"About two months ago I sent in a video of my singing and playing guitar at one of my shows, and I got an email from one of the producers saying I get to skip the call lines and have a private audition," said Lakey in an email. "So it's kind of special!"
The audition will be the first step in a process that could end up with Lakey featured on the TV show, a popular NBC talent competition. "America's Got Talent" is now heading into its eighth season, with a panel of judges that most recently included Howard Stern, Sharon Osborne, and Howie Mandel.
The ultimate winner of each season's competition gets a $1 million prize.
