I haven’t been watching TV and am therefore way behind in these matters. However, Il Volo have been brought to my attention and they make me smile. And here is their original performance together. Browing through YouTube Italian TV performances is interesting – they are different from American or British! Should that be a surprise?

It is such a joyful experience to watch them sing O Sole Mio that I am trying to analyze it. First of all the voices are so spectacular particularly for our North American ears. Then there is the incredible age factor which makes them adorable like little men dolls. The gorgeous little one (no dimples, no glasses) just turned 15!
Also the fact that they are so different from one another gives them authenticity. The song is great fun, they divide the singing up so well,and by the time they got to the AI performance they were clearly having a ball. I can almost sing O Sole Mio in Italian myself now. I like how the gorgeous dreamboat one watches the others reach the really high notes — they all smile and visibly relax as if they perhaps don’t always hit them.
In short it is wonderful to know that kids like that exist somewhere in the world, and I now want to go to Sicily.
Yes, you described their appeal perfectly.
