America's Got Talent, NBC's hit summer series from American Idol producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television, will be traveling to Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York as part of a nationwide search for the hottest performers in the country to compete in the blockbuster reality show's third season.

Auditions and show tapings take place in each city as an array of hopeful stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists of all ages strut and perform on stage in front of judges David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne. Additionally, members of the public are invited to attend the tapings and judge the acts along with the show's judges.

A ventriloquist from Dallas, Texas, Terry Fator's life changed forever last August when he was crowned the second season champion. Not only did he win the $1,000,000 grand prize, but his lifelong dream to headline on the Las Vegas strip came true when he signed a 2008 contract with The Las Vegas Hilton in a deal worth more than $1.5 million dollars.
