Which contestant took home the $1 million prize and a gig as a headliner in Las Vegas?
And, the act who took the first spot in the top 5 tonight was … Voices of Service. This took Benicio Bryant out of the running. Next to find out the results were Emanne Beasha and Ryan Niemiller. And, the contestant who took the second spot in the top 5 was comedian Niemiller. V.Unbeatable and Ndlovu Youth Choir were the next acts to find out their results. Unfortunately for Ndlovu, they did not make it. Kodi Lee and Light Balance Kids then received the news about their positions in the competition. But, it was Kodi Lee who made it into the top 5 and he was very excited to hear the news, jumping up and down.
With just one spot left, Tyler Butler-Figueroa and Detroit Youth Choir stepped forward to hear the results of the votes. Detroit Youth Choir were the winners over Butler-Figueroa.
The results: Detroit Youth Choir finished second; comedian Ryan Niemiller finished third; acrobatic dance group V. Unbeatable finished fourth; and the Voices of Service quartet finished fifth.
The Winner: Kodi Lee was crowned the Season 14 winner during Wednesday’s live, two-hour season finale following what Simon Cowell dubbed “the best final I have ever sat in on in my life” on Tuesday.
Kodi Lee is a singer and pianist, who is a blind and autistic musical prodigious savant and is often seen with his mom Tina at his side. In a recent interview with Parade, Tina said, “I am plainly proud of him. He has worked so hard and I have seen him turn it, he like flips the hat over. He just sucked in that audience. When I watch him do that, it’s magical. He just blows you away.”
This entire journey has helped me with communication, and no matter what happens I’m so thankful for the love and opportunity that @agt and all of you have given me! Don’t miss the #AGTFinale tonight! #heckyeah pic.twitter.com/BRRRSZzfiW
