“The Voice” winner and chart-topping singer Cassadee Pope will perform on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” results show, Wednesday, Aug. 28 (9-10 pm ET). Global superstars One Direction will also perform “Best Song Ever,” the song from their highly anticipated new movie “One Direction: This is Us” in the live telecast.
Pope’s soaring vocals and edgy performances stole the national spotlight when she won season three of NBC’s “The Voice” and dominated the top spot on the iTunes All-Genre chart with three of her performances. Since then, the petite powerhouse has ascended to the #1 spot on the iTunes Country Singles Chart with “Wasting All These Tears,” the first single from her debut album “Frame By Frame,” releasing Oct. 8 on Republic Nashville. Pope will also share an inside look at life since “The Voice” in a yet-to-be-titled docu-series, premiering on CMT Oct. 4 (9 pm ET). CMT will also feature Pope as one of their Next Women of Country and she graces NASHVILLE LIFESTYLES’ August “Hot List” cover. Currently, Pope is opening for Rascal Flatts’ Live & Loud tour.
On “Best Song Ever,” Niall, Louis, Harry, Liam and Zayn deliver yet another memorable modern-pop classic. The music video delivered a record breaking 12.3 million views across VEVO in the 24 hours following its premiere. With two albums to date – “Up All Night” and “Take Me Home” – One Direction have sold over 30 million records worldwide. Their third album is due out later this year. They’ve won two BRIT awards, three MTV Video Music awards and three Billboard Music awards. “One Direction: This Is Us,” directed by Morgan Spurlock and released in theaters on Aug. 30, is a captivating and intimate all-access look at life on the road for the global music phenomenon and their meteoric rise to fame.
