    You might have already entered the contest on SimplyC360.com. This is another way to get chosen for the in-person line up.

    The "Wild Card" is another way to enter the talent shows.

    Kenan is trying to choose the specific people for his line up for your local show(s). We have had over 1,000 participants across the country enter and we want to make sure the best-of-the-best are on the line-up.

    Good news (maybe): You might be on the VIP list from your local Talent Scouts, however we don't know yet. (Still waiting for all those scouts to send the lists of their favorites to Kenan)

    The WILD CARD is another way to possibly get on the show line-up for your city. We have limited spots on the shows, so the wild card helps us see who is great and ready to actually win.

    Upload a video and we can have our judges and the online voters vote. They will help us choose who is the best and deserves a spot on the local city show.

    How to submit your video?

    Please provide us a ONE to FOUR (1-6) minute video of your stage act? The shorter the video the better, viewers dislike long videos.

    Make sure it is PG13 (Due to the family-friendly nature of our online audience, submissions cannot contain profanity, offensive language, be sexually explicit, or vulgar in nature. Save that for the stage.)

    So pull out your devices or grab a link from the internet and get ready for YOUR chance to win Kenan Presents' Young Stars Talent Shows in your city and then at the finale in New York City. Your submission needs to be original - whether it’s a skit, testimonial, or something else, we want to know YOU and why YOU deserve to perform in Kenan Thompson's showcase! Once your video is uploaded to our online voting site, we will send you a link to share with your fans on social media.
