Kiesza, Abigail Spencer Set for ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

Regularly saddled with mediocre acoustics and a constraining stage setup, few performers turn their late night talk show gigs into must-see affairs.

Kiesza subverted those expectations with her electric rendition of “Hideaway” on “Late Show with David Letterman” (below). In doing so, she created monstrous expectations for her future late night gigs.

She will attempt to live up to those expectations when she visits ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Tuesday, July 29.

The performer, who is breaking out as an international pop star, will take the stage after host Jimmy Kimmel interviews Daniel Radcliffe and Abigail Spencer.

Other guests appearing on “JKL” this week include Andi Dorfman, Train and Kerry Washington. ABC’s full listings follow:
