On August 29, the America's Got Talent Season 14 winner shared a video of him honoring his fans by singing one of their top most requested songs. But the twist? The track he chose was totally random, as it was pulled out from a hat. When the song title was revealed on a piece of paper, it turned out to be a beloved jazz classic: "Fly Me to the Moon."

Astonishingly, Lee already knew the song from memory and jumped right into it without missing a beat. His piano playing had a flawless swing as he crooned.

"OMG!!! 😮 I put some of YOUR top song requests in a hat and picked one at random!! 🤣 What did we get!? …Fly Me To The Moon 🌙 What a classic! 😎 You guys are the best! Can’t wait to see what song I pick next! #heckyeah!" he captioned the post.

This isn't the only time Lee has sung a 1960s classic. Earlier this month, he also posted a video of him covering the tune "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King. During his cover, he riffed perfectly and reached some super impressive high notes towards the end.

The lyrics to "Fly Me to the Moon"

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a-Jupiter and Mars

In other words: hold my hand
In other words: baby, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words: please, be true
In other words: I love you

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words: please, be true
In other words, in other words: I love you
