Ryan Beard, who is from Kansas City, Kansas, was homeschooled by his parents. He did not actually take his Mom to his prom; he attended a homeschooled prom with a girl his age. 
Ryan Beard's audition in Episode 1105 consisted of singing his original comedic song "Ladies' Man" while playing the piano. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending Ryan to the Judge Cuts.
Ryan Beard's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1109 consisted of performing another original song while playing the piano about wanting to meet a nice girl. Simon Cowell buzzed the act. Ryan's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals, eliminating him from the competition along with Sam Morril, instead of Tape Face.
