Full Show Summary

From International Emmy winning producer Nigel Lythgoe comes the new series that breaks the mold of talent/reality television. In "Opening Act", Lythgoe and his A-List Artist Development Team - including Grammy(R) winning superstar Mary J. Blige and chart-topping producer Antonina Armato from Rock Mafia - comb the Internet to find the web's most talented amateurs, then give them the once-in-a-lifetime chance to open for a top music superstar. But here, there are no judges to woo, auditions to pass or rounds to win: Each band or solo act has only days to prepare af ter a surprise visit that presents them with an opportunity they never knew existed, and viewers follow them from obscurity to the big-time gig that could change their lives forever. A true first of its kind, "Opening Act" will showcase not only some extraordinary, unknown talent, but the emotional and very personal journey that awaits them on their way to perform on a national stage. Produced by Nigel Lythgoe Productions, "Opening Act" premieres July 9 at 10:00 pm ET/PT only on E! (Source: E!) more less

Missouri-based Von Smith is a powerhouse singer that is ready to seize an opportunity he once missed. So when Olivia surprises him with the chance to open up for Lady Gaga, he's all in! But in order to take the stage in front of all the Little Monsters, Von must come out of his shell and flourish as a young artist. Von's biggest struggle surrounds his religious differences with his mother. And on top of issues at home, Von appears to be much more shy than his YouTube persona.
