Ukraine is their favorite in the competition and Ukraine gave Italy 12 points both from the jury and from the public! And Italians also gave their 12 points form the public to Ukraine! Such a nice detail! Love and congrats from Ukraine!

When Damiano asked to the girl if she will be with them... oh god so cute

Italy just took the revenge of so many robberies of great entries last decade.
4 zero points in a row is something I would never have expected

Damiano is such a sweet boy, he didn't miss a single congratulation and thanked every journalist, and then so politely and kindly praised the work of the organizer. He's a wonderful person

This is how an Italian Rock band can rule the world
Какие же они крутые! ❤️❤️❤️ Впервые за долгое время на Евровидение выиграли достойные исполнители!!! Вся Европа болела за Италию, такой отрыв по баллам зрителей просто рекорд
The drug "controversy" was so damn idiotic, i can't at how many tried to push that narrative. Tons of cameras around, his face was nowhere close enough to the table, the hands visible and up in the air (what is he, a vacuum?), not to say how the parents of another member of the group and their manager were there close to them. How dumb do they think a person can be that he would do something like that there instead of just going a sec to the toilet?? He was obviously just exulting and probably doing a story on instagram, i've seen the video somewhere on twitter.
Way to try to take away the focus from the victory of a group of 20 years old guys.
wow seems to me that the popular vote shows the reel winners!! Italy, Finland and Ukraine!!!!
Journalist: Should the live orchestra come back to Eurovision?
Damiano: Absolutely!
* limp wrist motion *
* drinks wine straight from bottle *

I love these guys so much! 😂🍷🇮🇹

This story about cocaine just confirmed what they say in that song:

"Parla, la gente purtroppo
Parla, non sa di che c**o parla
Tu portami dove sto a galla
Che qui mi manca l'aria!"

"People talk, however people talk
They talk, they don't know what the f**k they are talking about
Take me where I stay afloat
Because I can't breathe here!"

I'm speechless - Maneskin truly deserved their victory. Their reactions really made me cry. I'm so proud of Italy ❤🇮🇹

Just to say: Eurovision in Italy - what could be sexier?

Thank you that Italy called Ukraine its best competitor, it's so nice to hear! And for the 12 from the audience of Italy, in the finals and semi-finals, thanks to the audience in ALL 38 countries who voted for Ukraine, yes all countries gave points, this was not the case with Ruslana-2004 and Jamala-2016! Man, we're second in the audience! And 5th in general!

Hot hello from Kyiv, Ukraine 🍸

The fact that Ukraine is the only country that gave 24 points to Italy really means something. 🇺🇦 and 🇮🇹 know how to make music

Damiano: You got zero point we will remember it.

This press conference makes me sad. It's like Eurovision wants to change Maneskin so they can fit into their world instead of accepting them as who they are.

Ethan (the drummer) didn't say a word during the whole conference and He stole the event with their last sentence. <3

Thank you for pointing out Ukraine as a favourite song!!!! 8:10 It is second according to the public! Congratulations! You've got Ukrainan love both from jury and from public! Btw, if not the f... juries, Italy would still win and Ukraine would be second!
Love how the haters try in every way to get them disqualified.....that question was so disrespectful....congratulations 👏🏽👏🏽

"I don't use drugs" while sipping alcohol and being drunk, Damanio is a legend lol, I love all of their personalities and the fact that they used the real lyrics!

To those who complain they are drunk: wouldn't you drink (doesn't have to be a lot of alcohol) if you were a winner???

Bianca Maria:
Those who say that Italy didn't deserve to win because they sang a rock song, they shouted, they had ugly makeup, they were dressed like a circus, you have no idea what Eurovision means, what music means, what art means, what freedom means! Why are you still watching this contest?
Hoseok Is My Hope
Hoseok Is My Hope:
The question about the Cocaine! And even after Damiano answered clearly, they kept shouting! Disrespectful and shameless.
The journalist from the NYT saying "Italy had a hard time with corona".
Look in your own backyard, dude.

Everyone talking about the cocaine thing which he clearly wasn't but no one mentioning the fact they sang the uncensored version

Did they really think that someone would use drugs in the middle of a show aired all over Europe? Hilarious! 🤣
Congratulations Italy and Maneskin ❤️
Well done! Finally a kickass song that's not chanson, a ballad or schlager!
This interview is everything i expect out of a rock group and more
26:39 Go_A said it too, they didn't came for the victory, they came to share Ukrainian music and Ukrainian traditions. Eventually both bands rocked on the top of the televote🇮🇹🇺🇦 Be generous and the Universe will return. Congratulations to both of them!

I tried my best to support Italy, literally fell in love with this group so much that I even changed the screensaver on my phone, and the song played all day on headphones for 4 days in a row

With love from Ukraine🇺🇦

Daniel Roach:
The fact that someone from the press confronted them on “snorting cocaine” seems to be the lowest of lows. Seems like they’re desperate for a negative news story to overpower the positivity of Italy actually winning and how far they’ve come. 🇮🇹🇮🇹
Edit: Organisers made Italy take a drug test due to accusations and Italy passed the test, proving they didn’t take drugs.
Elena S.
Elena S.:
Can we just appreciate how the host stopped any further discussion about the drug use? Like she wasn't taking aaany crap, she shot that down right away when people started yelling more crap
I discovered Maneskin almost 4 years ago, when they were hardly even recognized in Italy. And I’m not even italian:) always knew they’ve got potential! Well done guys! Monteverde power!
I discovered Måneskin at the beginning of the April, right before Easter. It was such a pleasure to stream your songs while waiting for the final. You bring great message to the Esc and the whole world. Your winning was well deserved, congratulations and be yourselves forever ❤❤❤

ethan is literally so precious argh-- they all are sooo cool also the ✨ gender envy✨
Victorias smile is amazing
The question about cocaine was so disrespectful, out of place and showed how unprofessional this "journalist" was. Repeating fake news during the official press conference?! Shame on you
It's been a very long time since a good song won the Eurovision. Very glad for Italy, it was in my top 3 favourites this year.

For those who are spreading the news about Damiano: they talked about it in the press conference, it's a fake news. They even talked about it in they Ig stories saying: "We really are against drugs and we never used cocaine. We are ready to get tasted, cause we have nothing to hide".
L S:
What I like most of them is that they're so kind and polite to everyone and how they talk about the contest
Enna Bovary
Enna Bovary:
Even if they were taking drugs, it was such disrespect and unethical on the part of that journalist. It seems like he wanted to change direction from victory to something completely different and make them unworthy of victory.
1:10 i love this interviewer, the whole group looked so comfortable with her
Alex Fox
Alex Fox:
I love those 30 minutes of wise words of drunk Damiano <3 The best band on Eurovision, they have great songs. And this interview... Good old rock atmosphere :D It's been a long time since the interview made me laugh and curious at the same time. Amazing. I didn't expect such a great discovery from Eurovision. Just amazing. I am waiting for more<3<3
Love this pressconferention. Damiano is a little bit drunk, Victoria try to save the situation but he don't give up. 😄 Love these guys! ❤

If the Manneskins had dressed classically, no one would have thought about drugs. Power of prejudice
Victoria gives the best answers. She should definitely become the band’s spokesperson.
