America's Got Talent auditions in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — An audition call for the NBC talent show "America's Got Talent" is being held in New Orleans.

The Big Easy is one of more than a dozen cities where the show's nationwide search for its next big act will be held.

Performers get just 90 seconds to impress producers, and the top prize is $1 million plus a headlining show in Las Vegas.

Auditions for the show, which is in its 8th season, are scheduled Feb. 15-16 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. There

is no age requirement.

Previous auditions have included musicians, dance crews, magicians, contortionists, comedians, singers, jugglers and animal

acts.

Last season's winner was Richard and Nick Olate, of Olate Dogs, a fast-paced act filled with impressive dog tricks.
