Dress to impress - Come with the outfit you want to wear on TV.
Also, the show recommends that singers keep in mind they will only have about a minute to perform so they need to start with their strongest song. Dancers, should only use 1 or 2 songs to perform to and not a mix.

- At Last
- You Raise Me Up
- The Climb

- Who’s Loving You
With that many people auditioning it is important to stand out and be noticed, not just noticed for your talent, but also for your originality, personality and look. Picking the right, not overdone song can help you get noticed for originality. AGT also recommends to have a cover song and an original song ready to perform.
For all acts, keep in mind that your act must work in the audition room and on stage in front of thousands. If your act will not work in a audition room, you are asked to bring in a DVD of you performing the act in a larger venue.
