Ann Arbor's favorite wolf-masked fiddler is slated to broadcast his fanged mug across the country on NBC's multivalent "America's Got Talent" tonight at 8pm. 

Conspicuous on Ann Arbor's sidewalks, narrating street corners with his unorthodox costumed live violin playing, Violin Monster is expected to make a brief appearance on tonight's season 11 premier, which will feature the ever-caustic-yet-honest Simon Cowell sitting on the judging panel alongside Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum. Nick Cannon remains the show's host. 

Viewers can look out for footage of the Violin Monster's audition for the show in the next couple weeks, according to Mlive.com. On behalf of Washtenaw County, let's hope he's not wolf bait for Simon Cowell.
