Courtney Hadwin Receives Golden Buzzer After 'AGT' Audition

Courtney Hadwin gets Golden Buzzer from Howie on America's Got Talent 2018

A 13-year-old girl wowed the America's Got Talent judges with her singing and earned Howie Mandel's golden buzzer in the process.

Courtney Hadwin will go straight to the live shows after her performance on Tuesday's episode of the talent show.

Courtney, 13, is from Hartlepool and her audition for America's Got Talent was seen on the show this week.

From the first moment Hadwin began to sing, judge Simon Cowell was absolutely floored, and he had nothing but praise for the incredible songstress after her performance.

For the rest of the song the audience are on their feet, as she belts out the 1968 song - and the performance finishes with a standing ovation from everyone in the auditorium.

"Bloody hell, Courtney", Simon Cowell said.

Each judge gets to press the golden buzzer only once per series for acts they think deserve to go straight to the quarter finals, bypassing the next rounds of auditions.

"I'm not Clyde Davis. And then you sing and you're like a lion", Cowell told her. "The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is..."

"Never ever underestimate the quiet person in the room", Tyra Banks tweeted. 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.

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.

"America's Got Talent" returns for its fourth night of auditions next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CityTV.

America's Got Talent airs on Netflix in the United Kingdom, with new episodes on Thursdays.
