As of 2022, Kodi Lee’s net worth is anywhere between $1 and $5 million.
Originally from South Korea, singer/songwriter/pianist Kodi Lee now makes his home in the United States. He has a net worth of between $1 million and $5 million, according to various sources.
She became the first blind candidate to win the title of America’s Got Talent during season 14 of the renowned reality competition show. As one of the show’s thousand candidates, Kodi Lee quickly became a household name once she emerged as the fourteenth and final winner.
Kodi Lee, a 22-year-old pianist, and vocalist won the 14th season of “America’s Got Talent” in 2019. As soon as Lee was three years old, doctors discovered that he was legally blind due to Optic Nerve Hypoplasia (via SMM Health). After a year, Lee was diagnosed with autism; nevertheless, at about the same time, he obtained his first piano and started to pursue his love of music, which he had previously denied.
America’s Got Talent was the culmination of Kodi Lee’s obsessive need for music, which in turn fueled his desire for more time to dedicate to music and finally prompted him to compete.
Lee auditioned for the competition on May 28, 2019, by performing Leon Russell’s “A Song For You.” Because of his performance, he was awarded the season’s first golden buzzer by Judge Gabrielle Union. The video of his America’s Got Talent audition became viral in only two weeks, receiving millions of views in the process.
One million dollars in prize money is given to all winners of the show’s talent competition, so it’s no surprise that the little performer was handed the coveted golden buzzer as well.
It’s not out of the question that Lee would have received his $1 million prize money right now. However, this isn’t the case for all of the series’ winners, and it hasn’t been for quite some time owing to the various disclaimers attached to the prize money.
How Much Money Did Kodi Lee Get for Winning “America’s Got Talent”?
When it was all said and done, the prize for winning America’s Got Talent Season 14 looked incredible, and each of the other contestants hoped that they would be the one to walk away with it as well. On the other hand, they may not be as good as they seem on paper, as is the case with most things that seem good on paper. If you’re curious about Kodi Lee’s earnings, the short answer is:
A disclaimer after each episode claims that the winners of the program will get a reward that “totals” $1 million. Depending on the choice picked, the reward will be paid out either as “a financial annuity over forty years” or as “the current cash value of such an annuity.”
Good Housekeeping estimates that if Lee chooses the first option, he will get $25,000 every year for the next forty years, courtesy of “America’s Got Talent” (and NBC). If he picked the “present cash value” option, the winner would walk away with roughly $300,000 before taxes (according to Forbes), while Lee would be left with around $150,000 to $200,000 before taxes. According to Lee’s profile on Popular, he has a net worth of between $1 million and $5 million at this time.
Not only that but America’s Got Talent’s finalists, including Kodi, will also be performing. While performing at Paris Las Vegas Theatre after “America’s Got Talent Live!”, Lee headlined the show. As a prize, Talent Recap provided him with three nights at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. At the Autism Awareness Gala in Washington, D.C. in November of 2018, Lee sang alongside “Glee” star Lea Michele in a duet; they will also participate together in the 2020 finale of “America’s Got Talent: Champions.”
