Courtney Hadwin at America’s Got Talent

When she came out on stage, Courtney seemed really shy but when she let rip, her vocals amazed the panel and judge Howie Mandel hit the famous golden buzzer putting her straight through to the live show.

Judge Howie Mandel goes on to liken her to Janis Joplin.

She even made no-nonsense judge Simon Cowell, who is her favorite, smile from ear-to-ear. "Oh my gosh. You are not from this era", he says seeming disappointed he can't offer her a record deal there and then.

All four judges gave Sophie the thumbs-up to move on to the next round of the competition.

She's not the first British act to do well in America's Got Talent, with Wimbledon ventriloquist Paul Zerdin winning the 2015 series.

Watch her performance on the video below.

Courtney danced around on stage, belting out the lyrics, while everyone in the audience was shocked by the young performer.

"I'm not Clyde Davis". "I had a dream that you pushed the Golden Buzzer!"

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.

"America's Got Talent" returns for its fourth night of auditions next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CityTV.

Courtney is no stranger to talent shows - she also competed in The Voice Kids in 2017 and was mentored by McFly and McBusted star Danny Jones.
