"AMERICA'S GOT TALENT" ANNOUNCES THIRD ANNUAL YOUTUBE SNAPPLE AUDITIONS

NBC, FremantleMedia, Syco and YouTube Join Forces Again, Along with New Sponsor Snapple, for Online Auditions that Made 10-Year-Old Season Five Finalist Jackie Evancho a Star

Season 7 of NBC's #1 Summer Series Premieres Monday, May 14 at 8PM ET

New York, NY - May 7, 2012 - NBC's "America's Got Talent" and its producers have again collaborated with YouTube, and for the first time, show sponsor Snapple, to allow talented acts from across the country the opportunity to audition online for their shot at stardom and a million-dollar prize. The online auditions will be voted upon by the viewers in the YouTube Snapple episodes airing in August on NBC, and the top 20 acts will compete at their shot at stardom for sought-after slots in the semi-final round of the competition show. Those selected to enter the semi-finals will then face the AGT judges panel - - - new judge Howard Stern, who joins fellow judges Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne.

Following the June 1 deadline, producers will select 20 acts for the YouTube community to view and vote for their favorites. The #1 YouTube act with the most qualifying votes will gain a place on the YouTube Snapple quarterfinal performance episode. 11 other acts found on YouTube will also perform on the special live show and will be competing for slots in the semi-finals.

Much like season 5 finalist Jackie Evancho, who became a worldwide singing sensation after her online submission led to her competing on the #1 summer series, hopefuls once again can audition online by submitting their videos via the YouTube/Snapple audition program.

Now through June 1, United States-based acts of all ages can now upload their audition videos via the "America's Got Talent" Audition App, or at www.youtube.com/americasgottalent, or at www.nbc.com/agt or the Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/nbcagt. All submissions are subject to the terms and conditions of the competition.

"America's Got Talent" will premiere with two two-hour episodes on Monday, May 14 (8-10 p.m. ET) and Tuesday, May 15 (8-10 p.m. ET). The series then resumes in its regular day and time on Monday, May 21 (8-9 p.m. ET) and on Tuesday, May 22 (9-10 p.m. ET).

In addition, once again, "America's Got Talent," YouTube and Snapple have taken the online audition element to the next level, allowing submissions via a new iPhone and Android app, which gives potential acts the opportunity to submit audition videos from their handheld devices. This app allows these users to record and upload a video directly to YouTube and submit it as an official "America's Got Talent" audition.
