Well, Our Guys were Magnificent! I couldn’t be more proud! They were in a group of winners who are amazingly talented. Here are the top five:
More on this later. Too exhausted to write. I’m sure I’m not the only one who just started breathing.
I’m going to try to keep up with the news as it comes in tonight. Usually with blogs, you read from the bottom up, but I’m going to do it backward. I’m starting with the question: “Who Is The Next Winner?” as posed by Eurovision, and will end with Il Volo’s final standing…believing with my heart that I already know what it will be. 😀

Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca ~~
We said all along that win or lose, you guys had our love, devotion and unwavering support. While the result is not what we had hoped for, we love you even more — if that is even possible. You came, you saw, and you held the audience in the palms of your hands while staying true to yourselves in your characters and your music, and those are the marks of true champions. I’ve no doubt that participating in the 60th Eurovision Song Contest will add to your careers in amazing ways — ways we can only begin to imagine.
We wish you every success in Europe, Boys, but hurry back to the US where nothing but our “Grande Amore” is waiting for you!
Kelly and all The Flight Crew
I know we’re all getting ready for Il Volo’s performance tonight, but since the will be singing last, I hope this will give you something to focus on while we wait.
Tonight will be EPIC — win or lose. The crowd already loves them; how can they not? It will be an honor to be able to be a part of this with you guys tonight.
Much love to you, and of course —
LOVE TO PIERO, IGNAZIO AND GIANLUCA!! YOU ARE GONNA KILL IT!
