UNITED KINGDOM – Speaking to FANAGE.IT, Ed Sheeran referred once again to Måneskin and Eurovision. He is not the only international star discussing Eurovision though this year. Stevie Van Zandt, aka Little Steven, already a fan of the Roman band since the night of the Rotterdam final (“Not bad! The last time I saw Eurovision there were all ballads. So it seems like a nice change “), he had himself photographed together with Damiano David, Victoria de Angelis, Thomas Raggi and Ethan Torchio.

In his interview, ED SHEERAN said about Måneskin and Jendrik
“What I think is beautiful about Måneskin is that I watch the Eurovision Song Contest every year and there are two types of songs: the playful ones we all love, funny, like the one from Germany where the boy (Jendrik) sings with a hot dog. and a hand on stage, and there are those serious songs that come up that are really crazy, but what iMåneskin had was the whole package. They didn’t just have a song, but a set of things. So they showed themselves to be a very close group, which played around Italy obtaining a great success, which had 4, 5, 6 very strong songs ready to be released.
This is the first thing I love about them: I think it’s great that they won, I think they should win, but I also think that if they didn’t win they would still be successful. But what I think is really important is the same thing that happened with “Despacito”, with BTS and K-Pop at the moment, with Manga pop and J-Pop etc: the world is becoming more universal than that. that listens and the language no longer means what it did 10 years ago: the English radio should play English music, the French one French music, the Italian one mostly Italian music, now you hear all kinds of languages everywhere.
In England, we have hits in native languages of the African continent, hits that come from Korea, Sweden, Finland, in Spanish, in Portuguese, in Italian. We had three Måneskin songs on the pop radio in England, the really really pop one. I think it’s wonderful that the language is expanding, that there are no barriers. That beautiful music is beautiful regardless of the language in which it is made”.
