Måneskin wasted no time on the stage of Studio 8H, launching into their slinky, urgent earworm “Beggin” right away, lead singer Damiano David moving in a way that can only be described as Big Marc Bolan Energy.

The Italian glam rockers blasted onto the global music scene after winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 for Italy with their pop-rock track “Zitti e buoni.” But it was the addictiveness of “Beggin” that turned the retro foursome into bona fide superstars.

For their second SNL performance, Måneskin performed the invigorating “I Wanna Be Your Slave.”
