Enter to win front of the line passes for “America’s Got Talent” auditions

Ready for your shot at $1 million? NBC’s top-rated summer series “America’s Got Talent,” is heading to New York City to continue the nationwide search for season eight contestants with auditions on February 1 and 2 at St. John’s Center Studios (570 Washington Street, Manhattan).

Three lucky residents from Queens can enter for a chance to win “front of the line” passes, allowing them to skip the long audition lines.

The Courier is also looking to profile a Queens local who is auditioning for “America’s Got Talent,” so please let us know below if you would be interested in being featured in a story.

Entries will be accepted until 9:00 a.m., January 29.

“America’s Got Talent” is the only talent competition show that is open to any age and any talent. The auditions are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for performers across the country to showcase their talents in 90 seconds to the series’ producers in the hopes of being able to take the stage in front of the judges.

Every type of performer is welcome – including musicians, dance crews, magicians, contortionists, comedians, singers, jugglers, animal acts and everything in between. This year’s search is bigger than ever before, with the show traveling to the most cities in search of one-of-a-kind talent.

Last year the winning act, Richard and Nick Olate of Olate Dogs, beat out thousands of hopefuls to take home the coveted $1 million grand prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas.
