  • America's Got Talent season 13

A 13-year-old from County Durham has wowed the judges of America's Got Talent, earning herself Howie Mandel's golden buzzer. "You're from a whole different era", said Howie Mandel.

Launching into Otis Redding's 'Hard to Handle', Courtney left the judges and everyone in the crowd completely speechless - jaws basically dropped everywhere.

Then, Hadwin opened her mouth and showed off just how big a voice the small teen truly had, delivering a flamboyant and energetic rendition of the iconic tune that absolutely blew away everyone in the audience. Tyra Banks serves as host while Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell serves as judges. The judge marveled, "You are not from this era".

But Rodman's words stood out more, particularly when he began comparing President Trump and former President Barack Obama. He did such a smart thing, and I feel so badly about Otto Warmbier, that was the one thing thing", Trump continued.

"I'm not Clyde Davis". I was a great feel-good moment for everyone, especially Courtney, who now goes straight to the live shows.America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC. Watch the video to see her unbelievable performance. "I had a dream that you pushed the Golden Buzzer!"

However, when it came time to actually audition, no one was expecting the kind of performance the shy teenage "AGT" hopeful was going to pull out. After she was done rocking out, the judges were quick to shower Courtney with praise.

And the young talent is no stranger to the limelight of TV, having already stared in the ITV's The Voice Kids past year.
