22-year-old Kodi Lee blew away the crowd as well as the judges after performing a rendition of ‘A Song for you’ by Donny Hathway. Lee is not only autistic but also blind. The singer came on stage with his mother Tina Lee who helped him walk to the piano.

Tina Lee told the judges that “through Kodi’s singing he has been able to withstand living in this world.” She also mentioned that he loved music ever since he was young and the first time he sang “his eyes went huge and he started singing.”

After his performance ended, the judges and the entire audience gave him a standing ovation. Judge Simon Cowell said, “What happened was extraordinary. I’m going to remember this moment for the rest of my life.”

She praised his performance by saying, “I’m a new judge this season and also a new mom this year. It’s the toughest job I’ve ever had and the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. You just want to give your kids the moon and stars and rainbows, and tonight I’m going to give you something special.”
