Alexander, along with his wife, became famous on season 6 of America’s Got Talent where he impressed the judges with his illusions and tricks. It all started with his audition which consisted of making a woman appear out of nowhere, be supported by water, then levitate. Judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel at the time, all voted in favor of sending him forward to the Vegas round. However, he fell short of reaching the finals as he was eliminated in the Quarterfinals.
