Yes, he became the victor of the season 14 AGT on Wednesday.
Earlier in the night, five acts were eliminated: singer Benicio Bryant; opera singer Emanne Beasha; Ndlovu Youth Choir; light up dance group Light Balance Kids and violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa. Acrobatic dance group V. Unbeatable and vocal group Voices of Service placed fourth and fifth, respectively. The 22-year-old singer, who is both blind and autistic, blew the audience away during his powerful first audition and earned the first Golden Buzzer of the season.
AGT Judges Simon Cowell, Julianne Hough, Howie Mandel and Gabrielle Union have been in awe of Lee since his audition weeks ago, with the foursome giving him a standing audition for his wonderful rendition of Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You".
In the semi-final Lee performed a cover of Simon & Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Water after Paul Simon approved his use of the song after seeing his first audition. For his final bow on the show, he sang Freya Ridings' "Lost Without You" in the finals. The final two-hour result show of the AGT season 14, was aired on ABC on Wednesday night at 8 pm.

Post the finale, judge Gabrielle Union posted a heartfelt message for Kodi Lee on Instagram saying, "You did it @Kodileerocks!" "And if I had to predict, you're worth much more than a million, but I think you're gonna walk out of here with the million". This is just the beginning. He said at the start of the show that all the contestants are great & anyone among the finalists could win.
