World-famous TV show, America’s Got Talent, was created to discover new talents, intrigue audiences, and light up new stars, helping them achieve their dreams. Experienced and demanding judges are quite difficult to surprise. However, this girl managed to hit the audience and make the stunned judges watch her performance with a standing ovation.
14-year-old Courtney Hadwin has been repeatedly claimed to reach the fame of a rock star. The girl already knows exactly what she wants to be in the future. Before the American show, the young singer participated in the British version of The Voice Kids and even reached the finals. However, she became famous all around the world only after sparkling at the America’s Got Talent qualifying round.
Before appearing on stage, Courtney was noticeably nervous. Judge Mel B reassured the girl:
Don't be nervous. I know that this is a big stage and there's lots of people here, but you are here for a reason. So, go for it and good luck!
Luckily, Courtney’s uncertainty vanished completely from the very first seconds of the song! The young contestant seemed to transform into a super star as she belted out Hard to Handle by The Black Crowes. Judges even compared Courtney with Janis Joplin, an iconic rock singer who personified the music of the 1960s.
The performance of the talented British girl excited everyone, and Howie Mandel grabbed the opportunity to press the golden buzzer, allowing Hadwin to go straight through to the finals of the show. The video with Courtney’s performance rallied up more than 16 million views in just 5 days. The girl wouldn’t have achieved such great success without her supportive father, who was by her side throughout the competition.
A talented singer further pleased the audience with her magnificent performance of the hits of Janis Joplin and British rock band, The Struts. Unfortunately, Courtney failed to gain first place, allowing the magician Shin Lim to win the show.
However, Courtney wasn’t upset and soon went on tour with other America’s Got Talent participants. She is now a rising star ready to impress her fans with an unusual performance. Bright charisma and a cute, shy smile turned Courtney into the favorite performer for thousands of viewers from all around the world. We also wish the young star gains her desired success and hope to hear about her in the not-too-distant future.
