Melissa Villasenor Impersonated Ellen During Her Failed 'SNL' Audition - Watch Here!

Melissa Villasenor’s impression of Ellen DeGeneres is amazing!

The 33-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member sat down for an interview with Ellen on Tuesday (April 13) and recalled her first time auditioning for the show.

“You auditioned over ten years ago and I heard that in your audition, I was one of your impressions,” Ellen said. “What happened in the audition?”

“Well, you know that audition, the first one was great and you were in there Ellen,” Melissa replied. “I don’t remember the bit I did, but I think it had to do with ‘ABC,’ the Jackson Five song.”

Melissa then sang a couple bars of the song in her Ellen impersonation and it sounded just like her!

“That’s all I remember and I’m sorry it’s so bad,” Melissa said as Ellen laughed.

Melissa‘s impressions earned her a callback with Lorne Michaels, but unfortunately she didn’t get past the second round of auditions.

“But then you didn’t get it,” Ellen said.

“I wasn’t ready, I was 21,” Melissa replied. “I wasn’t funny.”

“And now you appreciate it more probably,” Ellen added as Melissa nodded.
