Well, THAT was a rousing opening! I’m fully awake now. Oh dang. This recap from last night might put me back to sleep.  Next, and FINALLY, the judges,Howie MandelGabrielle UnionJulianne Hough and Simon Cowell are introduced. Simon says he has no idea who will win tonight. They guy was spacing out until Terry called him twice. He probably needs a smoke break.

ONE LAST DUNKIN’ LOUNGE. The show is going to be filled with a ton of filler, isn’t it…

Lang Lang tas the stage to play some hokey piano. Next, kid opera singer Emmane Beasha joins him on stage for a song, that will appear on his new album

Next, it’s Ryan Niemiller. He shares that he wanted to be a pro-wrestler once upon a time. He could be a bad-**s! So his handle “Cripple Threat” is his wrestling name! Chris Jericho is his favorite wrestler. He drops by to teach Ryan a few moves.  Oh dear. Ryan is too nice for trash talk. Ha. Chris teaches him to yell at Simon, who does not even know what Ramen noodles are. Well, that was fun. “You never turn your back on the cripple threat!”
Howie introduces a video clip that’s all about host Terry Crews. What a wacky guy!

Next Benicio Bryan takes the stage with his “hero” Latin urban singer and songwriter Ozuna. Benicio got a haircut! It’s a little jarring! So is this musical style for Benicio. But it actually suits him! Benicio didn’t sing any upbeat songs for the competition. This is a welcome change up. 

The next video package stars Simon and Cher. What a pair. This is very odd. The two discull “random thoughts”…on things. Cell phones, video games and more. Simon likes pong. 

Now, it’s Julianne Hough performing her new single. V. Unbeatable join her on stage.  She sings. They toss…Julianne! Right through the air. Don’t like the song? There’s a distraction! Heh.  Hm. This is a pop song. Wasn’t she a country singer last time? 

Lilly Singh, the Youtube star who hosts the new late late late night show on NBC. She picks the five worst acts: The monkey in a tutu, Death, Yurian Retriever (OF COURSE), Brandon Coprich (the naked flute player) Sethward is her favorit

Next it’s an “exclusive” AGT mashup. Light Balance Kids, Tyler Butler-Figueroa and last year’s finalist Brian Joseph King join forces. A trio of names. Heh. Tyler and Brian perform a “Favorite Things” and then Light Balance Kids take the stage to dance to “Treasure” by Bruno Mars. Just as I am thinking “where’s the mashup?” SURPRISE SURPRISE SURPRISE.  The “kids” pull off their masks and IT’S PAULA ABDUL! Dancing with the kids! PAULER PAULER PAULER! 

RESULTS: Here we go! The Top 10 are center stage. In no particular order, who made it into the Top 5. Benicio Bryant and Voices of Service are center stage.  The first act taking a spot in the Top 5 is…Voices of Service!Benicio isn’t in the Top 5. My predictions are already done. Emmane Beasha and Ryan Niemiller step forward. The act taking the second spot in the Top 5 is…Ryan NiemillerV. Unbeatable are next, with Ndlovu Youth Choir.

Gabrielle wants to know when he is available. “You are my next star!” OK. This is shocking. Detroit Youth Choir in the Top 2? REALLY REALLY REALLY?

Kodi Lee – Blind/autistic singer/pianist – Gabrielle Union’s Golden Buzzer – Kodi insists auditioning for AGT was his idea. He hears music in his head. He speaks to the people he loves through his music because it’s difficult to express himself otherwise. “My family is always there for me,” he says.

“My dreams are coming true.” It takes him a few seconds to begin his cover of  ” “. The song is in his vocal range. Sometimes Kodi strains on the high notes.It’s a pretty and simple performance. When he does deliver a high note, it’s clean. Hm. That may have won him the show. The audience is chanting for him! She says, “Kodi has changed the world,” she says. Howie thinks Kodi will “walk out of here with a million.” Julianne thanks him for creating beautiful moments. “That was as good as I’ve ever heard,” says Simon. 

Terry announces the 4th, fifth and sixth place finishers: Light Balance KidsNdlovu Youth Choir and Robert Finley.  Simon is surprised by the acts who wound up in danger. He does not specify who, however. 

Oooh, The vote is close between the Light Balance Kids and Robert Finley

Kodi Lee  – Blind/autistic singer/pianist – Gabrielle’s Golden Buzzer – Kodi’s family talk about growing up with an autistic brother. He didn’t like being touched, or express love. But the piano changed everything. He plays in the famed Capitol studios with his family all around. Tonight he performs Calum Scott’s “You are the Reason.” He delivers a good performance this week. His intonation is better than last time. Probably his best performance so far. Gabrielle says, ‘You just keep changing the world…you make the world a thousand percent better.” Simon compliments his special talent. “My breath was taken away.” Sean had tears in his eyes. He calls Kodi a gift. Howie calls him “magic.”

