The Eurovision winners brought that track, which was originally made popular by the American group The Four Seasons in the ‘60s, to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
Wearing matching black suits, the band delivered an energetic version of the singing, which began with frontman Damiano David singing a drawn-out, a cappella intro. Watch footage of Måneskin’s AMAs 2021 performance below now.

Meanwhile, Måneskin supported The Rolling Stones in Las Vegas earlier this month and won Mick Jagger’s seal of approval after their set. The iconic frontman shared a photo with the Italian group on Twitter, captioning the post: “Great night in Vegas with @thisismaneskin.”
Jagger isn’t the first rock icon to hail the band. Earlier this year, Iggy Pop teamed up with them for a new version of their single ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’. Of the collaboration, Måneskin said: “It was such an honour that Iggy loved our music and wanted to work with us. It was touching seeing him sing ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ live in front of us, it was very powerful to see such a big artist being so open and friendly.”
