'Police Academy' legend Michael Winslow to audition for 'America's…

After stepping away from the limelight decades ago, actor Michael Winslow returned last night and made its debut at the America’s Got Talent stage as one of the more famous acts to have ever tried out for the show. The police school and space balls star played out his quirky “voice-tramentalist” talents for judges Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara, showing off his uncanny ability to transform his voice into just about any sound.

Before his audition, Winslow—dubbed a “legend” by host Terry Crews—explained why he left the industry in the 90s and why he’s making his comeback now, years later. Thanks to his son, he said, he was inspired to audition for… AGT.

“In the end I did quite well. But I stopped making movies because I quit the business for my kids. I had to raise them because I became a widower. Now, after raising my two children, I’m in a different phase. I think this is my time,” Winslow explained in last night’s episode, per People. “And America’s Got Talent is the place for me to show the world that I still have something to offer, I still have some noises to make. There is still room for some more.”

When Winslow took the stage, Cowell, who is notoriously hard to impress, couldn’t hide his excitement. “We know you!” he said. “I can’t tell you how happy I am to have you here.” Mandel praised Winslow as “a pioneer”, adding, “Thank you so much for being here.”

During the police school star’s performance, he introduced himself as “The Man of 10,000 Sound Effects,” joking that “we’re in the hundreds of thousands now,” before showing off his talents. Prior to his comedy set, Winslow told audiences that making noises was something he’d always done since childhood, when he was an “air force candy” who had to make his own friends.

He then began his impressive routine, imitating everything from an airplane to a radio. His performance paid off, Winslow earned four yes votes from the judges and moved him to the next round. “I always say the best races I like to watch because I love car racing, sometimes all the great champions come back and compete with the rookies. And that’s what makes it a real competition,” Cowell said. “So the fact that you’ve come and set a standard here is just so exciting to me. I’m absolutely ecstatic. That’s how you do it.”

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8/7 on NBC. Watch Winslow’s full performance in the video above.
