A.I. hopeful Shaun Kraisman failed his singing audition, but he could have nailed a Ryan Seacrest look-alike contest.
The 26-year-old sales consultant from Mount Pleasant, South Carolina impressed the judges with his spot-on impression of the multi-hyphenate TV and radio personality.
"Will you work for half of Ryan's pay?" joked Randy Jackson.
Prior to Shaun's audition, the judges started the day off on the right foot in Savannah, Georgia. Their first singer, David "Mr. Steal Your Girl" Leathers, Jr. set the bar unusually high for the competition's first day. The 17-year-old crooner, who beat last year's winner Scotty McCreery in a 2009 talent competition, was immediately awarded the green light to go to Hollywood.
