How to Watch

Watch AGT on NBC and Peacock

On July 19, the America's Got Talent Season 14 Winner shared an awesome clip as he explored Florida and made some new friends along the way.

The video started out showing Lee after he got off an airboat at Midway Airboat Lodge, before a montage played of him putting on and being guided through the water while his original tune "Hello Word" played in the background. We then see some gorgeous scenery and a few cows along the way, and at the end up the clip, Lee held up a baby alligator with glee in a way that would make Steve Irwin proud. 

This hasn't been the only play time with animals that Lee has been having lately. On July 17, he uploaded a video to his official Instagram page that showed him petting some adorable puppies, which his family adopted. In the clip, Lee looked overjoyed as the dogs climbed over him and wagged their tails. "Surprise! These are our new puppies. Puppies are great for emotional support. And a good laugh," the video said.

"Surprise!🐶❤️ Looks like we have some new family members😲 What about you!?👇 Happy Sunday Everyone!" Lee captioned the post.

Kodi Lee's friends from the America's Got Talent universe

The alligator and puppies aren't the only new friends that Lee has been making lately. In an interview with NBC Insider, the musical savant told us the acts from the AGT universe who he has grown the closest to.

"Deadly Games and Duo Transcend because they always work hard at improving," he told us. Lee was referencing the knife-throwing duo Deadly Games from Season 11, and the trapeze artists Duo Transcend from Season 13.

Kodi's mother, Tina Lee, also chimed in about how the acts influenced her son's craft. "Every time we pass them, they are always practicing, and I think there's just a lot of respect for that, and he does the same," Lee's mom, Tina, tells us. "I mean, he works his butt off everyday, you know, doing his tap dancing and trying to do his music. So I think he attaches to that," she told us. 

She continued: "I mean, every day they're practicing because there's always, there could be an accident. [Kodi] understands that through the years he's worked with them. I think he's grown to totally respect that and understand that's hard, hard work."
