Watch Painfully Shy 13-Year-Old Singer Slay On ‘America’s Got Talent’

The latest Golden Buzzer was given out tonight on America's Got Talent!

However Courtney's already been making quite a name for herself with her awesome voice, performing at local events and keeping fans up to date with her latest news on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

She's not the first British act to do well in America's Got Talent, with Wimbledon ventriloquist Paul Zerdin winning the 2015 series.

"Bloody hell, Courtney!" exclaims Simon Cowell, once the 13-year-old has finished, describing her as a "lion" when she sings. Then he pressed the buzzer to catapult her aspirations forward. "I mean, genuinely incredible". "Oh my gosh! You are not from this era".

Mandel went on to recount the story of Clive Davis discovering Janice Joplin at the Monterey Pop Festival, and signing her to a contract that went on to launch her into superstardom. "I'm not Clive Davis". I was a great feel-good moment for everyone, especially Courtney, who now goes straight to the live shows.America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Hadwin openly wept with joy as the golden confetti rained down from the rafters, and was embraced in a big hug by her proud father, who had been watching his daughter perform from the wings of the stage. "You're like this shy little thing when you first came out".

The teenager is no stranger to the stage, having shown up in The Voice Kids in 2017 - where her feisty take on Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits prompted Danny Jones to spin his chair for her. She later tweeted saying it was "more than I ever could have dreamed of".

She has also sung locally in Hartlepool, but America's Got Talent opens up a whole new audience for the schoolgirl.
