If you are a listener and fan of the Howard Stern Show, then you know the name Rachel Butera. Rachel has been a frequent guest and caller on the SiriusXM radio show for a few years now doing spot-on impressions of both celebrities and the female guests and staff of the show.
Earlier in the week, Rachel Butera auditioned for the NBC reality talent show, America’s Got Talent. Since Howard Stern is a judge on AGT, you would think a regular guest on his show, due to her talent, would get at least one automatic vote. Unfortunately, and to Rachel’s dismay, Howard quickly announced that he was not allowed to vote due to their history together.
Since two votes are needed to make the cut on AGT, the odds dropped from two out of four, to two out of three. The odds didn’t matter to Rachel as she started her act and immediately killed it… wowing both the panel of judges and the entire crowd.
You can see a YouTube clip of the entire act below:
Howard Stern’s Rachel Butera on AGT:
The impressions were spot-on and the routine was hilarious and a national viewing audience was treated to a talent that Howard Stern fans are no stranger to. Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum all voted yes for Rachel to continue on AGT and gave the act high praise. Even though his vote didn’t count, Howard Stern expressed how proud he was of Rachel and that she hit a home run.
You can follow Rachel Butera on Twitter, but after her television debut, I’m sure we’ll be seeing much more of her in the near future.
