AMERICA TO NAME ITS NEXT MILLION-DOLLAR ACT NEXT WEEK ON NBC'S TOP-RATED SUMMER COMPETITION SERIES "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT"

Live Finale To Feature An All-Star Lineup of Guest Performances, Including Luke Bryan, Josh Groban, Il Divo Featuring Heather Headley, Icona Pop and the Rockettes

NEW YORK - September 12, 2013 - NBC's "America's Got Talent" heads into its final week after months of searching for America's next superstar act. The six finalists will perform live for America's vote for the last time on Tuesday, Sept. 17 (9-11 p.m. ET), for their chance at winning the $1 million prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas. The star-studded, two-hour finale broadcast on Thursday, Sept. 18 (9-11 p.m. ET) will feature a dynamic lineup of guest performances including Luke Bryan, Josh Groban, Il Divo featuring Heather Headley, Icona Pop and the Rockettes.

Superstar and Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan recently released his fourth studio album, "Crash My Party," which reached the largest sales debut for a Country male artist since 2004, topped both the Billboard 200 and Country sales charts, and is the third highest album to debut across all genres this year. This spring, Bryan co-hosted the Academy of Country Music Awards with Blake Shelton and received the coveted Entertainer of the Year award as well as the Vocal Event award with Jason Aldean and Eric Church for "The Only Way I Know." At the CMT Music Awards in June, Bryan won for Collaborative Video of the Year for "The Only Way I Know." Last year, Bryan was named the #1 Artist of 2012 and #1 Male Artist of 2012 by Country Aircheck. Billboard named album "tailgates & tanlines" the #2 Country Album and the #3 Country Artist Album of 2012 and claimed Bryan as the #3 Top Country Artist of the Year. Also in 2012, Bryan took home 11 music awards, including a record nine wins at the American Country Awards as well as his first American Music Award.

Global pop star Josh Groban debuted his sixth album, "All That Echoes," at #1 on the Billboard chart. Possessing one of the most outstanding and instantly recognizable voices in music, singer, songwriter and actor Groban has sold over 25 million albums and DVDs worldwide, and ranks as Billboard's 14th top-selling artist of the 2000s - with more than 20 million units sold in the U.S. alone. He is also the only artist to have two albums appear on the Top 20 best-selling albums list of the past decade. On Oct. 2, he launches his "In the Round" tour, giving fans a one-of-a-kind, 260-degree concert experience featuring classic songs from his illustrious 12-year career.

Record-breaking classical crossover group Il Divo is set to release their sixth studio album, "A Musical Affair," on Syco/Columbia Records on Nov. 5. The album is Il Divo's first compilation of songs inspired by Broadway shows such as "Phantom of the Opera," "Carousel" and "West Side Story" and features stellar duet partners Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth, Nicole Scherzinger, Heather Headley and Michael Ball. The album release will raise the curtains on a limited run of live Broadway performances at The Marquis Theater with special guest, Heather Headley, beginning Nov. 7. The foursome have sold over 26 million albums worldwide, achieved over 50 number one records, received 160 gold and platinum sales awards in over 33 countries and staged four groundbreaking world tours. Last year, they were honored as Artist of the Decade at the Royal Albert Hall.

Icona Pop continues to make U.S. chart history with their smash single "I Love It" feat. Charli XCX. The double platinum track has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide and recently reached the #1 position in the UK charts. They continue their North American Iconic Tour and will release their debut album, "THIS IS...Icona Pop," on Sept. 24, from Artist Company TEN/Big Beat/Atlantic Records. Aino and Caroline will debut their newest single, "All Night," for the first time on national television on "America's Got Talent."

The legendary Rockettes have continuously wowed audiences in the annual Radio City Christmas Spectacular. From appearances on the Tony Awards, "Project Runway," "Dancing with the Stars", and a recent cameo in Stephen Colbert's viral "Get Lucky" video, to the Super Bowl Halftime Show and Presidential inaugurations, the Rockettes are the epitome of teamwork and the embodiment of the belief that "together we're better." Each dancer achieved their lifelong dream of becoming a Rockette through hard work, determination, dedication and dreaming big. Known for their rich history, unrivaled talent, strength, dynamism, precision and athleticism, the Rockettes have become one of the nation's most beloved icons. As the stars of the annual Christmas Spectacular production, the Rockettes entertain more than one million people each year and have played to 75 different cities across the country with the national touring production.
