The worldwide sensations will really be placing the “world” right into a heavyweight lineup that additionally consists of Metallica, Mariah Carey, Mickey Guyton, Jonas Brothers and Charlie Puth.
It’s the newest high-profile look for the glam rockers, who’ve rocketed to worldwide fame since successful Eurovision with their tune “Zitti e buoni” in 2021. Indeed, Måneskin — which is rounded out by guitarist Thomas Raggi and drummer Ethan Torchio — is bringing rock again with bangers akin to “I Wanna Be Your Slave,” which received them the Best Alternative award on the VMAs.

David, De Angelis and Raggi all met as highschool college students in Rome, with Torchio coming from close by Frosinone, earlier than forming Måneskin in 2016. They carried out as avenue buskers in Rome earlier than happening to end second on “X Factor Italia” in 2017.
Her expertise on the VMAs apart, De Angelis has had no points being the one woman within the group. “I really feel handled equally, because it ought to be,” she stated. “I don’t see any distinction due to my gender, so it’s all good. We’re like household.”
In reality, it was the bassist who got here up with their band identify. “We had to check in on this music competitors, however we didn’t have a reputation but,” stated De Angelis, 22. “So we didn’t have time to consider a correct identify. So I simply stated some random phrases in Danish, as a result of I’m half Danish, and we picked Måneskin, which suggests ‘moonlight,’ however [that] has nothing to do with something.”
Still, the celebrities are positively aligning for Måneskin today. While in New York for Global Citizen Festival, they’re hoping to do some classic buying and possibly check out the San Gennaro Feast in Little Italy. And they have already got a favourite Italian restaurant within the Big Apple: Emilio’s Ballato in Nolita.
And the Rome-based rockers will be practising their English, which has been steadily bettering. “Having the prospect to spend a bit extra time right here within the US has helped,” stated David.

“We spent some months in LA, and it’s about this faux stardom system and way of life that lots of people have [there],” stated De Angelis.
“We simply observed and met lots of people that actually have been involved solely about the best way that they appeared or being in the precise locations, proper events, amongst celebrities or stuff like that. We discovered it ridiculous.”
