Dance choreographer Cris Judd returns as dance scout for NBC’s hit competition series America’s Got Talent – Season 11 with Nick Cannon as host, Howie Mandel, Mel B., Heidi Klum and, for the first time ever, Simon Cowell as judges. Judd, who is best known as a former dancer for Michael Jackson, dancing with him on his Dangerous and HIStory world tours, will help seek out the best dancers in America for AGT. From ballet to hip-hop and ballroom to tap, America’s Got Talent is seeking dancers across all genres for their chance to compete on live television. AGT will be hosting a private audition with Cris in Los Angeles on Feb. 23. Solo and group dance acts can now submit their videos online at www.AGTAuditions.com/dance for consideration to perform at the private audition.
