Damiano David of Måneskin wears chaps for VMAs 2022 performance

Måneskin had no issues showing off some skin at the VMAs.

The Italian rock band’s lead singer, Damiano David, let it all hang out for their VMAs 2022 performancewearing nothing but a pair of black leather chaps with a thong.

The rocker, 23, turned and gave the audience a cheeky booty shake as he performed their hit song “Supermodel” after receiving their award for Best Alternative Video off-camera.

David rounded off his edgy look with over-the-knee leather boots, heavy black eye makeup and a silver studded black choker, wearing his hair slicked back for his performance outfit.

“HES SO HOT NO THEYRE ALL SO HOT I CANNOT” one fan commented on MTV News’ Tweet.

Meanwhile, his fellow bandmates wore coordinating black enembles, and it seems bass player Victoria De Angelis showed a bit more skin than intended.

The 22-year-old wore a one-shouldered outfit from Gucci that exposed one breast, which she covered up with a pasty. However, it was the breast that was meant to be covered by her top that was suddenly freed, causing MTV to censor the performance.

Fans took to Twitter to complain about the screen cutting to faraway, wide shots of the stage, and eventually realized it was due to a wardrobe malfunction.

“Y’all ruined their performance,” one fan commented on MTV News’ post, while another said, “I’m pissed! I waited all that time and they were on for a few seconds and barely on the screen??”

The band rocked out at the 2022 VMAs.

“I’m think [sic] the cameras cut off because guitarist wardrobe malfunction lol” one follower tweeted.

Måneskin, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2021, was also nominated for Best New Artist and Group of the Year and is also the first Italian band to be nominated for or win a VMA.

Speaking about their Best Alternative Video award, “It’s actually amazing,” David told ET. “We didn’t expect to [win]. There’s a lot of great, great artists here so it’s an honor for us of course.”

Now that’s worth a booty shake in our book.
