Time to Rest

After all the “goings on” interviews, press conferences, rehearsals, Semi-finals, rules, instructions, videos, slide shows, (taking a breath here) betting odds, multitudes of articles, polls, time conversions and photos, not to mention Conchita (?). Plus all the helpful emails from Gina, Mary S., Jana, AAIV, Madeline, Lijoy and the Eurovision people, I’ve finally figured out what’s going on and it’s over. Figures.

What winners our Boys are! They won 3rd place, the press award, the people’s popular vote and many, many new hearts! I know them inside and out, yet they took my breath away on that stage!  Also, my personal Boy didn’t have to shave his lovely beard.  

If you haven’t read the pride our Crew has for these winning men we love, scroll back to my previous article “We’ll Take Third” and read the wonderful comments.

All that’s left is for our Gentlemen of Il Volo to get plenty of well earned rest in the arms of their families. Here’s how Guys.. just stay away from things that start with a “P”. I don’t mean pasta and pizza. I mean planes, press conferences, polls, and photographers (perhaps Piratesorka and Penina too).

It’s also time for the whole Flight Crew to rest. God knows we lived anxiously through every moment with them! So, thanks to Mary S., I’m helping you relax.  Just sit back, smile, enlarge this to fill your screen and say awww..

UPDATED: Il Volo Professional ~~ Eurovision: Finale Night with Letter to The Guys





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.  😀

Have fun!

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!

Hi, Everyone!

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 —


~~ Kelly
