Kiss Announced as ‘AGT’ Season Finale Opening Act
If you want to rock and roll all night (and party every day), have we got news for you! Kiss will be performing on the season finale of America’s Got Talent this Wednesday! That means the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will bring their signature painted faces, outlandish costumes, and long tongues to the AGT stage.
In case you need a refresher, here is the legendary band performing with Adam Lambert on American Idol season 8:
That was a medley of two of their most well-known songs, “Detroit Rock City” and “Rock and Roll All Nite,” which are easily their most recognizable as well. However, interestingly enough, the only two Kiss songs to reach the Billboard Top Ten were “Beth” in 1976 and “Forever” in 1990. Clearly they can make hits!
Not only are they known for their popular music, but their live performances especially skyrocketed them to fame. Since the 1970’s, their performances have often featured fire breathing, smoking guitars, shooting rockets, levitating drum kids, and pyrotechnics. Plus who can forget their intense, long tongues? Those are a staple of their performances as much as their iconic makeup. It’s easy to see how much energy Kiss has on stage. Expect them to light it up and start the night off with a bang!
On top of all that, Kiss is one of the best-selling bands of all time! They’ve sold more than 100 million records worldwide. The band now consists of original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, as well as Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. They will be kicking off the results show on Wednesday, as the Top 10 finalists await to see who will win the year’s grand prize.
Don’t miss their sure-to-be dynamic performance and the crowning of the season 13 winner! It all happens Wednesday night on America’s Got Talent.
