OH unicyclists audition for 'America's Got Talent'

CINCINNATI (AP) — Young unicyclists in the Cincinnati area are getting a 90-second shot at national fame.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/VbUZFj) that about a dozen members of the My Nose Turns Red Theatre Company will audition Sunday to be on NBC's "America's Got Talent."

They have 90 seconds to perform for a shot on the TV show.

Jean St. John, the circus troupe's managing director, says she got a call from a talent scout for the show asking the unicyclists to the audition.

The scout had seen a YouTube video of the preteen and teenage performers.

In the video, the unicyclists ride their contraptions in circles to swing music. At the end they flip the unicycles and pump their fists.

"America's Got Talent" has been holding auditions across the country since November.
