Eurovision’s Maneskin’s VMA performance censored after wardrobe malfunction

MTV were forced to cut away from Eurovision winners Måneskin's performance at the VMAs on Sunday night after the bassist suffered a major wardrobe malfunction.

A few moments into the performance the TV network cut away from the stars and showed visuals of empty chairs.

This was because their bassist top appeared to fall off, causing her breasts to be fully exposed.

According to Page Six, Victoria De Angelis had moved to the front of the stage as a crowd of dancers surrounded the Eurovision winners.

As everyone jumped and danced, her top dropped down around her waist, completely exposing her.

The star didn't let this faze her though and the 22-year-old simply kept playing the bass, causing the cameras to censor the performance.

Fans, who had no idea about the wardrobe blunder, took to Twitter to share their confusion.

One person wrote: “MTV disappointed you chose not to show performance!! Repeated empty seats played! What’s wrong you!? Ruined their performance. Owe Maneskin an apology!”

While another penned: “I mean, Nicki can simulate masturbating on stage, but Victoria of Maneskin can’t show a covered nipple? seriously VMAS??

A third commented: “Kinda f***ed that you cut them off just because Vic’s top, you didn’t even change the camera to the other three members just fully censored them. unfair.”

Måneskin are an Italian glam rock band who won Eurovision in 2021.

Seven cities have been shortlisted as potential hosts for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 – Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle.

Ukraine's act Kalush Orchestra won the 2022 contest with their track Stefania, with hosting duties usually passed down to the winning country.

However, with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, it was decided that the UK would host instead, with our act Sam Ryder placing second.

His track Space Man blew audiences away, with the UK accumulating a massive 466 points – and within that, the third-highest jury vote in the history of the competition.

Kate Phillips, BBC’s Director Unscripted Content said: “We would like to thank all of the cities and regions that submitted bids to host next year’s Eurovision Song Contest. We have seven fantastic cities who we are taking through to the next round."

The cities will now be asked to develop their bids in more detail and BBC and EBU will determine the winner by the region that scores the highest against an agreed evaluation criteria.

The winning city will need to have a suitable venue and sufficient space to deliver the requirements of the Song Contest, must be able to financially commit to hosting the event, and must be able to showcase Ukrainian culture.
