BURBANK- - January 24, 2008 - NBC's hit summer series "America's Got Talent" will be traveling to Orlando, Nashville and Charlotte this month as part of a nationwide search for the hottest performers in the country to compete in the third season of "America's Got Talent."

Singers, dancers, comedic performers and variety acts of all ages will have a chance to strut and perform in front of the show's producers, who will determine which acts will have a chance to appear on the show.

Not only did he win the $1,000,000 grand prize, but his lifelong dream to headline on the Las Vegas strip came true when he signed a 2008 contract with The Las Vegas Hilton in a deal worth more than $1.5 million dollars.

Auditions are open to everyone, however, we encourage people to go online and pre-register at http://www.nbc.com/Americas_Got_Talent/
