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.”

Bit late of the Grammys to recognise ABBA

And Måneskin have just won Best Rock Song in AMAs, too. Who else can claim to have won the ESC, the MTV, the AMA and, maybe, the grammys?

The very little impact in the fandom this is getting? i love how any generic entry about Ukraine or Spain or whatever garners like 3x more comments than this entry have.

For the most part, are most WiwiBloggs readers happy for Måneskin’s success? Are they regularly mentioned as ‘Eurovision winners’, or is that usually glossed over? Would most fans be annoyed if that wasn’t acknowledged, or is it a good thing that the contest can launch artists that become so popular?

I think ultimately most fans will be happy. I’m the months following their win it probably became slightly grating on some fans the over saturation of articles and what not related to them on fan sites etc.

But once all that died down I think most fans will be happy to say Maneskin got their initial boost into stardom because of Eurovision.

I will only see them as successful Eurovision products because I don’t really gravitate to their type of music and probably won’t discover them at all if not because of Eurovision. That said, they deserve all the success in the world and it’s great that they’ve inspired other countries to do better in the contest like Spain for example.

We’re much happier than we would had it been Salvador Sobral, who has sneered at the contest since three minutes after he won it.

it’s exciting because måneskin are pretty much the only actually relevant name who can tour major venues and who can claim multiple big hits in the best new artist category, so unless someone else bought the award they should be strong contenders!

Anitta is the current queen of Latin music. People be thinking that europe and the US are the only places in the world. Anitta tours everywhere, recently she filled a crowd at roskilde festival here in Denmark. Unlike Anitta, i doubt Måneskin could fill a crowd in Latin America or the US. I dont even dislike Måneskin but lets be real, they havent really had a hit since beggin, and i dont think they will anytime soon

You might be a bit out of the loop. Måneskin has already played to huge crowds in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico and are in the middle of a headlining tour of the US and Canada. Plus they’re pretty popular in Japan and played a sold out gig and festivals there this summer. Their success is hardly limited to Europe.

I’m actually seeing them live this thursday. I’m really excited. I never thought I’d ever get to see an ESC artist live since I don’t live in Europe

Grammy nominations are so random sometimes.

Good luck to them both!

I highly doubt either will win. Måneskin hasnt really had a hit since beggin, and there is no way in hell they are winning over someone like Anitta, who had one of the biggest songs of the year. And i honestly think Abba was just put in there for the sake of it, they propably wont attend so that means they definitely wont win

They get moderate airplay in the US. Last year I would sometimes hear I wanna be your slave, and supermodel also got some airplay as well. People here know more of their songs besides beggin

anitta had one hit after countless attempts, but “best new artist” is mainly judged based on bodies of work such a studio album, and i doubt anitta’s mcsongs will take her far. her album ‘versions of me’ was panned.

I don’t think any event can now be big enough for ABBA to attend. Perhaps the opening ceremony if Stockholm got the Olympics, but that’s not happening until 2040 at the earliest. They’ll all be their 90s then.

Knowing Grammys usually goes for safe and traditional they probably win Album of the year too!
I do not think the album is that good, it is decent but nothing more. Guessing nostalgia is big with Grammy juries too.
But congratulations none the less to them and all nominees..

Two years in a row for a “Record of the Year” nomination for ABBA. Which is weird, because both songs came out on the exact same day, but I’ll take it.

Also, Best New Artist is one of the best Grammys to win, so yay for Eurovision winners.

They’re trying to make up for snubbing ABBA for decades. Once upon a time they were looked down upon as a cheesy, cringy pop vocal group, the kind that was the punchline to a joke about the 70s. Now that their acclaim is unquestioned, the Academy wants to pretend they loved and respected them all along. A welcome change, but outrageous that it took this long to begin with.

Ridiculous that ABBA don’t have one Grammy while Kanye West has 24.
