Il Volo to return for second semi-final interval act!

Just now, Eurovision.tv has announced another star-studded addition to an already high-profile interval acts line-up for Turin: Il Volo. The trio of tenors, made up of Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, who won Sanremo 2015 and later came third at Eurovision with their song Grande amore, will return to the Eurovision stage in the interval of the second semi-final.

The trio were originally formed as teenagers on Italian junior talent show “Ti lascio una canzone” (English: I’ll leave you with a song), which has been dubbed “Junior Sanremo” by many internationally, with the purpose of creating a group similar to the Three Tenors (Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti).

Since their debut album release in 2010, they’ve had huge crossover success, appearing on The Tonight Show, Good Morning America and The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2012 alone. For a time, their rendition of Neapolitan classic O sole mio was the most viewed Italian video on YouTube worldwide. As well as all over Europe and the US, they’ve given concerts in South America and the Far East.

In 2019, after releasing a Greatest Hits album, they returned to Sanremo with the song Musica che resta, which earned them another bronze medal. The group are currently on another worldwide tour, and will be stopping over from Barcelona for their performance in Turin.

As has already been revealed, the first semi-final will feature interval acts from Diodato and Dardust, acts also familiar with success at Sanremo.
