Jackie Evancho Not Performing with Tim Janis at Carnegie Hall in December

Word on the street was that Jackie Evancho was to perform at the famous Carnegie Hall in New York City on Dec. 2nd. In fact it would break a record:

Pittsburgh area fifth-grader Jackie Evancho is scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall in NYC on Dec 2 , and will be the youngest female vocal soloist ever to have performed at Carnegie Hall. –source

However, I just got work via Facebook that Jackie Evancho won’t be performing at Carnegie Hall in December. Here’s the note from Jackie’s mother:

Just wanted to give advanced notice to all jackie fans that she will not be performing with Tim Janis at Carnegie Hall this December. This was not an easy decision and we wish that things could have been different.

Can you imagine making these tough decisions? Seems like they’re doing their best to take care of Jackie since she is so young. I certainly applaud these efforts. Hard to imagine passing up Carnegie Hall though. That’s pretty amazing.

America’s Got Talent 2011 LA Auditions

Today and tomorrow are the auditions for America’s Got Talent 2011. You can probably still just show up tomorrow if you’re interested in auditioning. We just got our first person who auditioned in LA share their experience at the AGT auditions. Here it is:


We just finished out LA auditions for AGT. We went to the first audition in front of judges, were asked to wait, then were called to a second audition (played the same song) in front of the executive producers. They then took a picture of us and then were asked to wait for an interview. We gave the interview to a staff member who entered our info and then were done. We arrived at 4:00am and left at around 3:15pm. I feel really good , except for the fact that a few acts that made it to the interview stage like us were also asked to wait and were filmed for what seemed to be a TV spot. We were not. We will just have to wait and see. Thanks

Thanks for sharing. If you have other experiences, please leave them in the comments below for others to learn about the process.
