The auditions for the first series of China's Got Talent were pre-selected by the producers of the show from preliminary auditions. The auditions were held in Shanghai Concert Hall from July 25 to September 5. In China's version of Got Talent franchise, judges pressing 'X' does not always mean that they do not like the contestant's performance. It is a way to stop the performance as judges has heard enough and are satisfied.
