There will be performances and freestyles by Trappermale Dale, Malcolm Dewayne, Luh Stain, Lul menace, Vicky Love, Mia Michelle, Daisha McBride, Namir Blade, FU Stan, the Unknown Friends, and more.
Talent show fans will probably want to grab tickets for the Saturday, June 26 event at Downtown Riverfront Park. Lil Flip, DJ Unk, DJ Luke Nasty, Fabo, and Nashville All Star Band will all perform. Season 18 American Idol contestant Aliana Jester will also be performing. Aliana is a powerhouse singer who brought her emotional support dog, Nova, to her audition and the judges fell in love with them.
After having a complicated relationship with her mother growing up and struggling with self-harm, Aliana went to live with her dad. She has since been able to pursue her musical dreams and even returned for the big comeback episode in Season 19. Fans of Aliana can purchase exclusive VIP meet and greet tickets. The meet and greet will take place at the Hard Rock Cafe with both Aliana and Kortni.
Another familiar face that will be performing alongside Aliana is Casmè from Season 19 of The Voice. Casmè has been a musician for over 20 years and landed a spot on John Legend’s team last season. She has continued to perform gigs including a recent New Orleans show with fellow contestant Tamara Jade.
‘AGT’ Star Quintavious Johnson Will Also Take the Stage

He competed on Season 9, taking on huge hits by the Jackson 5, Mary J. Blige, and Jennifer Hudson. He finished the competition in fifth place. Quintavious just released his single “Your Grace” available now on all streaming platforms.
