Stevie Nicks to Perform on 'America's Got Talent' Finale
Nicks -- who is kicking off a fall tour with the Pretenders on Oct. 25 -- is promoting her 2014 solo album 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault. The tour will include selections from the record, recorded in Nashville with producers Waddy Wachtel and Dave Stewart, which is a collection of re-recorded demos spanning 1968-1987.
While an AGT spokeswoman confirmed Nicks' appearance, the show is mum about what the star will perform. In a recent interview with Billboard, she said she is planning to perform "Stand Back" on tour as a personal tribute to Prince. "Had I ever in a million years thought that we would lose him, I would have made sure that that would have happened. And it didn't," she said of never performing "Stand Back" -- which was "written to" Prince's "Little Red Corvette" -- with the late legend. "So that's just one of those things in your life where you so say, 'I really missed out.' Because he should have. That should have happened. So whenever I play ‘Stand Back’ from this day forward, Prince will be standing next to me. That is always going to be a joy.”
Also appearing on the America's Got Talent finale: Jersey Boys and Il Volo.
The final contestants -- who performed Tuesday night -- include 12-year-old singer Grace VanderWaal, Brian Justin Crum, Sal Valentinetti, Linkin' Bridge, opera singer Laura Bretan, juggler Viktor Kee, magician Jon Dorenbos, contortionist Sofie Dossi, mime/comedian Tape Face (aka Sam Wills) and mentalist duo The Clairvoyants.
The America's Got Talent finale airs at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
