Alrighty then. This is very exciting.

America’s Got Talent just posted via their Facebook page that Josh Groban, Il Divo, Luke Bryan, Icona Pop and The Rockettes will be performing on next week’s America’s Got Talent Finale scheduled for Wednesday, September 18th.

That’s quite the line-up! Golly gee, I wonder which act will be paired with Il Divo and Josh Groban? Forte all the way. I can’t see them with any other act unless they provide vocal backdrop to Kenichi’s performance.

And so the road to the Finale begins. I wish they would bring back Season 6 winner, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.. He was one of their biggest finds! One can only hope.

And I am surprised they are not featuring young Jacquie Evancho, who was the Season 5 Runner-Up, with Forte.

I am sure there is a lot of tweaking and fiddling going on in AGT Land, so stay tuned for more updates as they come in.

Comments are now open for business!

  1. MCL, I’m not familiar with the format for the finale, will Forte sing one song or two?


  2. Janey – I believe they are singing two but not 100% sure. They mentioned something to that effect somewhere online. Can’t remember where. Plus, they will sing another song or 2 on the results show I imagine.


  3. Only asking because it would be nice to see a less produced performance. The staging has been all out (but why mess with a winning formula?) and it would be interesting to see something a little different, a few less lights, a few less big notes and maybe a little more harmonizing. But either way, I ‘m looking forward to all their performances.


  4. Janey – I totally agree. Their vocals are swallowed up with the grandiose production elements. I want to see them move away from that and just focus on highlighting their exquisite harmonies and genuine personas.
