Måneskin's win was Italy's third victory in the popular contest.
Måneskin won Eurovision 2021 on the Rotterdam stage. The Italian Rock band was born just over 5 years ago in Rome and composed of Damiano David, Victoria De Angelis, Thomas Raggi and Ethan Torchio. Italy has won The Eurovision three times. In the 1964 edition held in Copenhagen, with the Gigliola Cinquetti. In 1990 in Zagreb with Toto Cutugno. And now the Måneskin.
Rumors raised a speculation on the lead singer. Claims found in mainstream French Media raised a footage of David leaning awkwardly over a table during the live TV show. The lead singer immediately rejected the claim and he voluntarily took a drug test. “We consider the matter closed,” the European Broadcasting Union said in a statement.
