Judge Cuts

Dana Daniels' Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1010 consisted of having Howie Mandel sign a 20-dollar bill. Dana then created the illusion of the bill disappearing from a paper beak attached to Howie's head and appearing in an egg laid by his bird Luigi. Dana's performance was not strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals, eliminating him from the competition along with Oleksiy Mogylnyy, instead of Vita Radionova.
