America’s Got Talent, the #1 alternative show of the summer for the past decade, has partnered with YouNow, the live streaming social network that’s been surging among teens and millennials, to host live open auditions for the upcoming Season 11.

Over the course of the next nine weeks, skilled hopefuls of any talent and age have an opportunity to perform for America’s Got Talent producers during hour-long open casting auditions being held on Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m. PT.  Acts will be able to showcase their talents in front of AGT producers to get a chance to perform in front of the America’s Got Talent judges, including the recently announced Simon Cowell.

Through the YouNow live social network, audiences and performers are able to connect in real time.  AGT hopefuls will get in front of the show’s producers on the interactive network and showcase their talent for the massive YouNow audience. Whether they are musicians, beat boxers, contortionists, comedians — all are welcome on the YouNow virtual stage.

YouNow founder/CEO Adi Sideman says, “With millions of viewers watching, talent regularly gets discovered on YouNow.  Having America’s Got Talent producers officially review acts on YouNow every week will make the opportunity to be part of the most popular talent show on TV within anyone’s reach. Talent can perform from the comfort of their homes and interact directly with the producers, live online.  I encourage anyone with a talent and a dream to log on to Wednesdays at 3:00 p.m. PT for their chance to win over the AGT producers.”
