Courtney Hadwin: Teen Rock Star Slays “Pretty Little Thing” – America’s Got Talent: The Champions
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.
