Last season, "American's Got Talent" had three unique finalists: A comedian, a family dog act and a one-of-a-kind musical instrument.
The winner? A group of dogs that danced, performed jump rope tricks and even some gymnastics.
"Chicago is an important city for 'America's Got Talent,'" said senior casting producer Jason Shuler. "We have had several top talent audition at our Chicago open calls. Among them are Chicago group Footworkingz and the piano player from Edon from our most current season."
The show will be holding auditions on Jan. 26 and Jan. 27 at McCormick Place, 2301 Lake Shore Dr. Entrances can be found at Gate 4 or Gate 25.
On-site registration and check in is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can also preregister online.
The winner of this year's competition will take home a $1 million grand prize.
