In addition to appearing on America’s Got Talent, head judge Simon Cowell also currently appears on Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.
Kodi Lee is one of the season 14 front-runners. He is a blind, autistic musician, who has captured the judges, audiences, and at-home viewers. In an interview with Parade, Lee’s mom Tina Lee said, “My reaction is I am plainly proud of him. He has worked so hard and I have seen him turn it, he like flips the hat over. He just sucked in that audience. When I watch him do that, it’s magical. He just blows you away.”
She continued, saying, “I’ve watched him change people’s lives. One of our biggest messages is it doesn’t matter what disability, no matter what – even if you don’t have a disability – you can do it. As long as you keep trying and put all your hard work into it, you can do it. It is possible.”
