NBC's hit show, America's Got Talent, is holding auditions in Tacoma this weekend. Hundreds of people show up on Saturday morning eager to showcase their talents.
 
"We're looking for unique acts that are different from anything else we've seen," said Jason Raff, Executive producer of America's Got Talent.
 
The talent at the Tacoma Convention Center was diverse, with everything from a bulldog on a rocking horse to a miniature Elvis Presley impersonator and everything in between.  Many people have tried to get on the show before.
 
"We auditioned last year too and it was a ton of fun so we wanted to come back. It's a good chance to have more people hear our music," said Chloe O'Brien, lead singer of a band that's auditioning.
 
Auditions are being held at the Tacoma Convention Center both Saturday and Sunday until 7 p.m.

Producers are expecting to see almost 2,000 acts on this final stop of the nationwide audition tour.
