Keerthi Srinivasanof Bangalore, India, isn’t taking any chances on making it to the “America’s Got Talent” stage.
Along with others hoping to impress at the Feb. 3 L.A. auditions, he’s aiming for a leg up with producers.
David Moore last week posted a Facebook note on Srinivasan’s behalf: “Keerthi Srinivasan in LA at last, auditioning for America’s Got Talent. Like the video to show support. Best of luck, man!”
After years at the Los Angeles Convention Center, “America’s Got Talent” will conduct its local producers audition at the Pasadena Convention Center.
The audition also gives would-be AGT stars a chance for a “Front of the Line Pass.”
Acts are advised to sign up for the open call, “but then also submit a video of your act by January 25. We will select some acts from the videos and offer them a Front of the Line pass,” says the official site.
Groups or individuals selected for the early pass will be notified by Feb. 1.
Auditions for the 13th season of the NBC show began Nov. 5 in Orlando and moved on to Cincinnati, Savannah Milwaukee, Houston, Las Vegas, New York and Nashville.
San Jose hosted an audition Friday and Phoenix follow Pasadena on Feb. 24 — the last scheduled preliminary trial.
Using a low-budget Oscar campaign, the AGT auditioners are looking for an edge in Twitter popularity.
