This media alert just came into my in box. The event is Thursday but if you’ve got talent, go for it.

Here’s the media alert:

‘America’s Got Talent’ is in Seattle Thursday, Nov. 29 for an open talent casting call.

WHAT: Do you have what it takes to win $1 million?

NBC’s top-rated series “America’s Got Talent” stops in Seattle for a one day open talent casting call for the show’s eighth season. Every type of performer is welcome – musicians, dance crews, magicians, contortionists, comedians, singers, jugglers, animal acts and everything in between.

“America’s Got Talent” 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.

Last year’s 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.

To audition or for more information go to AGT Auditions or NBC

Auditions are at the Washington State Convention Center, 800 Convention Place, Seattle.
