Simon Cowell gave America's Got Talent winner Kodi Lee the best news of his life last night as the 22-year-old sailed on to the semi-finals with her appearance in Simon and Garfunkle's Bridge Over Troubled Water.

The Belt for a Ballad is a well-known favorite among the music moguls who shows up on his talent shows almost as much as his five-year-old son, Eric.

But despite being covered by them like Leona Lewis, Kodi was the contestant who got the big thumbs up from the actual Paul Simon.

& # 39; I want to thank Paul Simon, who never really allows anyone to sing this song, & # 39; began Simon after being visibly moved by the rendering. 'It is very precious to him and he gave [Kodi] clearance within 30 minutes because he saw your audition. & # 39;

This was not surprising when Gabrielle Union's Golden Buzzer act went viral with his rendition of Donny Hathaway & # 39; s A Song For You earlier this summer, already garnering a ridiculous 42 million views on YouTube. At this point, the $ 1 million prize money is Kodi to take.

His mother later admitted having seen & # 39; magic & # 39 ;, and so Kodi's family & # 39; never expect this to happen & # 39; when she saw her son rise to glory. 'This experience has been one of the most memorable and amazing events of our lives.

"Watching the world embrace Kodi, as they have been, has been truly incredible," she enthused. 'Seeing all the attention and love he gets from everyone makes him so happy. The first day, I don’t think we stopped staring at his phone and “liked” everyone’s comments. & # 39;

Painter Alex Dowis, singer Luke Islam, troupe Voice of Service, dared Messoudi Brothers, teen vocalist Ashley Burns and impressionist Greg Morton also advanced to the semi-finals.

America & # 39; s Got Talent continues next Tuesday on NBC and is streaming on Netflix.
