Blind singer with autism wins America’s Got Talent

Friday, 20 Sep, 2019

Lee, 23, is blind, autistic and suffers from Addison's Disease.

In the quarter-finals, Lee once again blew audiences away as he sang Paul Simon's 1970 classic, Bridge Over Troubled Water, after Cowell gave him special permission to perform the song.

Do not read on unless you've watched Wednesday's finale of America's Got Talent. The choir auditioned for the 14th season of America's Got Talent, where Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, Howie Mandel, and host Terry Crews followed in their talent search, to showcase unique performers.

The group amazed the judges with their rendition of Steve Winwood's Higher Love, (later covered by Whitney Houston), in the semi-finals and promised something bigger and better for last night's show.

After weeks of competition, Lee has been crowned the champion of season 14. "It actually has saved his life playing music". Ryan Niemiller and... WWE wrestler Chris Jericho? Through his comedy, he shares a unique view of the world through his eyes. Acrobatic dance group V. Unbeatable and vocal group Voices of Service placed fourth and fifth, respectively.

Almost all the judges struggled to maintain their composure while giving their feedback, with Simon Cowell admitting he was especially struck by the performance. "You are genuinely one of the most extraordinary people and talents we've had the great fortune to have on any show we've ever made. That would have been a Golden Buzzer". Either way, there's a lot of talent here in these 10 finalists.

Lang Lang dazzled on the piano before being joined by Emanne Beasha. Kodi and his mother spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HL about what he'd do with the $1 million prize, their unimaginable "AGT" journey, and extra.
