Unlike most contestants on AGT, Kodie is largely unknown. He doesn’t have a massive following on social media, nor has he already released a debut album or EP. However, Kodi’s been pounding the pavement for years, performing at any gig that will have him. While he was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall, his most recent shows were at nearby elementary schools, wineries and bars in Temecula.

While everyone is obviously excited to cheer on their hometown hero, it’s unclear if Kodi himself will be performing at these shows.

The 22-year-old is both blind and autistic, but he hasn’t let these medical setbacks keep him from becoming a professional musician. The Southern California native considers any day that he gets to perform “a good day,” so now that he’s competing on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, only more good days lie ahead.
Kodi Lee is ready for his big break, to perform in front of millions on AGT. Even before the show premiered, executive producer and judge Simon Cowell called him “incredible,” a rare compliment from the famously acerbic critic.
“I hope the public will love him,” Cowell told USA Today, “and I think they will.” Cowell typically doesn’t talk about any of the contestants before the show premieres, so this is a big nod of confidence.
This season’s AGT judges include Julianna Hough, Howie Mandel, Simon Cowell, and Gabrielle Union. Sophie’s energy is contagious and it’s easy to see understand why this teen sensation will woo over the judges. Even if he doesn’t win the grand prize this season, big things are in Lee’s near future.
