America's Got Talent Wiki

The Doctor Benji was a singer and keyboardist from Season 9 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the audition round.


The Doctor Benji, whose full name is Benjamin Mcallister, considers himself a doctor of both music and hair and skin electrology. He is a surgeon during the day and keyboardist at night. He likes to tell women he is under 50; he jokes that he has lied about his age so much he has forgotten his real age. He is the father of nine children and has four great grandchildren.


The Doctor Benji's audition in Episode 904 consisted of playing the keyboard to and singing "Dancing in the Street" with a synthesizer in his microphone. Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel all buzzed the act. All four judges voted "No," eliminating Benji from the competition. After Benji's audition had ended, Nick Cannon began experimenting with the synthesizer microphone to the audience's amusement.
