I AM A DANCER? WHAT'S THE FLOOR LIKE IN THE AUDITION ROOMS?
We have two different types of flooring available in the audition rooms: carpet and parquet dance floors. The dance floor size depends on the venue. They are typically between 15' x 15' to 21' X 21.' If you want a room with a dance floor, you should let us know when you get called to the audition rooms.
Contestants under 18 must have permission from their parents or legal guardian to audition and must be accompanied by one of their parents or their legal guardian.
All minors attending the audition will be required to present a photo ID. Minor contestants may use a school ID or acceptable substitute (such as a yearbook page that includes a printed name with a photo AND a birth certificate). If the contestant is too young to have a photo ID, the parent or guardian should present a photo ID & the child’s birth certificate that includes the parents name with the child’s name on the certificate.
Contestants under 18:
- 1) Photo ID
- 2) Completed Personal Release Form (with parent signature)
- 3) If the minor contestant's parent or guardian will not be at the audition: Notarized and completed Guardianship and Medical Authorization for Minors form. If the parent or guardian will be there, you do not need to get this notarized.
- 4) If the minor contestant's parent or guardian will not be at the audition: Make sure Personal Release Form is signed by parent AND third-party.

Simon Cowell, who produces America's Got Talent, has the following advice for acts auditioning:
1) Be original.
2) Don't be boring.
3) Stand out from the crowd.
4) Be fearless.
Here is some more advice:
Dress to impress. Come with the outfit you want to wear on TV. It doesn't hurt to wear something you're comfortable in but will also let you stand out in the crowd.
PLEASE REFER TO OUR EXTENSIVE FAQ FOR MORE TIPS AND INFORMATION.
You will be given UP TO 90-seconds to audition. Please keep in mind that this is YOUR opportunity to show us your talent, so please come prepared. Practice your audition ahead of time so we see the best and most exciting parts of your performance. Producers reserve the right to modify allotted times for auditions at their sole discretion.
It is best if you perform to one or two songs for your audition rather than a mix or medley of songs which can be hard to clear for television. Make sure your choreography is tight and you bring lots of energy. Incorporating tricks and new, unique choreography is always a great way to stand out to the producers and judges. A good way to show your personality and unique style is through your wardrobe/costume. If you are a big group it's always a good idea to dress in your team uniform or another fun costume.
Please bring your music on a CD or a smartphone/tablet or any other device that can be plugged in via an auxiliary cord. Please make sure the music is NOT streaming from the internet on your device- must be downloaded.
