His performance kicked off the first quarterfinal round, where just 7 of the 12 acts will go through to September’s semifinals.

Kodi Lee is a blind and autistic singer who has been awing audiences with his powerful vocal range and amazing piano skills. He performed a powerful rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” which showcased his talent completely.

Simon Cowell said that Paul Simon had OK’d Lee to perform the song “because he saw your audition,” he continued, “I want to thank Paul Simon, who never really gives permission for anyone to sing (‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’) because it’s very precious to him, and he gave (Lee) clearance within 30 minutes,” Cowell said.

Verse of the Day

[Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time] Now Jesus was going up to Jerusalem. On the way, he took the Twelve aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!” — Matthew 20: 17-19 (NIV)
