Ms. Donna's audition in Episode 502 consisted of twirling flaming Samoan knives to "If the House is Rockin'." Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all buzzed the act. Although Howie voted "No," Piers and Sharon both voted "Yes," sending Ms. Donna to the Vegas Round. <Audition

Vegas Round

Ms. Donna was one of the Judges' Favorites in the Vegas Round. She was sorted into the "Danger Acts" category. Her performance in Episode 511 consisted of again twirling Samoan fire knives. At one point in Ms. Donna's performance, she failed to catch a knife that she threw up. Her performance was not strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals, eliminating her from the competition along with Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show.

Audition All Stars

Ms. Donna performed as one of the ten Audition All Stars in the Season 5 America's Got Talent finale. Her role in Episode 532 consisted of twirling Samoan knives and briefly dancing to "I Gotta Feeling."


  • Ms. Donna was one of only two Season 5 acts (the other being Mary Ellen) to have been buzzed by all three judges yet progressed to the next round.
  • She was the only Audition All Star that actually progressed to the Vegas Round.
