I’ve been reading comments since Thursday night, and I can tell that we’re all still completely stoked about The Guys’ win the other night. And why shouldn’t we be? It was so amazing! I know we’ve all watched and re-watched this video more than once, but I think we need to have a special place for it here, don’t you? 😀
Thank you to, PauLina SaLcido
I was so proud of them from the beginning of the night to the end. Looking so handsome and being so genuine and in the moment….
Thank you, Billboard
Thank you, LasGringasBlog
and they were named on “The Heartthrobs of the Night” list by Telemundo.
ILVolovers the world over did their part admirably during the show, tweeting #ElPulsoBillboard for @ilvolo to keep them at the top of the list of “Most Tweets” for the night. My lovely hosts commented on it more than once, saying, “OK. The Il Volo fans have got this. It’s not even a contest, and they are winning! It’s not even close!” There was a brief moment when they mentioned that Il Volo had dropped to number three on the list, and well…let’s just say that ILVolovers took care of that! 😀 Way to rock those tweets guys!
Another honor of the night–in my opinion at least–is that they were asked to present an award as well, which they did for Latin Pop Song:
Thank you, Caty Corraliza
To me, asking Il Volo to present an award and having them walk away with a win shows an acceptance that goes beyond their adoring public. It means that the industry has taken notice as well, and that is something that can take their already amazing career to the next level.
When I think about that, I have to think about how far they’ve come in such a short time, and have to wonder what is going through their minds. From thinking that Ti Luscio una Canzone would be it and that they would go back to their regular lives, to celebrating their first industry award in five short years…what a journey!
And how fitting that they have come full circle…appearing on Ti Luscio una Canzone again yesterday, singing, “Il Mundo,” fresh off of such success. I’m guessing they were an inspiration to every contestant that is currently on the show, a living, breathing example that dreams can come true.
Pictures of yesterday’s performance were provided by Alessandro La Vela on his Facebook page,

and Team Il Volo pointed us in the direction of this one
Thank you, manos de gianluca
Congratulations, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca! We love you; we’re so proud, and we wish that so many more of your dreams come true!
THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2014 Latin Billboard Award for LATIN POP ALBUM by a DUO or GROUP GOES TO OUR GUYS!!!!!!!!
EDIT: ENGLISH live stream —> http://www.mun2.tv/livestream-1-english-simulcast
They’re back, back right here in Miami, so exciting. I was excited enough to press my blue suit and go to the hair salon for a little touch up. It’s been a while since Il Volo has been on the move and we missed them! Since arriving in Miami on Sunday, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca have been on a whirlwind of interviews, including radio chats, Facebook chats, and TV appearances. They even had time for a little soccer on one show. You can tell they love to play the game! They appeared Tuesday night for a taping of Sabato Gigante to be aired toward the end of May. Leelee attended the taping and said they were amazing (of course), she’s going to give us a look at her evening in a post in the very near future!!
Tonight they will be presenters at The Latin Billboards. Andrea Bocelli is receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award and Il Volo will be part of the presentation!! Now, that’s going to be an emotional moment!! Remember Bocelli’s advice to Gianluca after he won Ti Lascio Una Canzone? The show will televised @ 7 Pm tonight, Eastern, on the Telemundo channel. There will be a red carpet portion too, hopefully we’ll get to see them there too! So…..tune in!!
TWITTERS, TWEETS AND KEEKS..
Gianluca tweeted 2 days ago” #miami #hot #smile #billboards2014 #excited”. The next day, “Today in #miami telemundo”. He also tweeted a nice photo!
Piero tweeted “every moment of your day is a surprise especially when you meet people like @BeatleFloyd, proud to have a fan like you, thank you” Today “LatinBiillboards is getting closer”
Ignazio tweeted “today at billboards” Last night “buonanotte”
I think it’s fair to say Il Volo loves Miami and as Leelee said “Of course they do, Miami loves them”!!
The specifics of their full tour are not available yet, we will post a s soon as we have the information! To all of you who have your tickets to the concerts in June, i’m sure it can’t come soon enough!! It’s going to be especially wonderful for those of you Flight Crew members that will be meeting each other for the first time!!
I Know Il Volo will shine tonight and make us proud of them, they always do! Love and luck tonight, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca!! Fingers crossed for an Award!
The Guys hit Miami this week, first for the taping of Sabado Gigante (we expect a full report, LeeLee! ;D ) and then for the big party,
How exciting is this? 😀 We know Il Volo has been here before. Last year they walked the red carpet (looking very much the part, in my humble opinion) and actually performed, receiving the only standing ovation of the night. In a tribute to Mexican singer and musician, Jose Jose, they brought down the house with a rendition of his famous, “El Triste”, a song that speaks of the deep sadness one feels at the loss of a loved one.
In case you somehow didn’t get to see or hear that awesome performance, please enjoy this sound recording (just close your eyes and feel the power) courtesy of our affiliate,

This year, Il Volo will attend the awards as nominated artists in two categories:
1.) Top Latin Albums Artist of the Year, Duo or Group against:
La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho
Voz de Mando
2.) Latin Pop Albums Artist of the Year, Duo or Group against:
Jesse & Joy
According to Wikipedia, Mana’ is the reining winner in both categories. Is this Il Volo’s year to take the crown?
So if this isn’t enough excitement for the residents of Miami and Florida at large (no…I’m not bitter…not even a little bit…), there was one more very exciting opportunity available to them. A Miami Talent Agency was hired to fill a few of the red carpet fan slots for the show. About 70 people were chosen and will be given a ticket to the show after The Red Carpet is complete. According to the email (which contains instructions on who should and how to submit your name, and which you can view here —> http://www.auditionsfree.com/2014/latin-music-billboard-award-show-now-casting-red-carpet-audience/ ), the talent was chosen in the week of April 8th. Please tell me some IlVolovers made the cut!
Be sure to stay tuned on April 24th. The show airs live at 7 pm on Telemundo.
