Poose the Puppet's audition in Episode 1804 consisted of doing puppetry. Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell all buzzed the act (Sofia buzzing for Heidi). All 4 judges voted "No" eliminating him from the competition. As Poose walked offstage, the puppet put a "curse" on Simon, causing him to lose his voice for the rest of the episode.
