Are you ready to step from relative darkness to a stage in front of millions of spectators? Here’s your chance to shine on America’s Got Talent.
The Audition crew surfs the web to find the diamonds in the rough for Season 16. This year, open-call auditions will take place entirely online – with four dates that can be tried out live in November and December.
America’s audition dates for Season 16 of Got Talent
The AGT crew offers many opportunities to prove themselves by holding auditions online and making them available nationwide.
Here are the four dates for live streaming auditions with AGT producers:
- 14th November
- 15th of November
- 12th of December
- 13th December
Registering for an appointment does not guarantee an audition. You can choose one date or all four if you want.
If you can’t virtually audition one of these days, you can send one instead, recorded video auditions. For video deliveries, make sure they are about two minutes long and don’t do a lot of post-production such as B. speech processing, automatic coordination or the merging of several clips into a highlight role.
Your video needs to reflect something that you can personally do.
How do I apply to America’s Got Talent?
Just a few steps separate you from fame.
Conditions of participation
Nothing is worse than being discounted for technical reasons. Make sure it is you eligible to participate before you sign up. The good news is we read the fine print so you don’t have to.
Big Benefits: You must be a US citizen, permanent resident, or have a current work permit card at the time of the audition. Minors can audition, but must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Even if you’ve already signed up for the show and auditioned, you’ll need to do so again for the final season.
In addition, you cannot currently run for public office. Thank God. We don’t need politics that interrupt our time with Simon Cowell, do we? You must agree not to run for public office until one year later. Apologize in advance if you searched for “America’s Got Talent” to start your campaign.
Audition registration process
If you fit the bill so far, go to America’s Got Talent Audition Website to register your “Performer Profile” for the 16th season.
During the registration process you can select a specific date that you would like to speak to the AGT staff via live stream. Live auditions take place via Zoom. Otherwise, you can submit a recorded video.
We usually recommend attending the live audition so you can interact directly with the judges and hopefully make a good impression. However, if your act involves multiple performers, it is best to submit a video to meet CDC guidelines.
“We strongly advise groups against meeting for a virtual audition at this time, and suggest that you upload a pre-existing recording,” advises the Audition website.
What can you expect on the day of the audition?
For past seasons, auditions have typically been held in large stadiums or theaters where you would arrive early in the morning, stand in line for hours, hoping to land in front of the judges before they closed the doors for that day.
Since the auditions for the 16th season are online, it looks different. An element of chance is still involved. You are not guaranteed an audition. Instead, the performers are chosen according to the motto “first come, first served”.
Basically, during the selected dates of your audition, you should be ready to roll during the allotted check-in time. This time frame is also not the guaranteed time for your audition. Your audition can take place before or after check-in, depending on the course of the day.
The website states that audition days typically start at 9 a.m. Pacific Time and end around 6 p.m. For security reasons, prepare to be on standby all day – as if you were personally waiting in line for your name to be revealed.
Tips for nailing your virtual audition down
You need to be a little more creative and attentive with your season 16 audition as it’s online and the staging is up to you.
These tips will ensure your act is worth publicly berating by Simon Cowell.
- Test your technology, then test it again. A strong internet connection is crucial. The judges are likely to have endured dozens of mishaps and connection problems during auditions. Don’t add yourself to this number – and its anger.
- Set your own stage. Make sure your live stream or recorded video is recorded in good lighting. Being outside is an option, but be aware of the Wi-Fi restrictions. Once inside, the site should consider removing art or decorations from your walls in the frame.
- Make sure your act is suitable for performing on stage. While you may have restrictions on recording or live streaming, keep in mind that in a theater or event venue, the end result will be on stage.
- For dancers, a full song or two is best for performing. It is difficult for NBC to secure rights to medleys for broadcast. Original works are fine too, though the show does suggest that popular songs are best.
- Tips from Cowell himself: Be fearless and original, and dress to impress.
And a personal tip, if you want to shake it up: look at the winners of previous seasons and stand out. A spoken word poet, a singer-pianist and a musical-themed magician won seasons 15, 14 and 13.
Good luck and may the Wi-Fi gods ever be in your favor.
