“America’s Got Talent” Coming to a City Near You in Search of the Next Star

The sixth season of NBC’s top-rated summer series, “America’s Got Talent,” will tape shows in front of a live audience in cities across the country starting in Seattle on March 2 and 3. After Seattle, the #1 talent competition series will travel to Los Angeles (March 9-10), Minneapolis (March 23-24), New York (March 31-April 1), Atlanta (April 12-14) and Houston (April 19-20).  Host Nick Cannon and celebrity judges Sharon Osbourne, Piers Morgan and Howie Mandel will travel to each city to determine which acts will make it through to Las Vegas for next summer’s shows.

With the talent search open to acts of all ages, “America’s Got Talent” has brought the variety format back to the forefront of American culture by showcasing performers from across the country. The series is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of hopeful stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage hoping to win America’s hearts — and the $1 million prize.
