In this FOX network reality series, amateur performers competed in talent contests by impersonating their favorite celebrities, with the help of vocal coaches and makeup artists. Out of hundreds of wannabes, five contestants were chosen for each week's episode, with the winners from those episodes vying for a grand prize on the final installment. If one really wanted to see an endless parade of ersatz Britney Spearses, Whitney Houstons, and Christina Aguileras, this was the place to be. Performing As... debuted August 26, 2003.
