It's not every day that a rising alt-rock band gets to open for Robin Thicke, Elton John, Katy Perry, and Queen. But that's just what happened to Arizona pop-rockers the Summer Set, when they won the fan-voted Macy's Rising Star talent contest and scored the opportunity to kick off the entire iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas on Friday, September 20.

Talking to Yahoo Music backstage right before their gig of a lifetime, the Summer Set kids seemed surprisingly calm. So the conversation quickly turned to light topics: Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, and haircuts. Check out these rising stars in the video above!
