Producers will be looking for talent of all kinds - musicians, dance crews, magicians, contortionists, comedians, singers, jugglers, animal acts and everything in between, from all walks of life - to strut and perform on-stage competing for America's votes, a headline show in Las Vegas and a million-dollar prize.

Singing chicken farmer Kevin Skinner, of Mayfield, KY., was recently crowned the winner of season four. The win moved the humble country singer to tears. "I've always loved to perform," he said, "I want to go out there and give 'em the best show I can." Skinner took home the show's million-dollar prize and will be headlining "America's Got Talent Live," hosted by Jerry Springer at the Planet Hollywood Casino in Las Vegas beginning this October.

Open to any talent of any age, "America's Got Talent" offers a unique chance for anyone to perform on a nationwide variety show. Contestants are encouraged to pre-register at http://www.AGTauditions.com. By pre-registering, contestants will be kept up-to-date with the most current information.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Simon Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Jason Raff, and Scott St. John ("Deal or No Deal") are executive producers.
