The Eurovision champions joke about drug allegations during last year’s final
The Maneskin lead singer advised Eurovision attendees “not to get too close to the table”, citing allegations he was caught using drugs with a camera at last year’s competition.
The Italian rock band had “strongly denied allegations of drug use” that surfaced on social media after Damiano David appeared to have bent over a table in the competition’s green room in front of the camera.
After Maneskin’s win last year, David denied using drugs and said he bent over because another band member broke a glass at their feet.
The European Broadcasting Union later confirmed that the frontman had received a negative result on a drug test since the event.
During the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 final, the reigning champions took the stage to perform their new single Supermodel.
After their powerful performance, a limping David was asked to offer advice to this year’s contestants, after which he quipped: “Two things. Have fun and don’t get too close to the table boys.”
Maneskin won the top prize with Zitti e buoni, which scored 524 points, ahead of the French entry Voila by Barbara Pravi and the song Tout l’Univers by Gjon’s Tears, which took third place.
Singer-songwriter Mika also took the stage and performed an incredible medley of songs including Love Today, Grace Kelly and Happy Ending surrounded by heart flags, a floating heart balloon while dancing on the piano.
