Despite an ever-rotating roster of judges, NBC’s show America’s Got Talent soldiers on with Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel, and Howard Stern. Being that a British woman, an OCD bald man, and a shock jock apparently are the best ones to judge “America,” the show is still finding success and seeking even more talent. That’s where you come in, Bay Area.

This Saturday and Sunday America’s Got Talent will be hosting open auditions all damn day, from 8am to 7pm at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in SF’s own Civic Center.

Pre-registration is open for all you eager beavers and multiple registration enthusiasts, so sign up here.

If you really think you have what it takes by being talented in whatever it is that you do, be prepared to show producers from the show your stuff this weekend.

If you make it to the next round, be prepared to perform in front of the shining faces of Osbourne, Mandel, and Stern February 24th and 25th.

Audition tips and advice include

1) Be original.
2) Don’t be boring.
3) Stand out from the crowd.
4) Be fearless.

Easy enough!
