Jordan McKnight's audition in Episode 1007 consisted of performing contortion feats such as bending her legs over her head while standing on her hands and bending her head behind her back. At least three judges voted "Yes," sending Jordan to the Judge Cuts round.
Jordan McKnight did not perform in the Judge Cuts round, meaning she either withdrew or was cut by the judges before this stage of the competition.
