Downtown Columbus

Wanna meet celebrities Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne? Well, you better fine tune your shtick because the trio will be coming right downtown for open auditions for NBC’s America’s Got Talent. Somebody right here from Cbus may be destined to make off with the one-million dollar grand prize. It could be you. What are you waiting on?

Auditions will take place at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on January 19 and 20. What are they looking for? Judges want to see everything – musicians, magicians, contortionists, dancers, people with pets, fire eaters, tricksters and more. The only limit is your creativity.

Producer Simon Cowell gives possible contestants a little advice while auditioning:

  • · Be original.
  • · Don’t be boring.
  • · Stand out from the crowd.
  • · Be Fearless.

Hello, that captures Cbus peeps in a flash. Dream big and remember any talent and any age can make a go of it. Notoriety and money windfall may be just one audition away.

Before you march off to the convention center, there’s a little paperwork that you need to bring to the audition, and you can download it here. There’s even a way to submit an audition video if you can’t make it to the real deal on the 19th or 20th.

Good luck and let us know how your audition turns out.
