Brandon Rogers was a singer act from Season 12 of America's Got Talent.


Brandon Rogers was born on October 30th, 1987. He decided to pursue medicine when he was six years old. After coming home from school one day, he found his mother laying in a pool of blood. She was rushed to a hospital, where doctors managed to save her life. Inspired, Brandon decided to pursue a field where he could actually make a difference.

Brandon completed an internship at Southampton Hospital in 2016 and was in his family medicine residency at Riverside Brentwood Medical Center in Virginia. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. To deal with the stresses of being a doctor, he would sing and record videos.

Brandon decided to pursue a stint as a contestant on America’s Got Talent after the show’s producers discovered a video of him covering "On Bended Knee" by Boyz II Men. Dr. Rogers' buzz led to a performance with Boyz II Men in 2017 from January 20th to January 22nd. [1]


Brandon Rogers' audition in Episode 1206 consisted of singing Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon In The Sky". Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes", sending Brandon to the Judge Cuts.

Judge CutsEdit

The Season 12 Judge Cuts was filmed before Brandon passed away, so he still had a chance to compete.


Brandon Rogers passed away on June 11, 2017, in a car accident. On June 10th, Brandon was on a trip with two friends, riding in the front passenger seat. When the friend who was driving fell asleep, he drifted onto the right shoulder, veered off the road, and struck a tree. Although the driver and the friend who had been riding in the backseat survived, Brandon died from his injuries the next day in a hospital. He was 29 years old. [2]


  • Brandon is the first contestant whose audition was televised after their death.
