The Italian trio of teenage boys, Il Volo will perform on the “American Idol” results show this Thursday, May 19.
The boys made the trek from winning an Italian TV singing competition to worldwide success. Appearing on “American Idol” marks the start of a career in the United States, where their marketing team is hoping they will really “take off.”
With a single serendipitous performance on Italian vocal competition “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” (Leavin’ You a Song), the trio — Piero Barone (17), Ignazio Boschetto (16) and Gianluca Ginoble (16) — secured an international recording contract and a dream team to guide its career.
Billboard reports that after “Idol,” the boys will appear on CBS’ “The Early Show” on May 21. These performances support the May 17 release of their self-titled Geffen debut, produced by hitmaker Humberto Gatica and longtime champion of Italian music Tony Renis. International touring kicks off in June with a simple goal: global domination.
