“One of the most beautiful things I have ever heard,” remarked judge Simon Cowell of Kodi’s spine tingling cover of Freda Riding’s Lost Without You.

“I think the whole world would be lost if we hadn’t found Kodi Lee,” enthused Gabrielle Union.

Fans online were quick to agree, writing, “There’s no way Kodi Lee loses,’ on Twitter, and another writing, “get this kid on Broadway NOW!”

Fellow golden-buzzer winner, child violinist Tyler Butler Figueroa performed Destiny’s Child’s Survivor, which Simon Cowell revealed had been personally cleared for him to play by Beyonce herself.

The 11-year-old from North Carolina is a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was four-and-a-half-years-old.

Other hopefuls for the $1 million prize as the 16 week competition reaches its climax are acrobatic dance group V. Unbeatable who opened the sensational live show on NBC.
