Shy teen earns Golden Buzzer with soulful performance on ‘America’s Got Talent’

When Courtney Hadwin took the stage on Tuesday's "America's Got Talent", the judges didn't know what to make of the likeable yet incredibly shy young woman who stood before them.

Before hitting the "America's Got Talent" stage, Hadwin previously competed on "The Voice Kids UK", where she made it to the final rounds of competition.

She soulfully sang "Hard to Handle" by Otis Redding.

Howie Mandel seemed equally impressed with her audition.

"Genuinely incredible", said Simon. "Oh my gosh! You are not from this era".

Watch her performance on the video below. He continued, "I'm a huge Janis Joplin fan". Comparing Hadwin to a young Joplin, Mandel recalled the story of how legendary music producer Clive Davis discovered Joplin and immediately signed her to his label.


And Howie hits the Golden Buzzer putting Courtney straight through to the Live Shows. "I'm not Clive Davis".

The show first aired on NBC on Tuesday, May 29 and in the run up, Courtney could be seen on the advertising trailer. She has also sung locally in Hartlepool, but America's Got Talent opens up a whole new audience for the schoolgirl.

"Thank you so much Howie Mandel I am so happy and can't thank you enough".

And the young talent is no stranger to the limelight of TV, having already stared in the ITV's The Voice Kids a year ago.

Courtney said getting the golden buzzer was more than she "could have dreamed".
