    Let's bless Simon & Garfunkel for this beautiful song that made him and so many other people feel something❤️

    He sings this song better than the original singer IMO. Never heard this song before Kodi sung it, so awesome thanks America for getting this one right!

      Troy Evans. Nothing comes close to the original Simon & Garfunkle version. It's like saying a copy of a Manet or Monet painting is better than the original. With art, the original is always the best.

    When I watch Kodi sing I realize he has everything to complain about but he makes the very best of his amazing life and is the most positive person ever given his circumstances and struggles. I admire him and makes me realize that the small things in life aren't worth complaining about. We should all live life in the moment.

    As SOON as i see Kodi Lee, i smile, and then i start to get choked up. He is so talented, while facing such tough disabilities, but the bond he has with his mother, and the support of love of everyone who meets him, interacts with him, just has the HONOR of hearing him perform,...its all just so special and we witnessed history.
    And this song in particular is so beautiful, and he did such a great job.... so happy he won (was there ever a doubt???) And can't wait to get my tickets to see him in Vegas... though i don't think my heart and my happy zone can handle a multi hour performance by this wonderful kid!

  • sara myers

    I deeply needed this today. The first time I lost a friend to suicide was 49 years ago....this song comforted and tortured me. “Could I have done more? Why didn’t I see it coming? Why didn’t he ask me for help? 4 months ago a friend succumbed to Depression and PTSD. Last night his son followed him. When I heard the news, my heart stopped. I couldn’t even cry. Then I remembered Kodi’s perfect rendition of this song. Hearing him, the tears flooded forth, helping me release some of my sorrow. I can breathe again. But the utter desperation to help those who suffer find a way to reach out to us still remains. Hug and love and offer kind, encouraging words to everyone. You just might be the tiny ember that begins to light their way over troubled waters, through the darkness.

    Is AGT rigged? Kodi Lee already won. 2nd should have been Sophoe Pecora. Then this unveatable group advances out of the other 2 that night of disqualification? Its got to be rigged.

    If Kodi Lee had not been blind, there was little chance that he would have defeated V.Unbeatable.🤐🤐🤐🤐

    His last performance was sub par. This show is called America's Got Talent. Plain and simple. People need to look past his ADHD and blindness. Show is not about empathy, its about talent. If he wins its all about his disabilities and zero to do with talent. Please, don't get me wrong. What he's accomplished is amazing. No doubt there whatsover. But folks, this show is about talent, the back stories on the contestants should play no role in determining the outcome. The judges are afraid to say anything negative for fear of reprisals and being labeled as having no empathy. Lets put it this way. If He was without any disability and went up against Benicio Bryant. He'd lose hands down. Not even close. He wouldnt even had made it to semi finals. I tell it like it should be and nothing glossed over.
