‘False’ Måneskin received a boo at the dress rehearsal of the Eurovision Song Contest

Last night the dress rehearsal for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest took place in Turin. A performance by Måneskin, the Italian rock band that won last year, was planned. However, the public got stand-ins instead, and they were anything but happy about that.

Måneskin’s “false” members were chosen from the show’s backing dancers. They lip-synched a song, but were greeted with booing from the audience. He had clearly hoped for a performance by the real Måneskin, as is scheduled for tonight’s final.

Presenter Alessandro Cattelan tried to boost the atmosphere with a joke. “You are lucky”, he said to the audience, “because you were one of the first to hear Måneskin’s new single.” Result? Just more frustration and louder booing “Stop it, it’s not their fault,” Cattelan said of the invaders. In the end they got applause from different parts of the audience, but the performance was not a resounding success.

An interview with the fake Damiano, which will probably take place tonight with the real frontman, was also not conducive to the atmosphere. Cattelan asked, among other things, how the collaboration with the famous Swedish producer Max Martin had gone for the new single supermodel, which the band will be playing tonight. Several spectators left the room.

Why Måneskin himself did not perform, although they are present in Turin, the organization of the festival did not explain.
