We have been following Courtney Hadwin on America's Got Talent since the beginning of her journey when she started out as a shy 13-year old artist but her transformation into the final stages of the competition is incredible!
Courtney has a seemingly "old soul" with a passion for 90s music and an artistic talent like no other. Her unique singing style paired with her killer moves is a sight to behold. This time, she wows the audience with a James Brown classic, "Papas got a brand new bag". Her performances have racked up over 200 million views online.
By the end of her final performance, Courtney had the audience and 4 judges on their feet, with Howie obviously pleased with his Golden buzzer winner. While there is no doubt that Courtney is one amazing performer, her past has gained some controversy as it came to light that she was actually a finalist on UK's The Voice. Courtney's grandfather addressed the issue saying that they had not broken any of the rules of America's Got Talent explaining that "U.K. doesn't get her," but that they're "confident she will do well in the U.S." And indeed she has so far.
Whether she in the UK or America, there is no denying that she shines on stage!
