There’s another local act on NBC’s America’s Got Talent scheduled to air this spring.  WIBX has learned that Robert Channing, a ‘world famous mentalist and mind artist,’ has auditioned for Season 9 of America’s Got Talent and he’s made it on-stage during the New York City round.

Last week, Channing performed in front of celebrity judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum for a television taping at Madison Square Garden Theatre in Manhattan.  While family members who were in the audience say the local performer did ‘very well.’ they would not say if he advanced in the contest.  Auditions will continue April 21-26th at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

WIBX reached out to Channing who refused to give up any details.

“I can confirm that I auditioned and competed on America’s Got Talent.  What I did and whether I moved on to the next round are questions I can’t answer,” said Channing.

Channing performed with former AGT contestants Leon Etienne and Romy Low at the Stanley Theatre in Utica back in February.  During his ‘special guest appearance’ he performed a ‘speed painting’ stunt and created a portrait of Leon and Romy in just seconds on stage.

The new season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent debuts May 27th on NBC at 8 p.m..  The top acts from the New York and Los Angeles auditions will make it on the program.
