Alexander Reached the Quarterfinals of Season 6
Alexander made it through the Season 6 Vegas round and into the Quarterfinals, where he performed an impressive illusion in which he made a gospel choir disappear on stage and reappear on the theater’s balcony.
Unfortunately, Alexander did not earn enough votes to move on to the next round of the competition. However, the magician didn’t stop performing. He went on to appear on Season 2 of Penn & Teller: Fool Us with Season 7 AGT contestant The Magic of Puck.
AGT Season 15 daredevil Jonathan Goodwin reacted to Alexander’s death on Twitter Monday, writing, “A brilliant and creative magician left us today. Scott Alexander was fab, and he gifted us with great performances and awesome material which will take his name forward. A real loss. Scott was one of the really good ones.”
