They’re the reigning Eurovision champions, and now Måneskin will take to the contest’s stage once again as an interval act for the grand final of the 2022 competition.
The Italian band have had a jam-packed year since lifting the glass microphone, travelling and performing across the globe to an ever-growing fanbase. But now they’ll be coming back to where Europe first fell in love with them.
Måneskin to perform at Eurovision 2022 grand final
With such a busy scheduled, there had been speculation over whether Måneskin would have the time to come back to Eurovision. However, to the delight of Eurovision fans, Italian broadcaster RAI has now confirmed that the quartet will indeed take to the PalaOlimpico stage on Saturday 14 May.
Damiano David, Victoria De Angelis, Thomas Raggi, and Ethan Torchio will reprise their Eurovision 2021 winning song “Zitti e buoni”. They’ll also give the premiere performance of their new single “Supermodel”, which is set to be released on Friday 13 May.
Eurovision 2022 grand final opening and interval acts
In addition to Måneskin, the grand final of Eurovision will also see a number of other performances.
The show will open with a performance entitled “The Sound Of Peace”. Rock musicians Rockin ‘1000 will give a rendition of “Imagine” by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Starting from the streets of Turin, they’ll eventually make their way to the stage of PalaOlimpico arena, where they’ll be joined by hosts Laura Pausini, Alessandro Cattelan and Mika.
Laura Pausini and Mika will also both have their own interval performance.
Laura — among the best-known Italian singers globally — will take us on a journey through music, starting from her very first appearance at Sanremo and ending with her latest single “Scatola”. As she does so, she’ll be singing in five languages.
Mika has previously teased his interval act, noting “I will also perform and I am thinking of a provocative performance. It will be a surprise. Eurovision is not just a show, it is like an Expo but concentrated in a few days.”
Italy’s very first Eurovision winner from 1964, Gigliola Cinquetti, will also have the opportunity to perform.
