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

In a post on her Facebook page Courtney Hadwin said: "I didn't know what to expect when I auditioned for America's Got Talent but the Golden Buzzer was more than I ever could have dreamed of".

"Bloody hell, Courtney", Simon Cowell said.

After appearing nervous on stage, Courtney Hadwin performed an energetic rendition of Hard to Handle by Otis Redding, later covered by the Black Crowes.

With Hadwin headed straight through to the live shows, she's one step closer to that million-dollar prize.

Watch the adorable audition below! Howie Mandel told Courtney a story about Clive Davis discovering Janis Joplin.

"The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is give you.my golden buzzer!"


When the song ended she got a standing ovation, much to her dad's delight, who was watching with host Tyra Banks from backstage.

Host Tyra Bank adds: "You were absolutely unbelievable". She has also sung locally in Hartlepool, but America's Got Talent opens up a whole new audience for the schoolgirl.

"She is really shy", her father says at her audition for America's Got Talent.

In 2018, she was a finalist on The Voice Kids UK, airing on ITV in the United Kingtom.

The teen also appeared as part of the South Tyneside Festival summer concert line up in Bents Park in South Shields in July a year ago where she entertained more than 18,000 people.
