The audience is traditionally welcome at the last rehearsals, but the fans who bought a ticket had to do without Måneskin. Instead of the four band members, stand-ins took the stage to playback two of the group’s songs. They were ejected afterwards.
It is not known why Måneskin skipped rehearsals. It may have something to do with an injury that singer Damiano David sustained. The Eurovision organization reported Friday evening that the group will certainly play in the final on Saturday.