In his video package, his mom talks about learning he was blind at 3 months. Not soon after, he was diagnosed as autistic. Music was the thing that made him really happy. Kodi is Gabrielle’s Golden Buzzer. His audition has had almost half a million views online. His mom sits him at the piano and makes sure he’s ok before Kodi performs “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” Oh boy.

This performance really pulls at the heartstrings. He doesn’t have a great voice–he’s a better piano player. But his delivery is moving nonetheless. No chance Kodi won’t advance to the next round. He could win the whole thing. Gabrielle says, “You changed the world…we have to stop putting limits on our children.” Simon says, “You continually amaze me. We are nothing without people like you.” Paul Simon gave special permission for Kodi to sing the song. However, it’s not true that the song is hardly sung on singing shows.

Who is Kodi?

Kodi Lee is the first born child to Tina and Eric Lee. He is a 22-year old blind and autistic musical prodigious savant. He is one of only approximately 25 in the world today who possess his extraordinary abilities. Kodi's amazing gift lies within his musical expression, perfect pitch, and passion for all forms of music. Kodi has an audio photographic memory, in which he can recall music he hears after just one listen. An unbelievable gift in itself, but his musical expression and prowess top even that.

He has been performing his singing and piano expertise all across the globe for many years. He currently performs locally at a variety of venues including local restaurants, wineries, and music events all around town. Recently he was invited to perform at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. His musical repertoire ranges from rock to jazz, to R & B, and pop. Plus his mastery of the classics such as Bach, Chopin, Mozart and the list goes on. He literally has a library of songs in his mind that would rival any jukebox. But he doesn’t stop there. He recently has picked up tap dancing and he continues to amaze with his musical expression through dance and vocalization.

Kodi’s story, his inspirational determination, and indomitable spirit to overcome all obstacles have been featured in Orange County Register, LA Times, numerous broadcast television features and documentaries. He also shares his gift to help bring awareness to autism and many other charitable organizations. 

Born with optic nerve hypoplasia, surviving a life-saving surgery at 5 days old, and being diagnosed with autism at an early age has never stopped Kodi from reaching for his dreams. Kodi continues to pursue his musical career and his dream is to be a “rock star” performing for thousands of fans. Any opportunity Kodi has to perform is a good day for him, and the bigger more energetic the audience, the more he loves to shine.

He shares on his facebook page:

" I  hope you guys can come hang out with the Unstoppables tomorrow…they are all amazing and inspirational! I really hope you can come because Live Shows for America’s Got Talent will be starting in August so I won’t have time to perform as much as usual around town."

This will bring you to TEARS! Gabrielle Union uses her FIRST golden buzzer and creates one of the most emotional moments in AGT history.

Viewer react to Kodi Lee AGT Live Show

Fiona S Marilyn You really inspired everybody , inspite of your specialness, you continue to inspired us to keep on moving !! Your an inspiration to the world … for me your a. Winner !

Andi Reese Luca I predicted from his 1st audition that he would be the winner, and I still believe that 100%. He is an amazing talent and inspiration,I can't wait to see him win!!

Emily Dutton Stayner If you guys honestly think he isn't talented and that he made it through because of his disabilities, close your eyes and listen solely to his voice. He is an incredible singer. So rather than screaming "PITY VOTE" you need to think about what you're saying a little more

Matthew Williams The fact that Paul Simon allowed him to sing a song that he wouldn’t want most singers to sing and made that decision within 30 minutes just shows how much this amazing musician deserves to win the show! I was chanting right along with the audience when he finished singing! Kodi for the win!

Jeff Schwartz When Simon said Paul Simon gave his permission because he saw Kodis audition, i was floored. Thank you Paul, and thank you Kodi for being an inspiration and an amazing talent. Paul Simon and Kodi now need to perform this together on the finale. love Kodi Lee AGT Live Show performance

Sarah Espada I roll my eyes everytime a singer comes out however everytime Kodi comes out I cannot wait to hear him sing. His mom is amazing for allowing America and the world his hear voice and hear his talent. And thanks to Paul Simmon for allowing Kodi to use his song tonight! He did an amazing job and should be the winner to this season. Keep up the awesome job Kodi, keep showing and teaching the world that there is no limitation to be an inspiration!

Briana Russell Just give him the Million right now, this is your winner! He had me in tears the first time and I bawled again this time. And he was so cute at the end saying he was thankful for the support and that he loved us all. And I love how his mother respects him enough to let him answer on his own. I just love him!
