Can’t stop, won’t stop. That seems to be the mantra of Eurovision 2021 winners Måneskin, as they’ve added two big performances to their schedule: one on Saturday Night Live, the other at Coachella.
Måneskin: Saturday Night Live welcomes Eurovision winners
This Saturday — that’s January 22 — the Italian foursome will, once again, appear on American television. Damiano, Ethan, Thomas and Victoria will perform as special musical guests on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. NBC is, of course, the same network airing the American Song Contest from March 21, a fact that may give it extra motivation to celebrate the latest Eurovision winners.
The band previously appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, another NBC product.
For those of you who don’t know, Saturday Night Live is a long-running and storied comedy sketch show. It regularly skewers political figures and celebrities, and parodies news and trends of the week. The show boasts alums like Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell, the star of the Netflix hit movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.
Each episode includes a special musical guest. The week after Måneskin it’ll be Katy Perry.
During all of their TV appearances in the US, the band have sung “Beggin'” — their cover of the Frankie Valli original. The song was nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Trending Song and cracked the Top 30 of the Billboard charts.
Despite that success, Måneskin fans are hopeful the band will perform something else on SNL. Our personal pick would be their original song “I Wanna Be Your Slave” or perhaps an Italian-language track like “Zitti e buoni”.
Måneskin to perform on the Sunday of Coachella
It’s not all about TV, of course. The band have also landed a coveted spot at Coachella — the musical extravaganza at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
They’re performing on the two Sundays — that’s April 17 and 24. Ye — the artist formerly known as Kanye West — will headline the Sunday shows. Other Sunday acts include Doja Cat, Fatboy Slim, and Billie Eilish’s brother FINNEAS.
Harry Styles will headline the Friday shows, which also feature Lil Baby and Carly Rae Jepsen, while Billie Eilish will headline the Saturday shows, which also feature Megan Thee Stallion and 21 Savage.
