Spoilers ahead for the Season 14 finale of America's Got Talent on NBC.

The fourteenth season of America's Got Talent has come to an end, and viewers got to experience a new panel of judges and a new host in action. They had the task of judging some of the greatest and most emotional AGT acts in recent memory before viewers got to weigh in. Now, however, viewers have weighed in and selected the next America's Got Talent champion and winner of $1 million, not to mention a show in Vegas! The newest AGT champ is none other than Kodi Lee.

Let's be honest, it seemed all but certain this is how Season 14 would shake out from the first note that Kodi Lee sang on America's Got Talent. Every performance was better than the last, which was damn near necessary this year as judges proclaimed this to be the strongest talent pool the show had in quite some time. Lee was never rattled by the pressure, and now has $1,000,000 and a Las Vegas show because of it.

The moment is obviously a dream come true for Kodi Lee, who has said he wants nothing more than to perform for people. He also said he wants a rainbow piano if he wins, so expect that to be on stage when he begins his Las Vegas residency. Lee will almost certainly have no shortage of attendees, as the crowd frequently chanted his name throughout the evening and erupted when he was announced as the Season 14 winner.

Runner up this season went to Detroit Youth Choir who all congratulated Kodi Lee as the confetti rained around them. The news was surely disappointing, although Detroit Youth Choir certainly has a future in show business after coming in second place and beating out folks like the high flying dance group V. Unbeatable. Even though they stood alongside the front-runner for the entire season in the end, it wouldn't be surprising if some fans thought for just a second the young choir team had done what seemed impossible.

And thus concludes another season of America's Got Talent. The season wasn't without its controversies and surprise eliminations, but for the most part the new judges and host seemed to help shape what became one of the better seasons in the NBC competition's long history. Can anyone really dispute that after that surprise mini American Idol judges reunion in the finale?

America's Got Talent may be done for the season on NBC, but there are plenty of shows returning to the Peacock Network in the not-too-distant future, and you can find them on our fall TV premiere schedule. Be sure to stay tuned to CinemaBlend for the latest and greatest in TV and movies news.
