Audition

Grandma Lee's Houston audition in Episode 406 consisted of joking about topics such as her divorced husband breaking even at a casino, her wanting to be cremated at a Krispy Kreme, and her daughter telling her she was no longer a virgin. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all voted "Yes", sending Lee to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round

Grandma Lee appeared without performing in the Vegas Round. Her audition was strong enough for the judges to send her to the Quarterfinals in Episode 412.

Quarterfinals

Grandma Lee's Week 1 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 413 consisted of screaming "Cut the Crap," her own catchphrase, joking about looking better than most people her age, missing a kidney, and finding Piers Morgan's underpants in her room and David Hasselhoff's underpants in the limo that morning. Lee received enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 414 instead of The Platt Brothers and The Diva League.

Semifinals

Grandma Lee's Week 1 Semifinals performance in Episode 421 consisted of joking about others (especially Piers Morgan and David Hasselhoff) wanting her body, divorcing over religion, and her disdain for her (fictional) ex-husband Dwayne. Lee received enough votes to be sent to the Finals in Episode 422 instead of Paradizo Dance and Tony Hoard & Rory.

Finals

Grandma Lee's Finals performance in Episode 425 consisted of joking about being pregnant with Piers Morgan's child, her kids wanting to put her in a retirement home, her kids asking her to stop smoking, going bra shopping, and moving onto Simon Cowell due to Piers ignoring her. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all gave her standing ovations.

Finale

Grandma Lee did not receive enough votes to be included in the Top 5, eliminating her from the competition in Episode 426 instead of Recycled Percussion.
