    No, 1) are does not work with singular "person," 2) you're saying that the 'person' is flawless, rather than the impersonation. 

    better: Every impersonation he performed was flawless.  or even "Every impersonation was flawless."

    The verb should be singular. Your sentence says that the people are perfect. That's unlikely- no one is perfect!  If you are trying to describe his impersonations, say "His impersonations are flawless."

    Wrong.  EveryONE is singular, and you can't use the plural "are" with a singular subject.  Use "was" instead.

    It should be is flawless, but to avoid this issue try: His impersonations are flawless.

    It should be:  Everyone he impersonated is flawless.  "Everyone" seems to be a plural noun, but it is actually a singular one.
