I've read different descriptions of range but nominally, tenor is C3 to C5, classically. Anything above C5 is extra gravy, so to speak. The different fachs, also depending on timbre would normally describe notes above C5 to the leggiero and castrato descriptions. And it was traditionally thought, I think, that male notes above C5 were generally reserved for the lightest tenors, especially in the days for amplfication for singers. And that most of that was from the florid singers before the era of Wagner.

But I could be wrong.

That being said, I've heard some baritones sing a convincing note above C5, especially with amplification. And, in modern pop and rock music, amplification is expected and required and is a fair tool to use.

two different types of naming. c4 as middle c is scientific pitch notation, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_pitch_notation

I'm not sure what exactly what the note naming in that piano has.

and ya that guy definitely has some leggiero/alto tonality xP.
