As announced earlier on Citytvâ€™s Canadaâ€™s Got Talent, multi-platinum selling, pop-rock group Hedley will take the stage by storm for the much-anticipated Live Results on Monday, May 14. Hedley joins previously announced Americaâ€™s Got Talent runner up Jackie Evancho on the list of performers for the finale.
Signed to Universal Music Canada, since forming in 2004, Hedley â€“ comprised of singer/songwriter Jake Hoggard, guitarist Dave Rosin, bassist Tommy Mac and drummer Chris Crippin â€“ have achieved tremendous success in the Canadian pop music industry with a string of #1 hits (including “Invincible,” â€œPerfect,â€ â€œNever Too Late,â€ â€œFor The Nights I Canâ€™t Rememberâ€) and performing at countless sold-out shows across the country. The 15-time Juno nominated group recently took home the 2012 Juno Award for Pop Album of the Year for their new, Certified Platinum album Storms. A full-length, concept album, Storms is a cohesive work of melodic inspiration, drawn from the real lives of its creators and it is already striking a chord with fans both new and old. The recordâ€™s touching first single â€œInvincibleâ€ has proven to be the groupâ€™s fastest-selling digital track of all-time. Hedley is currently touring on their 2012 Shipwrecked Tour, bringing their raw talent and emotionally charged performances to audiences all across Canada.
In addition to tonightâ€™s announcement about Hedleyâ€™s appearance in the finale, the Canadaâ€™s Got Talent semifinal performances came to an end, as the last six semifinalists took the stage earlier this evening on Citytv. The final group of semifinalists competing for the viewersâ€™ votes were: Aygul Memet (Toronto), Broken Dance (Mississauga, ON), Francelle & Matt (Dieppe, NB), Jack Ettlinger (Toronto), Laheeb Quddusi (Devon, AB), and Marianne Demers (Sainte-Julie, QC).
