MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING RECORDING ARTIST GAVIN DEGRAW TO PERFORM ON "AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 9-10 PM ET

Live Results Show Also Features a Performance by Acclaimed Urban Circus TRACES

12 More Acts to Compete for the $1 Million Prize

NEW YORK, NY - July 9, 2012 - NBC's "America's Got Talent," the number one show of the summer, will present a special performance by Gavin DeGraw, singing his current single and album's title track, "Sweeter," during the live results show on Wednesday, July 11 (9-10 pm ET). The evening will also include a high-energy performance by the urban circus TRACES, featuring elements of acrobatics, street performance, and contemporary music.

Gavin DeGraw is no stranger to the top of the charts. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, CHARIOT, which sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: "I Don't Want To Be," "Follow Through," and the title-track, "Chariot." Gavin's self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles "In Love With A Girl," which Billboard dubbed "a rocking homerun," and the gold-certified "We Belong Together." In 2009, Gavin released FREE as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin's live favorites. DeGraw released his third studio album, SWEETER in September of 2011. The album's first single, "Not Over You," co-written with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, reached #1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit on Top 40, and was recently certified double platinum. The album's second single, the title track "Sweeter," continues to climb the sales and radio charts and was most recently featured as the spotlight track in HBO's 2012 summer television air spot. www.gavindegraw.com

TRACES, the show that turns circus on its head, is about to enter its second thrilling year at New York's Union Square Theatre. Created by the Montreal-based troupe 7 Fingers, TRACES is the city's most acclaimed and groundbreaking circus. Stripping away everything you thought you knew about the Big Top, TRACES fuses the traditions of circus with the energy of street performance to create an explosive display of emotion and physicality set to the music of Radiohead, VAST, Blackalicious, and more.

The next live performance round of the show will air Tuesday, July 10 (8-10 pm ET) with twelve contestants competing for the $1 million dollar prize. The first round was completed last week with America voting through David Garibaldi and his CMYK's, Edon, The Scott Brothers and Shanice and Maurice Hayes. The next 12 contestants are:
