Stevie Nicks performed the Fleetwood Mac classic “Landslide” on Wednesday night’s America’s Got Talent finale. After the performance, AGT host Nick Cannon asked what kind of advice Stevie had for finalist Grace Vanderwaal, to which she replied, “She reminds me a lot of me [because] in a lot ways we sing very similar. And we like to be quirky and we like to be a little weird and different and not exactly like everybody else. But we like that, and she’s got it. Whatever happens, Grace is going to the top!”
Nick wrapped up Stevie’s segment by promoting her upcoming 24 Karat Gold Tour (which begins in Phoenix on October 25) and, most importantly, declaring her “The Queen of Rock and Roll” to the 13+ million viewers who watched the finale.
The country trio continues to pay respect, tribute at shows for the music of Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac
Lady Antebellum have been closing their summer shows with Fleetwood Mac’s classic “Landslide.” The band, which is currently in the middle of the Wheels Up Tour with special guest Hunter Hayes, added the perennial favorite as an encore to their set in June. From the videos below, it’s clear that their rendition has been a good-old-fashioned-sing-along session with audiences.
Stevie Nicks has shared a special bond with the country trio ever since they collaborated on CMT Crossroads in 2013. In 2014, the two powerhouse acts found themselves together once again, first with Stevie adding her vocals to a special rerecorded version of the band’s 2013 song “Golden” and then Lady Antebellum turning up on Stevie’s “Blue Water” from 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault.
Here are two recent performances of “Landslide” from the band’s June 2 concert in Irvine, California and July 29 pre-show acoustic performance in West Valley City, near Salt Lake City. (Get ready to bust out the tissues!)
