The EBU statement reads:

At the time, the song’s points tally of 292 was a record-breaking one for Italy.

Now, viewers of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest will also be treated to a special performance, which is likely to be a big highlight for anyone in attendance at Pala Olimpico on the Thursday evening, as well as for those of us watching at home.
