A 13-year-old British schoolgirl has won a golden buzzer that has earned her a place in the quarterfinals of America’s Got Talent after stunning the judges and audience with her flawless performance.
Courtney Hadwin from Durham, United Kingdom received a standing ovation from all four judges and the crowd for her amazing rendition of Otis Redding’s Hard To Handle.
Courtney initially appeared nervous on stage but as soon as the song was played, she gave the audience and the judges a stirring performance
It was quite hard to believe that the powerful voice came from a 13-year-old girl!
All four judges were left stunned with her performance
Judge Howie Mandel even gave her a golden buzzer, sending Courtney straight to the quarterfinals in the running for USD1 million prize
Each judge can only hit the Golden Buzzer once in every season of the show so that clearly means Howie was utterly impressed with Courtney’s audition.
Behind her confident performance, Courtney actually was quite disappointed when she narrowly missed out on the top prize on The Voice Kids UK last year
However, she remained positive and decided to fly to the US where she then entered America’s Got Talent to showcase her unique talent.
It seems like all her efforts have finally paid off!
