Walker Hayes.
It describes Olivia Rodrigo — who has topped the charts globally with her songs “drivers license” and “Good 4U” — as “the presumptive winner,” adding that “if she loses, it will be rather shocking.”
Other acts it thinks could sneak into the mix are: 24kGoldn, Ava Max, Blackpink, Finneas, Jimmie Allen, Rina Sawayama, Saweetie and SG Lewis.
