GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING BAND TRAIN AND 'KA' BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL TO PERFORM ON NBC'S 'AMERICA'S GOT TALENT' RESULTS SHOW ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 21

Four More Acts from the Top 48 Move into the Top-rated Series' Semi-finals

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - July 20, 2010 - Grammy Award-winning band Train and "K�" by Cirque du Soleil will perform on NBC's top-rated "America's Got Talent" Wednesday, July 21 (9-10 p.m. ET) as the next four acts going into the series' semi-finals will be revealed live.

The band Train will perform their latest international chart-topping single "Hey Soul Sister" from their current album, "Save Me, San Francisco." The song reached #1 on the overall iTunes chart, has been certified RIAA Quadruple Platinum (selling more than 4 million copies) and soared up the Billboard charts, peaking at #3 on the HOT 100 chart and #1 on the Adult Top 40 Chart. Since forming in San Francisco in 1994, members of Train have made their mark on music history with its Grammy-Award-winning song "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)" and chart-topping singles "Meet Virginia" and "Calling All Angels." Now with their fifth album, "Save Me San Francisco," Train has channeled their early days, revisiting the roots rock sound that has made the band such a tour de force - and, in turn, the band is stronger than ever before.

"K�" by Cirque du Soleil from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas features 80 artists from around the world in a gravity-defying production with a powerfully emotive soundtrack that enhances the innovative blend of acrobatic feats, Capoeira dance, puppetry, projections and martial arts. "K�" is created and directed by acclaimed theater and film director Robert Lepage. Lepage ("Bluebeard's Castle," "The Far Side of the Moon") describes the story as "the coming of age of a young man and a young woman through their encounters with love, conflict and the duality of K�-- the fire that can unite or separate, destroy or illuminate."

In its fifth season, "America's Got Talent," airs Tuesdays (9-11 p.m. ET) and Wednesdays (9-10 p.m. ET) on NBC. Nick Cannon hosts. Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan star as the celebrity panel of judges.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Simon Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Jason Raff, Ken Warwick ("American Idol") and Georgie Hurford-Jones are executive producers.
