KISS to perform on America’s Got Talent season finale

KISS will open the season 13 finale of NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent on Wednesday, September 19.

The two-hour event will determine the winner among 10 finalists as they battle for $1 million in prize money and a chance to headline at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Among the finalists are magician Shin Lim, singer Michael Ketterer, aerial dance group Zurcaroh, Duo Transcend (aerialists), comedians Samuel J. Comroe and Vicki Barbolak, singer Daniel Emmet, violinist Brian King Joseph, singer Glennis Grace, comedienne Vicki Barbolak, and singer Courtney Hadwin.

Hosted by Tyra Banks, the series includes a judging panel of Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel.

The America’s Got Talent finale will be broadast September 19 starting at 8 p.m. ET on the NBC television network.

KISS have been fairly quiet throughout 2018, playing only a handful of live dates in Europe this summer.

The classic rock act will host KISS Kruise 8 next month, which sets sail from Miami, FL to Key West and Nassau, Bahamas with a lineup that includes Vintage Trouble, The Dead Daisies, and sets by former KISS members Ace Frehley and Bruce Kulick.

KISS made headlines recently when bassist Gene Simmons settled a lawsuit alleging sexual battery, gender violence, battery and assault against a female radio and television broadcaster.

The December 2017 suit alleged that the 69-year-old rocker made unwarranted sexual advances during a November 1 interview at the San Manuel Casino location of a new Rock & Brews restaurant with co-owners Simmons and bandmate Paul Stanley.
