Wendy Liebman's audition was never televised. It is unknown whether or not she was buzzed, but at least three judges voted "Yes," sending Wendy to Judgment Week.

Judgment Week

Wendy Liebman was sorted into the "Comedians" category in Judgment Week. Her performance in Episode 907 consisted of joking about never knowing what to wear, her nagging to her husband, and her lack of reading. Wendy's performance was strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals along with Darik Santos in Episode 908.


Wendy Liebman's Week 3 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 913 consisted of joking about topics such as her putting on perfume, her lying about her age, and her spending money like she has it. Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel all gave her standing ovations. Wendy did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals, eliminating her from the competition in Episode 914, instead of Christian Stoinev.

Wild Card

On Twitter, America's Got Talent announced that Howard Stern selected Wendy Liebman as his Wild Card pick for the Semifinals, so Wendy returned to the competition.


Wendy Liebman's Week 2 Semifinals performance in Episode 919 consisted of joking about going to her kindergarten class reunion from kindergarten, but being disappointed she has gained a 100 pounds since kindergarten, her grandmother's marriage advice, how her husband proposed to her, and no one making her laugh as much as her husband in bed. Howard Stern and Howie Mandel both gave Wendy standing ovations. Wendy did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Top 12 Finals, eliminating her from the competition in Episode 920 along with Kelli Glover, instead of Emil and Dariel.
