America's Got Talent


  • Who won AGT? (Sorry i didn't wached more i was done after jeffrey got cut from the competition😐😐)

  • Is this jake zyrus(charice pempengco)

  • I think Heidi really enjoyed Jeffrey's singing.

  • This kid has a very classical voice! Superb!

  • he didn't make it, while they let the "horror girl with the doll", who did absolutely nothing!! go to the next round? This show is called "America's got TALENT", not "America goes weirdo". This happens every year, very talented people get kicked off the show, while one or two mediocre acts remain in the show to get people talking about it. This boy had the voice to win this thing, do they really think the doll girl can win this?

  • He is brilliant that Vibrato is magic

  • Wooooooow

  • I was expecting him to get the golden buzzer and everything but I guess not. (I was listening to his covers since 2016) the judges didn’t choose right honestly, I’m disappointed

  • Bet this kid has an iq of 300

  • My only opinion: his voice sounds too 2 dimensional. If he had better resonance, he would’ve destroyed the other competitors

  • Fc from Thailand 🇹🇭

  • He should’ve done I will always love you

  • Amazing!!

  • Simon does not look pleased

  • que voz e essa cara magnifico nunca comentei mais esse foi de mais

  • The best!

  • Did👏he👏at👏least👏get👏the👏dog👏I stg

  • When Asian don’t get recognized over here they go to Asia and become bigger than ever imagined there

  • He's awesome. Best of luck to him

  • Goosebump

  • he probably didn’t win cuz he ain’t americano

  • O garoto botou muita gente no bolso.

  • I still don't understand why he wad left out.The boy got mad talent.This is not the end Jeffrey.

  • I'm ready for the album.

  • The voice of Jeffren Li really helped me when I was sad and when I'm lonely. Thank you Jeffrey Li ! 😀😀😀

  • Such perfect singing. How can they drop him? Ridiculous.

  • I was upset when he was not chosen.

  • starts at 00:26

  • これが真のイケヴォ😇😇😇👏👏👏

  • No words...he is a miracle.

  • See Simon face can guess Jeffery can’t get through. Wander why Simon is quite different compare with Jeffery’s last performance.

    • I think....Simon was wanting more "white" acts to go through. I suppose the shows media team told him(Simon)about the many racist comments that were being made toward Jeffrey. These hateful and jealous comments, were making Americans look pretty bad. People all over the world, were reading awful words directed toward a 13 year old kid and all other Asian people. So, it was decided... in advance, that they would not let him through....regardless of how well he sung. They(A.G.T.), had to cut ties with ASAP. I'm glad Shin landed up winning, his magic is awesome, he will have a fantastic Las Vegas show. I was afraid......screeching....C.H. was gonna win, now "that" would have made the show....look totally rigged. Shin was the peoples choice, he had the majority of the views and many positive comments. I'm glad an Asian won, it...kind of...."made up for"....Jeffrey's being cut "so fast". Jeffrey is working on his debut album right now and other projects, he's doing great!!

  • Jeffrey you have a remarkable voice. More talent and a greater gift than most of the contestants. You deserved to win, but never stop singing, you have your whole life ahead of you and your future must be bright.


  • I really hope that he never gives up. This is just the beginning for him.

  • he is 13 years old so he was borned in 2004? SO HE as same age as me. however i can not sing like him . why?


  • Jeffrey Li your singing One Moment In Time on AGT was out standing. Truly you should have won ..

  • How beautiful this guy is and the voice 😍

  • Chillssss down my spine... gawd. 🙌🙌🙌

  • So did he get the dog?

  • I love you jeffrey

  • he is a talent

  • Oh. My. Goodness. This is the definition of a voice of an angel. He has so much control and his voice is so soft. I wish they didn’t cut him. He would have made some good damage to the competition

  • He could be a voice of a prince in Disney

  • It still shocks me that he didn't make it...

  • A lovely talent to be set free

  • Lol, why am I not surprised. America's Got Talent? These judges' definition of talent must be [insert insult here]

  • did he get a dog?

  • knew it i know this voice from somewhere

  • so much like celine tam :3

  • They don't deserve to be judges if they are blind to his obvious talent. He is the best singer i have EVER heard on the show... sorry Grace Vanderwaal but it's true.

  • This Kid Should Be On Broadway If He's Not Already

    • He is now....his talent has been recognised! He'll be in a Broadway Musical: Hotel on the corner of bitter and sweet. Happy for him!

  • He really deserved to go through 😢

  • Beautiful

  • I'm still mad he didn't go through

    • Aren't we was quite upsetting, but, Jeffrey is do'in fine....he's working on his debut album right now.

  • Bro he was so good when he was a kid and now hes better i dont understand

  • Only reason he couldn’t go through because he was from CANADA. There is no other explanation, he was better than most.

    • Courtney is from Great Britain, it sure looks like she's been given the : "Red Carpet" treatment. The show "has their agenda", that's the explanation in a nut shell. It's all about Sob Stories and American style Political Correctness, Not True Talent....that's for sure......

