Washington DC – do you think you have talent? So many talented folks have come out of the Washington, DC area – John Phillip Sousa, Duke Ellington, Marvin Gaye, Peter Tork (of the Monkees), The Thievery Corporation and Van McCoy (who wrote the 1970’s hit “The Hustle”) – are all proud, talented Washingtonians. As well, famous talented folks like Al Jolson, Ahmet Ertegun (founder of Atlantic Records), Meshell Ndegeocello, Nils Lofgren (guitarist for Bruce Springsteen), country music legend Roy Clark, Joan Jett and Bo Diddley have called our Nation’s Capital “home” at some point in their lives. Well on November 4th & 5th at the Washington Convention Center – if you think you have what it takes to take it all the way on NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT), then you need to make sure you sign up and show up this weekend for the AGT open casting call auditions.
Contestant hopefuls will have 90 seconds to show off their talent for the AGT touring team of judges. You can be any age and you can show any type of talent. According to my source at AGT, “We want to see anything and everything. Don’t miss your chance to show America YOUR talent and compete for the opportunity of a lifetime at winning the Grand Prize of $ 1 million dollars!”, and contestants are encouraged to pre-register for their audition at AGT Auditions.
Season 7 is sure to be as unforgettable as the first six seasons. AGT is conducting open casting calls in New York City (NY), St. Louis (MO), Washington DC, Tampa Bay (FL), Anaheim (CA), Austin (TX), and Charlotte (NC) for the upcoming season. “America’s Got Talent” auditions are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for performers across the country to showcase their talents in 90 seconds to series’ producers in the hopes of being able to take the stage in front of the judges and all of America as they share their unique talent with television audiences nationwide.
“America’s Got Talent,” hosted by Nick Cannon, stars Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan as the panel of celebrity judges, is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of aspiring stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage hoping to win America’s hearts – and the $1 million prize.
