France: Barbara Pravi would not accept victory if Maneskin were canceled!

An interesting interview was given by the runner-up of this year’s Eurovision, Barbara Pravi, to the Belgian newspaper Sudinfo. Among the things she mentioned, she stated that in no case would she accept the victory in the contest, if the Maneskin were canceled due to the alleged incident with the drugs in the green room.

Following a video that quickly circulated on social media, Damiano, the Maneskin lead singer, was accused of crouching while he was in the green room. What was said was that he was currently using drugs. This question was asked at the press conference following their victory at the Ahoy Arena. As soon as the band returned to Italy, they tested for toxicological substances, which turned out to be negative, so the EBU considered the matter over, after its own research in the area, but also through the cameras that were there.

Of course, if the allegations were substantiated then Maneskin’s victory would automatically be called into question. Barbara Pravi, who was second behind the Italian band, clarified that there was no way to accept such a victory, even if the entry of Italy was canceled.

If they were eliminated, I would never accept first place. The Måneskin were chosen by the public, they are well known and that what they do is very nice, so it is normal in my opinion that they won. I learned about what they were accused of and I was really sorry. The Italians never asked us for anything!

In the interview, Pravi also talks about her experience at Eurovision, her ambitions and her upcoming album, which will be released on August 18. You can read the whole interview here.

Barbara Pravi with Voila took second place with 499 points at Eurovision 2021. This was the first time since 2002 that France was in the top 5.
