You’ve seen America’s Got Talent. Now Nashville, Tennessee, has its very own community version – Temple’s Got Talent – debuting March 10, 2019. Auditions are open through January 15, 2019 for any Middle Tennessee resident.

This community talent show is open to Music City’s undiscovered talent. Organizers are looking for acts of all varieties, from music and comedy to magicians and jugglers.

To ensure fairness, all acts will be separated into various age groups: 8-17, 18-55 and 55 and over. Group performers are welcome. Acts will be judged by renowned professionals in the entertainment and music industry.

Selected acts will perform at Temple’s Got Talent show on March 10, 2019, at The Temple – Congregation Ohabai Sholom, located at 5015 Harding Place, Nashville. Proceeds will benefit The Temple.

The public is invited to audition, regardless of religious affiliation or membership in The Temple – Congregation Ohabai Sholom, the event’s sponsoring organization and beneficiary of proceeds.

“Auditions are by video, not in person,” said Neal Spielberg, owner of Spielberg Entertainment & Consulting, one of several event coordinators involved in the show’s launch. “Simply use your cell phone’s video camera to tape your act.”

To enter, submit your 90-second audition video file or YouTube link online to, its official web site where competition rules are posted. If you are multi-talented, you may submit another entry for a different talent.

Deadline for entries is January 15, 2019. Audition fee is $25 per entry.
