Season 14 of America's Got Talent has hosted so many incredible contestants this summer. With that being said, only a small handful have risen to the very top. Even some of the judges' golden buzzer selections — Joseph Allen (Howie Mandel's pick), Luke Islam (Julianne Hough's pick), and Sophie Pecora (Brad Paisley's pick) — were eliminated during the quarterfinals and semifinals. Needless to say, it's really competitive this year.
But for those acts who did make it past the quarterfinals and semifinals, they now will compete on the two-night season 14 finale on September 17 and 18.
The 29-person dance crew danced and flipped their way into the quarterfinals with a heart-pounding routine that left guest judge Dwayne Wade amazed. "My heart is beating at a rapid pace that I haven't felt before," he told the group. Then, in dramatic fashion, Dwayne pressed the golden buzzer.
The South African group had all the judges smiling from ear to ear in round one. As if that wasn't enough, the singers delivered an even more goosebump-inducing performance in round two. "What you represent is unity and collectiveness. Beautiful," Julianne told the choir. Simon also added that he didn't think the group could've done anything more to convince the judges that they deserved a quarterfinals spot.
In the premiere episode of season 14, AGT fans were introduced to singer Kodi Lee. Kodi, who is blind and has autism, wowed all the judges and viewers at home with his spot-on rendition of Donny Hathaway's "A Song for You." His performance moved Gabrielle so much, that she decided to give him the ultimate reward — her golden buzzer.
A choir has never won AGT before — but the Detroit Youth Choir may just be the first to break that streak. The group, which is composed of inner-city children, gave the performance of a lifetime with their fun choreography and lively take on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's "Can't Hold Us." While all the judges gave the troupe raving reviews, the performance was especially moving for Terry. "Every man and woman on this stage represents me and where I came from. I remember sitting at my window in Flint, Michigan, dreaming about wanting to make it and wanting to be here — and they are here," Terry said as he held back tears. Moments later, he gave his golden buzzer to the choir.
Considering the aforementioned, we think that the 2019 America's Got Talent Winner will be the favorite - Kodi Lee +200. For the simple reason, that America has never witnessed a talent like such. And his talent defines the concept of making the impossible possible. So our pick would be for AGT Season 14 is Kodi Lee to win it all.
Pick: Kodi Lee +200
