The kids' set spanned more than 50 years of pop, rock and bluegrass hits. Selah wowed the crowd with her version of Bob Marley's Three Little Birds . One of the crowd favorites was a Kansas song, Dust in the Wind . The kids closed their set with a song that put them in the TOP 10 on season 3 of America's Got Talent, Rockin Robin . The packed colliseum gave a standing ovation and the emcee asked the kids if they could do one more. This time they would perform a Monkees' classic, I'm A Believer .

After leaving the stage, Lee Greenwood met the kids and congratulated them on a great performance. Michael Vest caught the moment back stage. Lee performed a mix of greatest hits and new releases. He closed the show with the song that puts everyone on their feet, God Bless the USA . The kids were honored to meet such a great American singer.
