July 6, 2005
In her video package, Courtney explains that all her musical idols are from Los Angeles. A James Brown record changed her life at age 11. She performs Ike and Tina Turner’s classic “River Deep Mountain High.” She starts out quietly before breaking out her nutty maniac routine. Sorry. I just can’t wrap my head around her caterwauling, spazzy performances. The yelling, the shouting. She has no control or finesse. But I suppose one person’s feature is another person’s bug. Howie says, “You are amazing!” She’s his Golden Buzzer. “We are watching a superstar in the making.” Mel thinks she “killed it” this week. “Brilliant, original.” Heidi mentions that teens have been winning America’s Got Talent. Yes, and I think it’s time to change it up. Simon thinks she’s teach a new generation all about rock n roll. When she’s not singing, Courtney is like a scared little rabbit up there on stage.
Courtney is Howie’s golden buzzer. He’s very very excited. In her video, we see her Youtube fans reacting to her James Brown performance. Tonight she sings “Born to Be Wild.” Sorry. Not a fan NOT A FAN. She screeches, screams and ugly-faces her way through the song with absolutely NO finesse. Ever see John Belushi’s parody of Joe Cocker? It’s kind of like that.If she were an adult, she would not have made it past her audition. Her appeal is all about how a shy, mild mannered 14 year old transforms on stage. “You were born to be wild,” says Howie. He predicts that she will win. Mel calls her out there. She loves her, but feels she lost a little confidence this week.Heidi agrees with Mel a little bit. But still appreciates her authenticity. Simon thinks she needs to be raw and authentic. “I absolutely love you.” He feels she needs to be in the finale and “has a shot.”

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.
Simon Cowell has been known for being forceful with his advice to hopefuls competing on America's Got Talent.
The 58-year-old judge was so stunned by 14-year-old singer Courtney Hadwin in the first live quarterfinals on Tuesday that he warned her to ignore everyone — even him.
'Normally, I give people advice on what to do next. This is my advice — don't listen to a single word I say,' insisted Simon, who made his name discovering and then shaping superstar acts

Stepping on to the AGT stage and speaking with the judges prior to her performance, Courtney was incredibly nervous and rather awkward. It wasn’t until the music started that true magic happened
Courtney performs 'I Got You (I Feel Good)': Semi Final – The Voice Kids UK 2017
When Courtney opened her mouth to sing, it was absolutely mind blowing. This 13-year-old, shy girl seemed to be taken over by a musical spirit. Her awkward, yet cool dance moves accompanied her incredibly vocals.
Courtney, Eboni, Hollie – 'Dancing In The Street': Battles – The Voice Kids UK 2017
My first impression was that of Janis Joplin. You simply don’t hair vocals like that in this day in age, none the less coming from a 13-year-old.

Courtney performs 'And I'm Telling You': Live Final – The Voice Kids UK 2017

14-Year old Courtney Hadwin talks Woodstock & at what age she knew she had a good voice.Also is a clip of her giving an Interview on The BBC Radio 5 Live.
Howie told Courtney he wouldn’t be able to sign her to a record label, but he could do something else for her. That’s when he slammed his hand down on the golden buzzer.

Prior to hitting the stage Courtney expected the judges to hit the big red X buzzer…never the golden buzzer!
My prediction…she will win the entire show this year! Just sayin’.

Sandra Ahlbom You were outstanding in AGT!!! Gave me chills. I can’t wait to see where you go from here. You are extremely talented! I’m with Tyra….I have never seen anything like that. Wow! Good luck!
Mérédite Cousin I am from New Caledonia, it' s a little island close to Australia where we speak French…I just saw your video and YOU are just Wonderful! Do not stop singing! It I your destiny: you are a Diva!
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.
Carol Ann Morgan This young girl LIVES her talent…Weird moves??? Her entire body is consumed with music, she can’t help but move, it’s in her spirit! I’ll watch for you, she is phenomenal, and tonight her life and her loved one’s lives changed forever!
Enzo Della Corte The only reason she won’t win this competition is they’re making it about howie as much as they’re making it about courtney, either way, who cares! this girl is here to stay and will make it big with the title or not!
