America’s Got Talent is still hosting auditions for its 13th season. The talent competition has open calls in four more locations before it will select the season’s performers. The remaining auditions are scheduled for January 13 in Nashville, January 19 in San Jose, February 3 in Los Angeles, and February 24 in Phoenix. If you want a shot to strut your stuff on TV, you’ll need to register on the show’s dedicated audition website.
America’s Got Talent has spawned several companion programs to highlight gifted performers all around the world. The United States has only had one magician take the top prize; Mat Franco parlayed his title into a standing engagement in Vegas, and has revisited the program for its holiday special. Asia’s Got Talent had multiple excellent magic acts, with two magicians squaring off in the grand finals. The Sacred Riana’s skills and striking on-stage persona secured her that win for 2017. Or, if you want your magic mixed with a dash of the bizarre, check out Uekusa Kazuhisa’s performance for Georgia’s Got Talent that put him into the semi-finals.
