America's Got Talent Wiki

Scott Alexander was a magician from Season 6 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.


Scott Alexander's life became magic when he received a book of illusions and tricks from his godmother at the age of six. He continued to practice his magic all through elementary and high school, until he became a full time entertainer upon graduating college in 1995 where he earned a degree in theatre. While there, he met his wife Jenny in a play where she portrayed Cinderella and he played the prince.

Now a father of three, living in the Amish country of rural Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Scott devotes his life to his family and his dream of making people laugh, smile and wonder with his magic.

Pursuing his dreams remains a challenge for Scott, balancing a career on the road while raising a family of three. But with his wife Jenny by his side as his assistant and the support of his family, he will continue pursuing his dream of seeing his name in the lights of Las Vegas. 1


Scott Alexander's audition in Episode 601 consisted of apparently making a woman appear out of nowhere, be supported by water, then levitate. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all voted "Yes," sending him to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round[]

Scott Alexander was one of the Judges' Favorites in the Vegas Round. He was sorted into the "Magicians" category. His performance in Episode 611 consisted of an illusion in which a woman seemed to disappear upon moving from one half of a circle to the other, and then reappearing again. His audition was strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals.


Scott Alexander's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 619 consisted of an illusion in which a gospel choir disappeared and then reappeared a distance away. The act did not receive enough votes to finish in at least fifth place in America's Vote, eliminating him from the competition in Episode 620 along with Sam B, instead of Team iLuminate.

After the Show[]

Scott Alexander appeared on Season 2 of Penn & Teller: Fool Us as part of a double act with Season 7 contestant The Magic of Puck. They did not fool Penn & Teller.
