Kodi Lee once again brought the judges to tears with another breathtaking America’s Got Talent performance. During Tuesday night’s semifinals, the 22-year-old singer and pianist played Calum Scott’s “You Are the Reason” for a spellbound audience. His powerful vocals shone through, resulting in a standing ovation from Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Julianne Hough, and Gabrielle Union.
“We are all thankful to be in your orbit,” Union said. She saw the potential in Lee during his now-viral audition and slammed the golden buzzer. Guess what song played in the background as the emotional moment went down? You guessed it, the very same Calum Scott song. Lee brought AGT back to the beginning with this performance, but something tells us his story on stage is far from over. Fingers crossed he makes it through to the next round!
