Well, you probably guessed that America's Got Talent is filmed in the most star-studded state in all the land: California.

Specifically, episodes are filmed at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, per NBC.

Meanwhile, fans are warned, "Act fast, as tickets sell out quickly." If you are lucky enough to secure tickets, either print them out or keep them on your phone for entry into the filming.

It's also possible to attend the audition filmings, but those dates for Season 19 have already passed. There's always next year! In 2024, you can attend filming dates from Tuesday, Aug. 20 to Wednesday, Sept. 25.

As for just how fun attending a taping of AGT is, the proof is on social media.

To answer one final question that may be on your mind about attending a taping of an episode, it's quite a time commitment. One site said the experience lasts as long as four hours!

"The arduous day of clapping, standing, shouting, screaming, crying, and general audience mayhem is just exhausting and rather annoying," the site claims.
