How do the America's Got Talent Auditions work?

You may not have realized what goes on behind the scenes from when Contestants sign up for AGT.  Theresa Graham, manger of unscripted formats at NBC, filled us in on the details.

“We have open call Auditions virtually to reach as many people as possible. Anybody can sign up and have an Audition with our casting team and producers. If they think that somebody is worth considering, they put them through to our executive producers. After they say yes, then the Act will go to audition in front of the Judges. We all see everything play out from there,” she told NBC Insider. “Because it's a variety show, they want to make sure they’re finding the best singers, dancers, contortionists, and more. Anybody with any talent can audition." 

Who should try out for AGT? Everyone!

“We want the best of the best, no matter what the talent is and no matter who they are. So we encourage everybody with any talent to audition, and if it’s something that we love, something that we think America will love, we will put them in front of the Judges. We just want to really represent America and the great and diverse talent that we have out there,” Graham said.
