Eurovision 2022 viewers concerned for Maneskin’s Damiano David over leg injury:
However, some viewers of the 2022 competition expressed concern over lead singer Damiano David, after spotting that he appeared to be in considerable pain with a leg injury.
Following their performance, Damiano looked like he was limping as he spoke about working on Baz Luhrmann upcoming Elvis Presley biopic.
As the group walked off stage after performing one more song, Damiano leant on one of his bandmates for support.
Several people on Twitter speculated what could be wrong, with one person claiming that the musician injured his leg during a photoshoot earlier in the day, and is said to have not wanted to go on stage with crutches.
A number of Eurovision fans dubbed the singer ‘poor Damiano’, with one tweeting: ‘I hope his leg recovers.’
‘Poor Damiano’s really struggling on that leg, bless him, looks really painful,’ another said.
One concerned fan wrote: ‘Poor Damiano with his clearly painful leg,’ while another said: ‘Poor Damiano…hope his leg gets better!’
One praised the singer for putting on a brave face despite the injury, writing: ‘Props for Damiano for keeping it professional even after hurting his leg.’
Despite the injury, Damiano singer still took the opportunity to make a daring joke about that controversial moment after they were crowned the champions of the competition.
As the 2021 final unfolded, footage began circulating online showing Damiano bending towards the table which led many to speculate that he was using cocaine.
On Saturday’s grand final, he was asked if he had any advice for the winners of this year’s competition, to which he joked: ‘Have fun and don’t get close to the table.’
Eurovision 2022 was a rollercoaster of a competition, with UK entry Sam Ryder absolutely smashing his performance and picking up the points to prove it.
While the UK had its best result in years, Sam fell to Ukraine at the final hurdle, coming in second place after narrowly beating Spain.
