Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending Julia to the Judge Cuts.

Judge Cuts[]

Julia Scotti's Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1108 consisted of joking about pursuing stand-up comedy because she needs burial money, her family wanting her life insurance money for food, and wanting to lose weight before being cremated. Julia's performance was strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals instead of Steven Brundage.


Julia Scotti's Week 3 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1115 consisted of joking about her dating life and how she would hate to "spoon." She ended her set by talking about having a man in prison so she would only have to see him once a year on their anniversary.
