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,

Latin Billboard Awards 2014 Red Carpet
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.

1.) Top Latin Albums Artist of the Year, Duo or Group against:
La Arrolladora Banda el Limon de Rene Camacho

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.
