Liang Patti's audition in Episode 202 consisted of balancing plates on sticks while performing contortion moves. Piers Morgan buzzed the act, trying to see if it would break her concentration and make her drop the plates, but she did not. After her act she started crying as a result of the buzz out of anxiety, so David Hasselhoff went up on stage to hug her. Eventually, Piers, Sharon Osbourne, and David all voted "Yes", sending Liang to the Vegas Round.
Liang Patti was sorted into the "Variety" category during the Vegas Round. Her performance in Episode 205 was not televised. The audition was not strong enough for the judges to include her in the Top 35 shortlist, eliminating her from the competition.
