CityTV’s first season of Canada’s Got Talent is set to launch in just a few months and for the last half of 2011, producers scoured the country looking for the best (and maybe the worst) musicians, singers, comedians and whatever else you consider a talent, that Canada has to offer.

If you’re like so many people that tried out and didn’t make it to the final rounds, or maybe you never even made it to the auditions, there is still hope for you. Canada’s Got Talent producers have just announced that they aren’t quite done searching for contestants.

For all those talented Canadians looking for one final moment in the spotlight, now’s your chance. Launching today on Canadians are invited to show off their talents with Last Chance Auditions by uploading a video of their act online at

Last Chance Auditions runs through January 15 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Videos must not exceed two minutes and all music selections must be chosen from the list of pre-cleared songs provided.

The Top 20 YouTube auditions will be posted on the website for fans to review, then it’s up to Canada to choose who will be the lucky act fast-tracked to the Canada’s Got Talent semifinals in April. From January 23 through January 30, the public can visit the show’s website and vote once per day. The act receiving the most votes will get the chance to claim the top spot and prize on Canada’s Got Talent. Other YouTube acts will be considered for the semifinals by the Canada’s Got Talent judges – Martin Short, Measha Brueggergosman and Stephan Moccio – and the show’s producers.

Is there a Canadian version of Rebecca Black? I have a feeling we’re about to find out.

Canada’s Got Talent premieres March 4 on Citytv.
