Celebrity impersonator Vincent Marcus has only performed his act online. He hits the big stage for the first time when he auditions for America’s Got Talent in front of judges Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara.

When Howie asks Vincent what he does for a living he answers, “Social media.” It’s a vague answer. But what he really means is that he’s “never” done his act in front of a live audience. Then he launches into a bit that involves rappers doing nursery rhymes.

Eminem,  Snoop Dogg, Pitbull, Wonder Mike, and Jay Z spit out Itsy Bitsy Spider, Patty Cake, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Hickory Dickory Dock and Humpty Dumpty. Do the judges like it? Simon raises his fist in the air afterward.

America’s Got Talent premieres on NBC Tuesday May 26 at 8 pm ET/PT.

Watch Vincent Marcus impressions on AGT below.

“I started imitating my friends and my teachers and it got me in trouble. But when my teachers would ask me to do the impressions of other teachers and say, ‘That’s funny,’ they gave me the validation I needed that maybe I should do this,” Marcus told the El Paso Times in an interview.

“I hadn’t done anything like performing live in front of a mass audience and I wanted to take it to the next level,” he added. “I wanted to step outside my comfort zone.”

Vincent Marcus’ Funniest Moments

Vincent Auditions For ‘AGT’

In his audition, Vincent Marcus tells the judges that he’s never done his impressions in front of a live audience. The crowd seems skeptical at first, but when he starts performing nursery rhymes in the style of famous rappers, they go wild over it.


Vincent impersonates everyone from Eminem to Jay-Z, prompting a standing ovation from the audience. We’ll have to wait and see if the judges send him through, although it certainly looks like they enjoyed it.

Vincent’s Viral Rap Impressions

Vincent’s AGT audition isn’t the first time he’s shown off his rap impressions. The above video, in which he transitions between Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Notorious B.I.G., and more, has over 1 million views on YouTube. “He sounds like snoop dogg more than snoop dogg himself,” one viewer commented.

Dad At Disneyland Video

Vincent Marcus took his comedy on location in Disneyland for this funny video, in which he parodies how a lot of dads behave at the Happiest Place on Earth. From putting his glasses on to take a photo, to complaining about how expensive everything is, the sketch is definitely relatable. And who could forget how much dads like turkey legs?

‘Family Guy’ Characters Sing Ariana Grande

Vincent frequently impersonates the various characters on the animated series Family Guy. In the clip above, he has Peter Griffin, Stewie, Cleveland Brown, and more sing “Thank U, Next” by Ariana Grande. Of course, he changed the lyrics up a bit to make them more Family Guy-appropriate. (By which we mean, it’s about poop.)


Vincent Beatboxes With His Baby On Vine

Back when Vine was a popular platform for short, funny videos, Vincent Marcus posted a clip of him and his baby daughter. He uses her adorable babbling as background for his beatboxing talents. In only 10 seconds, Vincent made us laugh and want to dance at the same time.

Celebrities Singing ‘Imagine’

In March, Vincent and fellow impressionist Manon Mathews collaborated on a parody of the viral video featuring celebrities singing “Imagine” together. Vincent impersonated everyone from Robert Downey Jr. to Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.

Be sure to catch Vincent on Season 15 of America’s Got Talent.

‘AGT': Vine Star Vincent Marcus Tries His Hand at Impersonating Eminem, 50 Cent, DaBaby (Video)

“AGT” ain’t Vine, but Vincent Marcus is doing his damndest to stretch that six seconds of fame into a career. So far he’s at about “15-minutes-of-fame” status with these two-minute acts on ‘America’s Got Talent.”

On Tuesday’s episode, Marcus performed “Voice Impressions of Your Favorite Rappers” — so long as your favorite rappers are Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent. Lil Nas X, DaBaby and Eminem.

Some were better than others. The beats and pyro helped — the nursery rhymes probably did not.

America’s Got Talent judges stunned by Vincent Marcus’ incredible impressions of different rappers

America's Got Talent judges stunned by Vincent Marcus' incredible rapper impressions

American Got Talent judges have seen a lot of great impressions over the years but they weren’t quite prepared for Vincent Marcus’ act.

The social media star seriously impressed the judges and members of the audience with his uncanny impression of famous rappers.

In a preview clip shared by the America’s Got Talent, Vincent takes to the stage and admits that this is the first time he has done his act in front of a live audience.

Naturally Simon Cowell and some of the audience weren’t too sure how to feel about that.

But Vincent soon proved he had what it takes to captivate the audience – and then some.

He announced that he would be performing classic nursery rhymes as some of the world’s favorite rappers, before starting off with an impersonation of Eminem.

The uncanny impression literally caused people to drop their jaw in shock, while other rose to their feet to cheer him on.

Vincent mimicked the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Pitbull and Jay Z.

From the smile on Simon’s face, it feels safe to say we’ll be Vincent go through to the next round when the show returns to screens on Tuesday night.

The clip comes after another audition was shared online, which left fans stunned for a completely different reason.

The audition is especially unique because Archie Williams was wrongfully incarcerated for 37 years, and only became a free man in 2019.

Simon wrote: ‘This is Archie Williams. I will never forget this audition for the rest of my life. And I’ll never listen to this song in the same way ever again.’

The clip sees Archie arriving on stage to perform Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me by George Michael and Elton John.

The impressionist from El Paso was eliminated last night (Aug. 19), losing to BAD Salsa, an Indian salsa dancing duo who has participated in many national and international dance competitions and won the fourth season of India's Got Talent

Vincent’s hope of keeping the dream to headline a show in Las Vegas alive was put in jeopardy after his rappers doing nursery rhymes bit the night before wasn’t as well received as the one that got him there.

This time around, the judges weren’t as enthusiastic about his performance as they were back in May when it earned him four yeses and glowing reviews.

Tuesday night’s routine received a split decision. Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson, who stepped in for an injured Simon Cowell, and Sofia Vergara offered mostly positive remarks, but Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel were much more critical. “I didn’t like it as much as your last one,” said Howie, referring to his audition.

After the show aired, the Burges High School and UTEP graduate hit up Instagram with a quick, exclamation point-filled announcement of his elimination. “AAAAND I’M ELIMINATED!!! It was fun! Love you AGT!”

Many of the web sites and blogs that specialize in reality TV show news and updates, as well as the countless who comment on them, felt Vincent didn’t show any diversity by rehashing the rappers routine.

Marcus became an internet sensation in 2014 during the glory days of Vine showcasing his sick beat-boxing skills and dead-on Family Guy impressions. He moved to Los Angeles four years ago where he continues to pursue his dream of sleeping late and going to work in sweatpants and sandals a few times a week as a voice actor.