  • He gave me the chills omG 💋👑

  • Oh man..his voice is so amazing..jeffery thank u for sharing your voice with all of us

  • This kid would be the only reason I might be ok with another singer winning this year.

  • His vocal control, tone and range is amazing for someone at his age. Jeffrey remains impressive

  • To all those think Jeffrey was robbed. Don't worry my friends. He will be better than ok. I am glad he lost cause record companies will control him if you get my drift

  • Asian's not getting the respect is nothing new. So sad he got robbed. He sounds way better than the singers left in the "competition".

  • Whow!!!

  • He is lip syncing that’s why he didn’t make it through

    • AGT won't allow lip syncing on their shows!!!! I read from AGT website that the singers have to inform the producers what they are going to sing and the producers will prepare the sound tracks for them at auditions and judge cuts.

    • Everybody and their brother is asking that question.....Why?? They never gave a reason, they just said "Adios!". I believe in my heart, it was because of the fact, many of his prior performances, were done....."in China". Many hundreds of thousands of Not like China "At All". This close association, "caused" many Americans to say some pretty racist and downright mean words, to him, in their US-tv comments. Jeffrey sung a beautiful Christian song and received hate filled comments, for singing So Pretty....Go Figure?? I think many people saw his awesome videos and thought : This kid is China's star....He's Theirs....Not...."Ours". Like.....any nation....can own a child's soul?? Several...US-tv comments, were telling A.G.T. : "We Want Him Out!!" A.G.T.'s people, got the message loud and clear, so....did the rest of the world. All those hateful comments made by Americans, were making people from other nations think : Geeze....there sure are a lot of Racist people, in the U.S.(that's the denying it). Many Americans, can't stand to see "a person of color" do very well. They suffer from extreme jealousy, especially......if, a person gains success.....through a Rival Nation........China. This is my opinion, others are welcome to have theirs.

    • Then why would he not make it through

    • Not True!!

  • No guy should ever sing that song but that young man nailed it.👌

  • For a real Whitney tribute

  • Did he got a dog from simon already? Haha!

  • Can’t believe he get cut off from judges so stupid this judges term, I won,t see this show at all.

  • Is he the same kid hwo sing with celine you raise me up ??

  • Lack of emotions

  • Does anyone know if he has a US-tv channel ?

    • Mapleseason I guess this channel has been run by his mum since he was 11. I know her name is Maggie Chen and it says on the "About" section that she is the contact person with her email printed there.

    • Elsie W I think that channel is run by someone else (his parents?), not him.

    • Train spotter Uk This is his US-tv channel:


  • AGT u need to change the judges...They r all morons who don't even know how to judge.. .. Simon don't waste your time and effort with those 3 idiot .....

  • hmmm plz AGT judges bring jeffrey back to the live show. ....

  • Damn, how did he not go through? I thought someone who was singing just as good as Celine Tam (He has done duets of You Raise Me Up with her on stage) Would at least get to the live shows...

  • I can't believe he didn't get to go on :(

  • Jeffrey li...I am eagerly waiting for your album🎶 You are already a don't need AGT.❣️so it's okay

  • how did he not get a golden buzzer

  • Bring Back Jeffrey Li

  • What? No golden buzzer in the first round? This is why I don't watch this show anymore. It's rigged big time. Jeffrey Li I wish you much success. You should have gone all the way.

  • I have listened to this so many times...... wonderful and amazing, Jeffrey!!

  • Love him

  • I really like this boy omfggg😭😭

  • Wow Jeffrey Li soo awesome golden voice

  • I could predict lots of girls will have a crush on Jeffrey Li 😂 😆 😂

  • Omg nice

  • where the hell is the golden buzzer? why didn't any judges have give him that?

  • Jeffrey, superstar!

  • Nempo tangkurakna rujit anying

  • kid your talent is above #agt your & celine would make a great duo, best of luck

  • So mad he didn't even get a wild card there had to be something wrong behind the scenes because he was on of the favor to win

  • I was so confused when he didn't get a golden buzzer but he didn't even get threw? I'm so confused what went wrong?

  • #JusticeForJeffrey

  • Jeffrey is fantastic! Looking forward to hearing from him again!

  • Por k hacer k un niño mienta al público k puede amarlo como nunca ⁉⁉⁉⁉⁉es un artista, cantante profesional, o es k se les olvida k en you tu encontramos de todo, es un niño muy famoso k canta desde muy pequeño, no nos hagan eso por favor, sabemos k es un show pero no mientan tanto por favor.......

  • I bawled my eyes out because of his beautiful voice

  • Nice song

  • This guy gets a standing oviation, but not a spot in the live shows

  • Wy didn't he get the golden buzzer? because he's asian Why didn't the judges give him the chance? because he's asian Yes we asian still receive this kind of silent racism, even more than black people. The proof is you see more black people on screen than asians. Pathetic truth
