Auditions: Australia’s Got Talent

By David Knox on September 12, 2011 / Filed Under News 22

Australia’s Got Talent will broaden its search for contestants for its 2012 season.

After proving a ratings hit this year the show will be auditioning in a number of regional centres including Bunbury, Cairns, Dubbo, Albury, Mildura and Coffs Harbour.

On offer is another $250,000 cash prize for solo acts, group performances, singers, dancers, magicians, circus & stunt acts, instrumentalists, comedians, novelty acts, animal acts, child performers, whether amateur or professional.

AGT is also the only show in Australia that allows Singer/Songwriters to present their original music, which is pretty generous. Comedians might be advised to present original material… just sayin’….

To qualify you must be either an Australian citizen or have permanent residency in Australia. Age is open.

If you are unable to attend the Open Auditions, you can still apply via online or DVD.

    I doubt it matters, but you should ask Seven not me.

    David, has Dannii signed to return as a judge for the upcoming series?

  20. deedeedragons September 12, 2011 at 4:10 pm -

    That was quick.

  21. Julian September 12, 2011 at 3:01 pm -

    With AGT, X Factor, The Voice and Young Talent Time airing next year, there have no been so many talent shows vying for the same talent.

  22. Kuttsywood September 12, 2011 at 2:56 pm -

    Seven will likely be competing for younger talent with Ten’s Young Talent Time revival, whose auditions are actually starting this weekend.

    But that doesn’t mean, we won’t find another young gem like Vidgen in the 2012 AGT class…
