Band looked/sounded great. Crowd shots were cringe inducing

It wasn't bad truth be told. This was a good showing; the band looked and sounded decent. Whenever they do something like this I always find myself hoping someone will see the performance and despite the band not being in their prime, will be curious enough to check out Alive.

They looked good, sounded fine, Paul squawked when he was calling out to the crowd. Being TV I figure it's probably pre-reorded anyway, so either way it was what it was.

It was a very good tv appearance and I was happy to see Gene handling most of the vocals. 8)

There is literally nothing here that they haven’t done on tv at least 1000 times before

Only less energy

Less screen time

Less spirit

I rewatched the video and noticed the crowd was crazy. Even that uptight Simon whoever was getting into it. Howie Mandel was going nuts. The AGT performance should boost tickets by getting those who are thinking about going to actually going to see KISS. As a punk ass kid in the 70s I never thought about 2020. Hell 1985 was unfathomable :lol: but here I am in 2020 still a fan and KISS is still here. Maybe not at their peak but neither am I. But KISS in concert is sure something great to see and enjoy.

Damn, totally forgot this was on. Got caught up in watching that terrible wreck at the end of the Daytona 500 and the aftermath.

From the video it looks like a good performance. Always good when you can get the crowd really into it, a bored crowd does not go over well on TV.

FYI on these shows they tell the audience to get as loud as possible for effect. I'm sure some of them were excited but not all of them. It's all for show.

Oh, I'm very aware of that. TV audiences for things like this are heavily-coached on how to act, etc. That being so, I've still seen some lame audiences on TV, and it really sucks the life out of a performance.

You didn't really expect a hidden gem on national TV during primetime, did you?

Hell, they hardly play those on cruises.

Aside from that, which was hard to ignore after hearing that song live like a million times, it was a lively performance.

It's very odd and sounds digitally created in a studio. I've never heard him sing like that. Agreed that the rest was decent.

Yeah, the singing was feelingless and forced. These kind of appearances are lame IMHO. So phony.

I'd guess they ran through the song at least three times. Like you say, the crowd is persuaded to be over the top. Everything, including guitars and drums is prerecorded. Essentially its a music video. Looked fine, but I really don't get exited by illusions like that. I'd rather watch Aerosmith sounding a little off, but playing live any day of the week.

Every single crowd shot I saw most of the people looked really enthused, were singing along, pumping their fists in the air and doing the Gene/love hand signs. The least energized people in the audience shots were still moving to the drum beat and smiling. Audience-wise, it was a win for Kiss last night.

A lot of those boisterous people are likely extras. Just saying.

But then there's the shot of the guy in the crowd trying to sing the words and he is a train wreck because he doesn't know them.
