Måneskin delivered a killer performance at Madison Square Garden. Over the course of the night, the Italian rock band, who won the Eurovision competition in 2021, performed several songs from their third studio album, Rush, as well as their cover of The Four Seasons‘ “Beggin‘,” which carried them from Eurovision to TikTok fame. Later in the night, they added their spin on a fan-favorite Kendrick Lamar hit.
This particular rendition of “Humble” was a lot more guitar-and-drum-driven but maintained the powerful spirit of the original version.

This performance wasn’t the first time the band displayed the influence they take from a multitude of genres. In an interview with Esquire, David revealed that this type of genre-fluidity comes naturally to him and the band.
“Not to brag, but for us, it comes easy,” he says. “We have four different and very strong backgrounds—Ethan and Thomas are very into rock n’ roll, punk, more classical, so they bring that energy. And I’m very, very into mainstream music, mainstream hooks, mainstream melodies. So I bring that kind of idea, and they put steroids in what I do.”
