    Il Divo is massively overrated. We can thank Oprah for them. I actually caught that episode...Big mistake.

    Whether as a group or individually, they don't bring anything to the table. I don't really consider them musicians. They don't compose or arrange anything that they sing, and they don't communicate the things they are given to see.

    From a purely vocal standpoint, none of them bring anything unique to music. They don't even have a true genre. They are NOT opera singers or in the classical genre. "Popera" does not count because classical singers will not claim them and pop musicians don't accept them.

    Not a single one has an identifiable voice. Whether it's pop music or classical music, a vocalist needs a distinctive sound. When Justin Timberlake is on the radio, you know it's him. When Luciano Pavarotti sings, you know it's him. Il Divo just sounds like four generic and mediocre lyric baritones getting together trying to outsing each other.

    They are individually talented, but immensely overrated as a group.

    Their voices and vibratos clash terribly. They are just a lame attempt at recreating the Three Tenors phenomenon. Not to mention that a lot of their song choices are horrific.

    I have to agree with everyone here, that on their own there is no doubt they can sing, but together its just wrong!

    I really hate classical musicians singing songs from musicals and pop songs, its just not good!

    Saying that I wouldn't mind being a couple of pennies behind them!!

    as individual singers, they are pretty talented

    as a group, they are massively over rated. sorry, you just do NOT want an operatically trained tenor singing "Somewhere". It doesnt work.
