“America’s Got Talent,” summer’s No. 1-rated and most-watched show, has revealed its top 36 acts, including three previously eliminated acts, brought back as “wild cards.”
The talented Season 13 performers are headed to the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to perform live for America’s vote beginning Tuesday, as they vie for the $1 million grand prize and a headline show at the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas Nov. 2-4, according to a news release. The first live show airs from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
On Tuesday, the first 12 acts of the top 36 will take the stage to perform for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and host Tyra Banks. Viewers will be able to choose their favorite act by phone, on NBC.com, and via the AGT app (available on the App Store and Google Play). New this season Xfinity X1 customers will be able to vote via their set-top box during the live broadcast of the show by saying “Vote for AGT” into the X1 voice remote or by pressing the remote’s Info button.
13-year-old singer – She was Howie Mandel’s Golden Buzzer. – Courtney has had more than 200 million views of her audition online. Courtney says she’s “quite shy.” She is inspired by Janis Joplin, who was always herself. UNPOPULAR OPINION AHEAD. Her singing sounds like a lot of screeching and screaming to me. She lurches around the stage. And I just don’t get it. She’s singing “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” and her take is uhm interesting. I’ll say this again. It’s her age and demeanor off stage that sells this. If she were an adult with that act, Simon probably would have buzzed her. “I have not been this excited about a new artist in a long time,” says Heidi. “We get you,” says Mel B. Well that’s good. Because I don’t. Simon has NO advice for Courtney. Just keep doing what you’re doing he says.

Do not miss out on Official Courtney Hadwin Merchandise, show your love to her
Get yours: Here
DS Ullery My jaw is still on the floor. Of all the acts to receive a golden buzzer, this young miss deserved it the most. If I had turned on my television without having any context and seen her performance, my first thought would have been that I was watching a documentary about a young Janis Joplin. I honestly have no words to encapsulate how amazing it was watching her come to life on that stage tonight. Outstanding
Lisa Zeitlinger Janis was called weird , awkward & different in the most wonderful way possible! She lacked confidence in herself. So is Courtney. She sang it from her soul. That is missing from so much of the music today. Most definitely buzzer worthy. I’ve watched every act since Season 1. Just my humble opinion.
Marina Zanelli Love you Howie for this most perfect golden buzzer pick. Haters don't know talent. And those mean spirited negative comments are shameful. But I guess the entire audience and 4 judge standing ovations don't prove anything right. She won't need your votes. She is special, got soul and clearly the voice. This girl is the real deal. Watch her fly
William Keleher What you just witnessed was a massive mind blowing event. I honestly did not expect that at all, I was thinking more in line with something like a Celine Dion style song, not Janis Joplin!!!!
This young lady is going to go on and win season 13. Seems fitting an 13 yo wins AGT season 13.
Jennifer Nakatani 13 she is 13 people like omg! What were you doing at that age? Also to think she's not picking generic media pop culture music but classical rock and roll with the feel and groove of it she is obviously not just talented but intelligent! love Courtney Hadwin Live Show
Sharon Diedrich oh my word people, she is 13 years old…to the ones who said, her shyness was an act…really, who gives you the right to judge…their are people out there who are shy and when they sing or whatever they do, their talent comes out…what if you are shy and you start to sing, and then your talent comes out, and what if someone judged you and said,that shyness was an act, you wouldn't like it…knock it off people…show respect and stop judging…she is only 13 years old..
Amelia Shawnee Amazing, Amazing, Amazing…. I just watched the live show and watched this twice…. Great fan of Janice Joplin and now I'm a fan of her… Congratulations…. You did a fantastic job… Can wait to see you sing again..
Kaylee Dietz I agree with Howie. The soul inside that young woman is not of this era. I'm still in shock. Did not expect that AT ALL. Was incredible. I can't wait to see what she sings next. She is Janis Joplin personified. The fact she wasn't breathless at all during that performance still baffles me. Just…wow. Great Golden Buzzer.
And for any trolls hating on this young girl…let's see you go out there and do it.
Tammy Howard Heckman So glad to witness this incredible debut! This is not anything you can learn... it’s natural born SOUL!! I’ve always wondered if there would ever be anyone as unique as Janis in my lifetime. This girl has “it”… God given talent! So unique and incredible! She is feeling it from her head to her toes! Can’t wait to see her again!
Rhia Louise Jasmin Garcia I started crying when she received the golden buzzer and cried more when she ran and hugged his dad watching her.. im a daddy's girl and this is absolutely touching.. congratulations young lady you are the reincarnation of Janis Joplin.. i hope for the best dear..
Nicole Petrus Amazing Howard! Loved your buzzer choice. She was simply amazing. Sing your heart out young lady! You are seriously going places. Courtney Hadwin Live Show
