VIDEO: Def Leppard rocks America’s Got Talent finale

Def Leppard put some rock into this season’s America’s Got Talent finale Wednesday night.

Originally scheduled to appear a week earlier, a last-minute scheduling change moved the British rockers to this week’s season-ending show, as producers had 2 hours of programming to fill (to meet advertising commitments) for about 10 legitimate minutes of content.

Leppard performed a mix/medley featuring “Rock Of Ages” and “Pour Some Sugar On Me.”

The band continues its US tour in support of their live album, “Mirror Ball,” with shows this week in Seattle (15), Nampa, Idaho (17).

For those interested, singer Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. won the talent contest; he picks up $1 million dollars and a headlining show in Las Vegas.
