Kodi Lee is the 24-year-old singer/pianist from California who performed Leon Russell’s “A Song For You” for his audition on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent in May 2019. All four AGT judges — Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union and Howie Mandell — gave Kodi (who is legally blind and autistic) a standing ovation and Union pressed the Golden Buzzer. (Kodi was later named the winner of the competition.)
Kodi’s audition will be featured on the AGT 15th Anniversary Special on August 4.
Since winning AGT, Kodi has performed several times on stage and on TV but one of the most unique was backstage and with Julianne Hough‘s brother and fellow former Dancing with the Stars pro dancer Derek Hough (now a judge of Jennifer Lopez‘s World of Dance).
While Kodi sings the famous Elvis Presley song “Blue Suede Shoes” — and dances! — Derek and his girlfriend and pro dancer Hayley Erbert dance too.
P.S. That’s former DWTS celeb contestant and pro violinist Lindsay Stirling adding her own flavor to the mix! America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on NBC.
