There are some acts on America’s Got Talent that will be ingrained in your memory for a very long time.
Even though she is only a teenager, Courtney Hadwin is already one of those performers.
The 14-year-old girl made news when she auditioned for America’s Got Talent and completely wowed the judges with her performance. Even Howie Mandel compared her to a younger version of Janis Joplin.
Courtney was the recipient of Howie’s Golden Buzzer, which catapulted her into the competition’s live performances. This was completely understandable. This meant that she did not have to see the episodes of Judges Cut and instead went directly to Hollywood.
The opportunity to see Courtney perform once again has finally presented itself, and once again, she has utterly astonished each and every one of us.
In light of the fact that Courtney is often reserved, her skill is quite astonishing. When she is not acting, it is really clear from the way that she moves. However, when Courtney begins to sing, she goes through a total metamorphosis.
Courtney’s second performance on America’s Got Talent was a tribute to the King of Soul, and she chose to perform in his style. James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” was the song that she choose to perform.
Her show was up and running in a matter of seconds, and she kicked things off with a high-pitched shriek that demanded the whole attention of the crowd.
As Courtney went across the stage, she not only stole the show but also demanded attention. Her dance movements had a wacky vibe to them, but they were absolutely in keeping with the vibe of her performance.
After Courtney had concluded her outstanding performance of “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag,” all four of the judges rose to their feet and applauded enthusiastically.
Simon Cowell sprang up from his seat and rushed over to Howie in order to give him a hug. Because, presumably, he believed that Howie had made the correct choice when he decided to give Courtney the Golden Buzzer.
The discussion was opened with a statement from Heidi Klum, who said:
“I cannot remember the last time that I was this enthused about a new artist. It has been a very, very long time.” You cannot be compared to anybody else since you are in a league of your own. I like both the manner in that you dance and the music that you make. “I adore you, and I believe that you are a very unique and wonderful young person.”
Mel B said unequivocally that Courtney is just 14 years old and then went on to discuss the number of individuals who have made jokes about the manner in which Courtney dances. After hearing this, Courtney responded by saying that “not many people understand me.”
On the other hand, each of the judges did not waste any time in letting her know that she had been successful.
“And you are really amazing!” You are absolutely right. To hell with them. I’d like to purchase tickets to your concert later tonight. And the night after that, and the night after that, and the night after that.”
In all honesty, Simon was at a loss for words on what he should say to Courtney. He advised her not to pay attention to what other people had to say and to continue acting in the same manner as she had been doing up to that point because it was fantastic.
The video was uploaded to the America’s Got Talent Facebook page, where it was met with an immediate response from the show’s followers in the form of thousands of likes, comments, and shares.
