ARE you a popstar of the future?  

Did you run away with the circus?  

Can you train your dog to sing the anthem?    

All talents, no matter how big or small, are being invited to attend auditions for Australia's Got Talent here on the Coffs Coast.   

Expect queues of starlets singing scales at the March 19 auditions, to be held at Opal Cove Resort from 11am-6pm.   Australia's Got Talent will spend its 2013 on a new TV network, having been axed by Channel 7 in October and quickly picked up by Channel 9.  

The new show promises fresh hosts and some 'showbiz heavywights' on an all-new judging panel.  

Australian viewers will once again determine the winner of a jackpot $250,000 cash prize.  

People planning on attending auditions will have only two minutes to impress the show's producers, and therer are several guidelines to follow:  

- If you're under 18, you need to take a legal guardian to your audition

- If your act uses recorded music, take it on a CD or an iPod

- If any act has special requirements involving fire, animals or dangerous stunts, please make the audition staff aware on your arrival

- There might be a lot of waiting around, so take a book, some water and some light snacks  

To secure an audition spot, email gottalent@fremantlemedia.com.au for an application form.   

If you can't make the auditions but still want judges to marvel at your amazing talents, you can send a DVD of your performance to Australia's Got Talent, Locked Bag 2222, St Leonards NSW 2065.

Is privacy coming at a cost of an aerial perspective?
