Default Bad celebrity impressions

What MADtv celebrity impressions did you guys think were awful or inaccurate? Here's some that I didn't like:
Lance Bass (Will Sasso)
Shaquille O'Neill (Aries Spears)
Mandy Moore (Kathryn Fiore)
Keanu Reeves (Andrew Bowen)
Bill Clinton (Bryan Callen)
Magic Johnson (Aries Spears)
Carson Daly (Pat Kilbane)
Eminem (Josh Meyers)
50 Cent (Aries Spears)
Fred Durst (Will Sasso)
Matthew McConaughey (Josh Meyers)
Michael Jackson (Aries Spears)
Sisqo (Aries Spears)
Hillary Duff (Stephnie Weir)
Celine Dion (Nicole Sullivan)
Vin Diesel (Ike Barinholtz)
Sean Connery (Pat Kilbane)
Al Gore (Michael McDonald)
The Friends Cast (various cast members)
N'Sync (various cast members)
I dunno...that's all I can think of right now. I am sure that there are a lot more. Anybody else have any ideas?

Eh. I like Will's Lance Bass but I agree that it's not such a good IMPRESSION. It's just funny. But man, Will's Fred Durst is great. "Posin'" is my favorite MadTV music video of all time.

What's wrong with Andrew's Keanu Reeves impression? It's actually extremely accurate, esp. if you've seen some of his earlier work.

I never liked the early Bill Clinton impression by Bryan Callen.

God, thats alot of impressions... Lol. I agree with most of them. I think stephnie is excused from her Hilary Duff impression though, because they weren't realy focused on her impression for that sketch, she was just sort of a filler, because, comon who else would play hilary?

How could you say that Will Sasso's Fred Durst was inaccurate? I think it was INCREDIBLY accurate. And Josh Meyers's Mathew M. Is okay.

Are you kidding? Frank is an excellent impressionist. I have both of his albums. I don't think they are all that funny, but they are worth the money just for the flawless impressions alone. Name one impression of his that doesn't sound like the celebrity he is impersonating.

Yeah, that's true. I did like the "Posin" video. I guess I was thinking of that awful Limp Bizkit Rolling Stone Interview sketch. That was painful.

I think that all of Aries' impressions are bad. Andrew Bowen's Keanu, other than really being the only impression he ever did, was eerily accurate. I like all of Franks Impressions although his John Madden is really starting to get on my nerves.

Nicole's Celine Dion wasn't that good.

I didn't like Christians George W.

But most of the above ones I agree with.

Michael McDonald's Bob Barker and Bill O'Reilly. I'm guessing he wasn't really going for accuracy, because in both of these he just wore a wig and talked in his normal voice.

How can you say Aries' 50 Cent is bad? He sounds so much like him, he nailed that impression. Anyways, I haven't seen to many really terrible impression, but Christian as George W. Bush, Nicole Sullivan as Hilary Clinton, Michael McDonald as Al Gore, Aries as Shaquille O' Neil, and Danielle Gaither as Beyonce Knowles were all pretty bad.

Oh and Michael's impressions are, in general, really really bad....with the exception of the brother from "Everybody Loves Raymond." His best impressions (Linda Tripp, Andra, etc.) aren't even accurate, just funny b/c of his actions/appearance.

I also think Frank is good, but his impressions are really overrated. And for someone who has only that going for him, I would say he - with the exception of Ron - is probably the weakest cast member.

I liked most the impressions you listed off! Some of them were okay impressions I admit. Although not every impression someone does is gonna be a super fantastic one.

Yeah I agree with the Andra comment, but just impersonating a celebrity is redundant and boring... most "celebrities" make big enough fools of themselves in the media these days, so there is no need for a carbon copy. When they take one facet of a celebrity's personality (Andra= This is bullsh*t!) and use Michael to play Andra, I don't think there is the need for him to have a good impression or even the same voice/look because all they are doing is making fun of the personality trait. Speaking of Michael's impressions, do you not think Dr Phil is a great impression? Simon Cowell? Michael is great.

Not exactly. His impression of Andra isn't totally accurate either, cuz she said "this is bullsh*t" ONCE on the show and she doesn't jump up and down with her boobs floppin all over the place
