Hollywood, United States – And just like that America’s Got Talent 2019 has come to an end. It has been one of our favourite seasons to date! Not only because our proudly South African Ndlovu Youth Choir were amongst the top performers, but because we were moved to tears by performers like Kodi Lee, or laughed along with performers like the guy who did a striptease and accidentally hit the golden buzzer.
This season has been a rollercoaster, not only fo viewer but the judges and Terry too. It is currently being aired (although not live) on DSTV where you can watch the full episodes and see all the talented people.
As South Africans, naturally, we have been cheering on the Ndlovu Youth Choir throughout their journey. Yesterday we shared their final performance, where they were honoured to close out this season of America’s Got Talent, and in the early hours of this morning, the winner of this year’s competition was announced.
The Ndlovu Youth Choir sadly did not make the Top 5, which put them in the eighth position but they did make it to what is being called the world’s biggest stage and performed 6 times for the world to see.
Kodi Lee was crowned the Season 14 winner during Wednesday’s live, two-hour season finale following what Simon Cowell dubbed “the best final I have ever sat in on in my life” on Tuesday.
“Lee, who is blind and has autism, has been the front-runner of the NBC talent show since earning a Golden Buzzer during the auditions round from Gabrielle Union. Lee not only pulled at the judges’ heartstrings but America’s, winning the most viewer votes.”
While our hearts are heavy at the Ndlovu Choir’s loss, this most definitely isn’t the end of their journey. The choir will go on to do many great things, including the continued upliftment of impoverished teens from Limpopo.
Do not cry for the choir because this is still a victory. A South African choir landed in the hearts of millions of people, and it is there to stay!
Their message, just because you are born into poverty; it doesn’t mean you are poverty has so much truth. Their success throughout the show has become a beacon for every child across the globe, showing that no matter what, you can be anything you dream of being!
Let’s take one last look at all the performances by the Ndlovu Youth Choir. Their audition video has a mindblowing 8-million views.
