Kaitlyn Maher, the Youngest Contestant of America’s Got Talent

NBC’s reality show of “America’s Got Talent” with more than 12 million viewers in the past season and expecting 25 million this year will make auditions to several states in U.S. such as New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Among the first 17 chosen in New York which was aired last June 17 is four-year-old Kaitlyn Maher from New York who says, “I am from America” whom she left the judges … speechless.

The judges are composed of Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and David Hasselhoff. Piers is a former editor of The Daily Mirror, a British tabloid newspaper, serving in that post from 1995 until 2004. He has also pursued careers in writing and television. Sharon Osbourne is so much more than Ozzy's wife. She began in the music industry at just fifteen years old, as a receptionist at her father, Don Arden's management company. While getting her feet wet in the business, she met the lead singer of Black Sabbath, John Michael Osbourne ... when she was 17. David Hasselhoff is most famous for his roles on Knight Rider and Baywatch.

Simon Cowell (Executive Producer) and NBC are scouring the country in search of the most talented person in America. Regis Philbin was the host of the first season. Taking over for him now is talk show host, Jerry Springer. David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan, & Brandy Norwood are judges of the first season. Brandy is replaced by Sharon Osbourne in the second season.

In this show, people show their talent and hope to impress the judges to reach to the top. The grand prize winner will win US$1,000,000! The show will feature talent from various people from balancing stuff off their teeth to even rock bands. If they don't have the talent to receive the grand prize, the judges kick them out off the competition. However, unless they impress to judges, they continue their quest. Who has the talent to receive the grand prize? Of course, it will be the one whom the viewers voted best.

Those who watched the show last Tuesday commented, “I was holding my 3 year old he loves the show ... when she started singing I started smiling and crying at the same time … This beautiful talented little girl is going to win, because if she can make people cry with just the first sentence, she is definitely a star.” Another said, “… What a wonderful little girl, I hope this beautiful girl goes far ... will always vote for you because you are America's next new star. ”

Among those who qualified in New York aside from four year-old singer, Maher, are Dancing Trombone Performer, Dancers, Hip Hop Violinists, Burlesque Dancers, Baton Twirler, Britney Spears Impersonator, Modern Cloggers, Opera Singer, Illusionist, Puppeteer, Performers, Singers, Hula-hooper, Cloggers, 15-year-old Singer and Hip Hop Dance Troop.
