Mr. Bill, real name Bill Ratner, was a professional school bus driver from Las Vegas, Nevada. His dream was to become a professional performer. His boss convinced him to audition for America's Got Talent.
Mr. Bill's audition in Episode 201 consisted of singing "Climb Ev'ry Mountain". Piers Morgan buzzed the act. Although Sharon Osbourne voted "Yes", Piers and David Hasselhoff both voted "No", eliminating Mr. Bill from the competition.
Mr. Bill passed away on July 30, 2012, after a battle with leukemia.
