NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — Auditions for the next round of “America’s Got Talent” have begun in New Orleans.
Producers from the hit NBC show are looking for the most talented people in the Bayou State. Those who make it through will be brought back to perform for judges Howie Mandel, Howard Stern and a new, yet-to-be announced judge.
“America’s Got Talent” is the only talent competition show that is open to any age and any talent. The auditions are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for performers to showcase their talent in 90 seconds to the series’ producers in the hopes of being able to take the stage in front of the judges. Last year’s winning act, Richard and Nick Olate of Olate Dogs, beat out thousands of hopefuls to take home the coveted $1 million grand prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas.
New Orleans is the final stop on the 14-city search. Auditions will continue on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center (900 Convention Center Boulevard.
