Måneskin continued their meteoric rise to global recognition with the band being invited to reveal nominations for the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
Though notably missing bassist Victoria de Angelis, the remaining trio of Damiano David, Thomas Raggi and Ethan Torchio took turns revealing a slew of nominees for the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, due to be held in January 2022.
Sadly, the Italian rockstars weren’t given a nod of their own in any categories in this year’s awards, but given their stratospheric rise since their Eurovision triumph in Rotterdam six months ago, perhaps we don’t have to wait too long to see the band get this ultimate recognition. At least, the awards’ official website featured the group’s rise in Europe and the USA in an incredible 2021 for the Roman quartet.
In a live-streamed event from Los Angeles, Damiano David introduced the nominees of the categories of Best Orchestral Performance, Best Opera Recording, Best Choral Performance and Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance.
Thomas Raggi introduced the Best Classical Instrumental Solo and Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, with Ethan Torchio revealing the Best Classical Compedium and Best Contemporary Classical Composition.

In recent weeks, Måneskin have taken to the limelight Stateside, propelled by the success of their cover of Frankie Valli’s “Beggin'” from The X Factor in 2017. The band performed on the Jimmy Fallon show and supported The Rolling Stones in Las Vegas. In the interim, the band also returned to Europe to perform at the MTV EMAs in Budapest last week, winning Best Rock.
