Scott was one of the most memorable contestants on season 6 of AGT. In his audition, he made his wife Jenny (also his assistant) appear out of thin air and then levitate with water. Judges <strong>Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel were so impressed with Scott's audition and he moved onto the next round.

Scott was eventually eliminated in the quarterfinals after he performed an illusion where a gospel choir disappeared and then reappeared. The winner of that season was jazz singer Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. After AGT, Scott appeared on season 2 of Penn & Teller: Fool Us, the magic competition series created by Penn Jillette and Teller.related('articleicindeencoktekrarlanankeyword')?>
