  • I love jeffrey li💕💕💕💕💕🇮🇩🇮🇩

  • Just have to come here to listen to Jeffrey's beautiful singing several times a week. 😍😊

  • Woww woww que hermosa voz... Amo esa canción y el cantándola es espectacular 👏👏👏👏💜💜💜💜

  • You so amazing jeffrey li you have high voice 😍😍😍 Ilove you voice...😘😘 Good voice Good job for you Jeffrey 👩 Good bless you

  • screw you guys jeffrey has had this amazing gift since he was so little he deserves better and he will

  • Jeffrey Li is an excellent singer and is on key. Great voice.

  • I am not in any way related to him. I am kind of questioning agt since I don't believe I have seen any chinese people in the performance industry. It's all white and some black people with the ocasional Hispanics. I don't see any chinese people or asians as a matter of fact acting in marvel or making it in the music industry.

  • I'm still listening to this in 2019! 😊👍 Glad that he has moved on in his music journey and his debut album will be out soon. Can't wait!

  • Top 10 best anime singing battles

  • เพราะมากค่าาา😍

  • if i had to followed this young man, i would have just gone home

  • did he already got a dog from simon?

  • He has power voice👏👏👏

  • Hi Jeffrey li from philippines

  • This boy give me a goosebumps when I listen it......

  • I wonder what is dog??

  • This kid was far better than anyone I’ve seen on the show. He deserved the Golden Buzzer. I’ve seen a few of the people they “buzz” and they’ve got nothing on this kid. Honestly this makes me lose respect for the judges. The kid will go far without this show, but still he was cheated.

  • Man, this kid is awesome! Get with it AGT!!!!!

  • he the kids best singer💓💓

  • Outsold half of the pop industry

  • He’s gonna become big I already know it this kid is amazing seriously so beautiful inside out his voice is out of this world amazing

  • I have been watching this and his other videos since AGT. 😍😊🎶🎤🎵

  • Each year Jeffery grow older,his voice grow more powerful.

  • He sounds like Greyson chance lol

  • This is magic!!Great voice!

  • Please go to bighit entertainment in south korea

  • Very nice. He's the best singer.

  • No pos fíjate que nose inglés:'v

  • I'm sure if he had a sad story he would still be in. I sang against him in toronto amazing child his family is really sweet and nice

  • give him oscar plz

  • AHHH my gosh I love him so much, his voice is so angelic

  • Just the title he took should have been enough to pass him that song is suicide and he went for it . Whitney’s 1989 Grammies performance is UNBEATABLE, a vocal god performance. And this little kid went for it !!!


  • Angel and him should have made it through 💯 instead of PACman dance team EDIT: Blue Tokyo should have made it too. They were way beyond the high school team

  • Sometimes when they don't win the show. They win in other ways. It happened to many others. Including Jennifer Lawrence. They are in a cat Of their own. And this kid is one of them.

  • 💖💞

  • THis guy is in my schoool

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

    • Shin Lim , the magician.

  • 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.

  • これが真のイケヴォ😇😇😇👏👏👏

  • 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!!!
