Courtney Hadwin Receives Golden Buzzer After 'AGT' Audition

Courtney Hadwin took the stage on Tuesday's "America's Got Talent" as a bashful 13-year-old barely able to address the panelists.

But just who is Courtney - and why might she look a bit familiar?

In the audition, Courtney initially comes on stage and awkwardly answers judge Mel B's questions.

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

The golden buzzer sends the Courtney right to the live shows and lets her bypass Vegas week.

So much so that she had all four of them on their feet, with Cowell telling her: 'Bloody hell Courtney...you were like this shy little thing when you first came out, and then you sing and you're like a lion. "The only thing I can do for you, young lady, is give you..." Channeling her inner Janis Joplin, the young singer delivered a memorable performance that left a huge impression on the judges, especially Simon Cowell. Mandel says as he strikes the buzzer on the judges' desk.

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

Host Tyra Bank adds: "You were absolutely fantastic". She later tweeted saying it was "more than I ever could have dreamed of".

Before she sang, Hadwin's father explained that his daughter was so shy and reclusive she had a hard time talking with people or making friends, and communicated best through her singing.
