'Shy' singer blows away America's Got Talent judges

NBC    
     JUDGES SHOCK Cowell and co love Courtney's audition

Courtney Hadwin, 13, from Hesleden in Country Durham took to the stage in the U.S. overnight and impressed judge Howie Mandel so much he hit the golden buzzer of glory. "Mel B tried to get Courtney to relax by saying, 'You're here for a reason, so go for it".

And "go for it" is exactly what she did.

"You are not from this era; you are from a whole different era", Howie Mandel told her.

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

"Bloody hell, Courtney! You were this shy little thing when you first came out. And then you sing, and you're like a lion", Cowell marveled.

13-year-old singer Courtney Hadwin hit the stage for a performance on Tuesday night (June 12) - and her singing skills were so good that Howie Mandel hit the golden buzzer after her audition!

How to pre-register for The Elder Scrolls: Blades
It can be hard to bring a console or PC game to the mobile screen, so we are hoping that The Elder Scrolls: Blades turns out well. Blades looks like a hugely ambitious game and it's clear Bethesda has gone to lengths to ensure it's fully optimised for mobile.

But despite missing out on the title, Courtney's performances on the show earned her a string of rave reviews from a new army of fans on social media.

She even made no-nonsense judge Simon Cowell, who is her favorite, smile from ear-to-ear.

"Genuinely incredible", said Simon.

"I'm not Clyde Davis. The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is give you..." After she was done rocking out, the judges were quick to shower Courtney with praise.

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.

America's Got Talent had one of the cutest auditions!
