It was a attractive performance on Wednesday's star-studded two-hour finale, which saw Lee showcasing his masterful skills as a vocalist and a pianist while he and Lewis basked in the adoration of the audience.

"America's Got Talent" will return for another "Champions" edition this January; the show's fifteenth season will start next May. "God bless you", Simon said after Kodi's second performance.

The two-hour star-studded finale on NBC ended with blind and autistic singer Kodi, 22, being named the victor of the $1 million prize after the 10 finalists performed Monday.

America's Got Talent brought some incredible special guests and awesome surprises for their season 14 finale on Wednesday, including an incredible performance from judge Julianne Hough! Gabrielle Union, who has been invested in Lee since that first audition, took to Twitter to encourage her followers to vote for him.

Along with the honour of being named victor of AGT, Lee has taken home $1 million and will be headlining shows in November at Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

On the night of the finale, he performed with singer Leona Lewis. Ryan Niemiller and Light Balance Kids received the Dunkin' Save, while Ndlovu Youth Choir and Emanne Beasha were the judge's choices.

Kodi Lee beat out nine other finalists and walked away with $1 million.

For the finals, Lee sang Freya Ridings' "Lost Without You" and received a standing ovation from the audience.

Even the runners up, the Detroit Youth Choir, were emotional about Lee's win. Tina admitted that she's hoping for the very best when the outcomes are available in.

"I realised he's an entertainer".

"Through music and performing, he was able to withstand living in this world", she said.
