I doubt if anyone attending the American Idol results show last Thursday night expected the three teenagers who comprise the Italian singing group IL VOLO, to have such powerful voices at their age.
You could see that the three contestants Haley Reinhart, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina were thoroughly enjoying IL VOLO singing O Sole Mio.
IL VOLO singing O Sole Mio.
O Sole Mio is probably the oldest song ever sung on the American Idol stage by any guest singer or contestant. The song was written 113 years ago in 1898. If American Idol has a 1890’s theme one week next year, this will be one of the songs sang.
Elvis Presley sings It’s Now or Never to the tune of O Sole Mio after another singer sings part of the Italian version.
The Presley video was filmed in Rapid City, South Dakota less than two months before his death in August of 1977.
