Jamaican Olympian Shevon Stoddart is auditioning for NBC's America's Got Talent.

"Hey Everyone, America’s Got Talent Premieres Tuesday, May 26 on @NBC and look who auditioned Please tune in and look out for your girl," the 37-year-old former 400m hurdler posted on her twitter page on Tuesday.

America’s Got Talent is now looking to find more contestants for its upcoming season after re-opening its online auditions. The Fremantle-produced show had been taping auditions with judges in Los Angeles since March 2 with filming supposed to continue through March 20 but was shut down on March 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Stoddart represented Jamaica at the Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. She also ran at the Helsinki 2005 and Beijing 2015 World Championships.

Stoddart married two-time American Olympic high jumper Jamie Nieto in July 2017, 15 months after the American suffered a spinal cord injury on a misjudged backflip that left him partially paralyzed, with no feeling in his hands or feet. 

Season 15 of America's Got Talent will feature judges including Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum. Modern Family star Sofia Vergara has also joined for the first time, alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Terry Crews, who has previously hosted the show.
