* Under 18? EVERY CONTESTANT under the age of 18 must have permission from a parent or legal guardian to audition and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at the audition location and showcase, if successful.

* Animal Acts: Additional Paperwork Required! Any acts involving an animal must arrive at the audition with up to date paperwork from your veterinarian.  

* Length of Acts: Any act selected for the live taping will be limited to a time limit of 90 seconds maximum. If you exceed this time, it may reflect poorly on your results. Choose the portion of your piece that highlights your abilities (i.e. singers find the song which best features your vocal range and abilities.)  

* Use of Original Material: All music and content used must be original. No commercial or copyrighted material is allowed to be used. This means singers must use original music that they have permission to perform live and on television.
