Olivia Rodrigo won Best New Artist at the 2022 Grammy Awards. And today Måneskin moved one step closer to following in her footsteps in 2023 by securing one of the 10 nominations in the same category.
Writing on Instagram Stories, the band were clearly ecstatic.
“OMG! We can’t believe our eyes and ears but we just got nominated as Best New Artist at the #Grammys. We really couldn’t be more THANKFUL and excited about it.”
The Italian four-piece are up against Anitta, Omar Apollo, DOMi & JD Beck, Muni Long, Samara Joy, Latto, Tobe Nwigwe, Molly Tuttle and Wet Leg.

ABBA — the Eurovision 1974 winners from Sweden — secured four nominations, including the coveted Record of the Year for “Don’t Shut Me Down” and Album of the Year for Voyage.
They’re also up for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance (“Don’t Shut Me Down”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (Voyage).
Voyage, their first album in 40 years, gave the group their first Grammy nomination ever in 2022 when “I Still Have Faith in You” was nominated for Record of the Year. It lost to Silk Sonic’s “Leave The Door Open”
Voyage was not meant to be a complete overhaul of ABBA’s sound that attempts to bring them in line with contemporary music. Instead, running throughout all of it is an atmosphere of nostalgia, which harks back to the ABBA so many people loved in the ‘70s and early ‘80s.
In their preview article of the album, Rolling Stone magazine said Voyage is “on par with their classic 1970s run. It evokes the days when the Norse gods ruled the radio, combining two of the Seventies’ hottest trends: heartbreak and sequin-studded pantsuits.”
