There Are No Words to Express the Degree of Expression This Artist Puts into His Performance
Kodi’s rendition of “Lost Without You” by Freya Ridings carries grace, the performance excellence of a master, and shows utter perfection as a singer, pianist, and artist unlike any other.
There is no having to think when it comes to knowing just how good this artist actually is. He carries the emotion of the ages behind his words, channeling power and control in a way that none before have before. True savant and a man who loves one speechless, not even Simon Cowell had ever heard an act so perfect.

The judges were moved and inspired by Kodi’s emotional showcase of talent. Judge Gabrielle Union was blown away, saying Kodi has changed the world. He changes every room he enters. And when he said I think I’d be ‘lost without you,’ I think the whole world would be lost if we had not found Kodi Lee. Thank you for blessing us all, Kodi. Thank you so much.”
Riled up and filled with fervor, Howie added “Two words come to mind: heck yeah! I think Season 14 is the season of Kodi Lee and if I had to predict, you’re worth much more than a million, but I think you’re gonna walk out of here with a million.”

Simon Cowell felt this Kodi’s act was as good as any he had ever witnessed, saying “One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever, ever heard, I’m gonna be really honest with you. Genuinely, Kodi, your film and that song and that lyric and you. Everything about it was like I very first said about you, it was like being in a movie. I’m gonna say this about you and everybody else, it’s so easy to assume that it’s a shoo-in. Everybody needs to vote. But after that, that was as good as I’ve ever heard.”
