Registering for an Open Call

CAN I AUDITION MORE THAN ONCE?

There are no rules about auditioning more than once as long as it's not the same day. Whether you come to an open calls or send in a video we're happy to give you another shot. If you sent a video and want to meet us at an open call city, or visa-versa, that's fine also.

I REGISTERED, BUT I'M NOT AVAILABLE THAT DAY OR TIME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

In some cities we hold open auditions for two days.  If one day doesn't work for you, and you want to come the other day, that is fine.  Just come the day that works best for you. If you miss the arrival time you picked, no worries. Just come when you can.

Our auditions are open to the public and are "first-come/first-serve" and you will be seen in the order you arrive.  Typically w4r open by 8 am and continues until 7 pm each day, however check the city page for where you are auditioning for hours in that city.

If you registered with us online, and want to change your day or time, you can just sign into the contestant zone using your email and password, then make your changes.

If you are having problems you can just email us at auditions@AGTauditions.com.  If you can give us your name, the email address you used to register, and if possible the Applicant Number (or Applicant ID) which you received when you registering to the system, and we'll take care of you.

I REGISTERED ONLINE, BUT NOW I WANT TO CHANGE MY AUDITION CITY.

We only allow each email address to register for one city and day. If you registered with us online, and would like to change your city or day you can do so by clicking here and signing into the contestant zone.

I WANT TO AUDITION WITH A GROUP BUT I ALSO WANT TO AUDITION AS A SOLO ACT. CAN I DO THAT?

Yes. You can audition as a group and also as a solo act. You can also audition in two different groups.  We don't care

It's best that you register online if you're coming to see us. You'll need a different email address for each registration.  But if that's not possible, just come down to the venue.

Either way, this is the important thing: When you get to the venue and pick up your contestant sticker and wristbands, tell us what your deal is -- i.e that you are in a group but also want to do a solo audition. You'll need a contestant sticker for each "act."

IF I DON'T REGISTER ONLINE FOR AN AUDITION, CAN I STILL COME?

Yes. Our auditions are open to anyone, any age and any talent so long as the person meets our eligibility requirements. However, we strongly suggest that you register for your audition.

By registering, you'll be prepared with all of the available forms, paperwork and latest information which will make your day go much smoother.

I HEARD YOU ARE HOLDING AN EVENT IN A CITY NEAR ME, BUT I DON'T SEE IT LISTED ON YOUR SITE.

America's Got Talent producers travel the country holding open auditions.  Here's a list of the cities we will be going to this year.

However, local NBC stations around the country will be holding their own auditions and contests.  While the America's Got Talent producers will not be running these events and they do not have a direct connection to our show, the TV stations will send us video of acts that perform.  We still encourage you to come meet us or send in a video of your act.

The station's dates and events are subject to change and are operated at their sole discretion. You should check their web sites for the latest information about their events.

I AM UNDER THE AGE OF 18 YEARS OLD, CAN I REGISTER ONLINE TO AUDITION OR SUBMIT A VIDEO?

America's Got Talent is open to any age and any talent, but we do have some terms to ensure the privacy of minors.

 

If you want to attend an open call:

If you are registering online for an open audition you must be 13 years old or over. If you want to attend an open call city audition, your parent or guardian can register you online using their name, email address, and other personal information.  Then we can keep your parent or guardian up to date on the latest audition details.

CAN I SEND IN A VIDEO AND ALSO AUDITION IN PERSON?

Yes.  You can send in a video and also appear in person at one of our city auditions.

I HAVE AN ANIMAL ACT. DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING SPECIAL?

Yes. If you have an animal act, please go to the paperwork section of our web site and fill out the Animal Information Form.

You must indicate the type of animal(s) you will be performing with so we can make the appropriate arrangements on our end.
