America’s Got Talent Season 6 moved to Seattle this week, auditioning the talented and not-so-talented contestants in the Emerald City. Episode 2 aired on June 7, 2011.

Celebrity Impressionist

Last week, the auditions for Season 6 started strong. The judges found more talent than ever before. This week, Seattle didn’t offer quite as much talent, but there were certainly a few gems. The first was 23-year-old celebrity impressionist Melissa Villasenor, who nailed the voices of Natalie Portman, Barbara WaltersMiley Cyrus and Kathy Griffin. The judges were pleasantly surprised by her talent, and Sharon Osbourne even predicted that, with her abilities, she wouldn’t be working in retail sales much longer.

Zuma Zuma

After a number of rejections, including the A + C Twins, two opera singers, a cross-dressing dance group, some gansta rappers and a 69-year-old gymnast/baton twirler, we met Zuma Zuma, a group of acrobats from Kenya. They made a lot of amazing, difficult tricks look easy, and the judges sent them straight to Las Vegas.

PopLyfe

Next, we met some more talented people, including an 8-year-old singer, a male hip hop dance crew, and PopLyfe, a teenage pop group who performed Travie McCoy’s Billionaire. Piers was only willing to offer a “yes” if the singer, the only female in the group, would ditch her band and move on alone in the competition. Of course, she refused. But Howie and Sharon gave her entire band a ticket anyway.

The Paper Horn Man

Finally, we met the Paper Horn Man, a 56-year-old one-man band, who plays (you guessed it!) the paper horn! Piers became fed up with Howie’s antics and the ridiculous excuses for talent, and he stormed off set. America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon stalled by performing a duet with the Paper Horn Man while Piers collected himself, returned and delivered his vote: No!
