Background

The Singing Trump is portrayed by Las Vegas singer - impersonator - comedian Jeff Trachta. Trachta has a highly successful act in Vegas currently, however, he is best known for playing Thorne Forrester for eight years on CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful and for playing Danny Zuko on Broadway in the Tommy Tune revival of "Grease." [1] His mission is to bring the country together through the gift of song and to make America's Got Talent great again. [2]

Audition

As the Singing Trump walked out on stage, the audience booed him and Mel B buzzed. His audition in Episode 1201 consisted of singing and dancing to Bruno Mars's "24K Magic" and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk." After the performance, the audience cheered for him and loved the performance, yet Mel B still was not impressed and voted "No." However, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell voted "Yes," sending The Singing Trump to the Judge Cuts.

Judge Cuts

The Singing Trump's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1207 consisted of him and four other men impersonating Trump's guards dancing to and singing Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)". Howie Mandel, Mel B, guest judge Chris Hardwick, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all gave him standing ovations. Mel B even mentioned she had a change of heart for him and apologized for how she acted before. The Singing Trump's performance was strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals instead of Dancing Pumpkin Man and Maw Kitty.

Quarterfinals

The Singing Trump's Week 1 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1211 consisted of him and background dancers dressed as Trump's guards dancing to and singing Walk The Moon's "Shut Up and Dance" and MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This." The Singing Trump did not receive enough votes to advance to the Semifinals in Episode 1212, eliminating him from the competition along with Puddles Pity Party, instead of Preacher Lawson.
