One of Dr. Rogers' videos, a cover of a Boys II Men song, was so impressive that the band invited him to join them on stage for a performance.

Producers have reportedly not yet decided whether or not to air his upcoming episode. His family members told TMZ they greatly hope it airs.

Major reality show contestants who died
Dr. Brandon Rogers, a standout contestant on "America's Got Talent," passed away just weeks before his episode was slated to air. The 29-year-old doctor wowed producers without even auditioning: He occasionally posted singing videos on Instagram, and his incredible voice caught their attention. He tragically died in a car accident.
Michael Johns was a Top 12 "American Idol" finalist in 2008. He passed away in 2014 at age 35 due to a blood clot in his ankle. The Australian-born singer was well-liked by the judges and received their posthumous recognition: "A truly great guy. Rest in peace Michael," Simon Cowell tweeted, while Randy Jackson wrote, “So Sad. Too soon. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.”
Marque 'Tate' Lynche was a semi-finalist in season 3 of "American Idol." He began his career at an early age, performing along side Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake on the "All New Micky Mouse Club" in the early '90s. He was found dead in his apartment at age 34 in 2015 under what police deemed "suspicious circumstances." 
Rickey Smith, a contestant on "American Idol" during its second season, was tragically killed in a car crash at age 36 in May 2016. After spending a few years pursuing music in Los Angeles, he had returned to his home state of Oklahoma, where he unfortunately passed away. 
2010 "Bachelorette" contestant Julien Hug killed himself in November of the same year. He wrote an emotional suicide note, which was read aloud at his funeral: "I've suffered from severe depression for years. I feel awful and don't know how to cope. If life's not enjoyable, why stick around?" 
Jano Fuentes was a popular contestant on the Mexican version of "The Voice" in 2011. Five years later, in 2016, he was in Chicago when a gunman shot him three times in the head. He was the president of a local Chicago music academy and was killed just outside the school. He was 45.
Christina Grimmie was a YouTube sensation long before she hit it big on "The Voice" in 2014. Two years later, at age 22, she was shot and killed by an obsessive fan after a concert in Orlando, FL. The shocking murder stunned the globe, and "The Voice" formally mourned her loss in April 2017 with a special performance from Adam Levine.

A contestant on season 8 of "The Voice," Anthony Riley was an instant frontrunner after his voice elicited the fastest four-chair turnaround in the history of the show. He dropped out of the show to enter rehab and later died of an apparent suicide at age 28 in 2015.

Brooklyn native Alexis Cohen was featured on "American Idol" in 2008 after infamously cursing out the judges. She died in 2009 following a hit-and-run car crash in New Jersey. She was 25. 
"Survivor" contestant Dan Kay died unexpectedly on New Year's Eve 2016 at age 40. His family and  the local police department have refused to provide any details of his cause of death. His obituary mentioned that his love for adventure led him to compete on "Survivor."
