Earn a Spot on ‘America’s Got Talent’ With a YouTube Submission

Earn a Spot on ‘America’s Got Talent’ With a YouTube Submission

Televised talent show America’s Got Talent returns May 14 for season 7 and it’s again letting skilled fans audition via YouTube submissions.
This online component of AGT began in 2010 and spawned 10-year-old singer Jackie Evancho. She had previously unsuccessfully auditioned twice before earning a slot on the show thanks to her operatic YouTube entry. Evancho finished as runner-up that season.
This year, people living in the U.S. have until June 1 to woo producers, who will handpick 20 YouTube acts for a public vote. The top voted performer makes it into the TV show’s quarterfinals. Eleven other YouTube acts will compete in a live show in August for places in the semifinals.
Those acts will then face judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne, and battle for the $1 million prize against acts that advanced from the early rounds of AGT.
People can submit a video audition on the show’s app (for Android and iPhone), YouTube channel, NBC pageor Facebook page.
For a sampling of what people have submitted in the past, here are last season’s top 12 acts that came out of the YouTube contest:
