Additionally, if they can’t do either, they’ll have the opportunity to send a 90-second video audition.

NBC’s Unscripted Formats Manager, Theresa Graham told NBC: “If they think that somebody is worth considering, they put them through to our executive producers.

“After they say yes, then the Act will go to audition in front of the Judges. We all see everything play out from there.”

As of May 2023, the auditioning process is closed for season 18, however, auditioning seems to open during the springtime each year.

What do I need to bring to my audition?

If the producers move you to the celebrity judge audition, performers should be sure they’re “camera ready.”

This means they will need to be fully in costume, hair, and makeup would need to be done prior to coming, and performers will need o bring all props with them.

If you have your own music, producers will put you in contact with the music coordinator who will help edit your track so it reflects the 90-second audition time.

While performers would need to be fully dressed for their audition, they aren’t allowed to wear clothes with logos on them.

How can I watch this season?

Season 18 of America’s Got Talent will premiere on NBC on May 30, 2023, at 8pm ET.
