ABritish schoolgirl has won a place in the quarterfinals of America's Got Talent after wowing judges with her stunning audition. Courtney Hadwin, 13, from Hesleden, in County Durham, received a standing ovation from all four judges for her stirring rendition of Otis Redding's Hard to Handle. Judge Howie Mandel was so impressed he hit the 'golden buzzer', meaning Courtney will be fast-tracked to the quarterfinals and a chance of winning the $1million prize. The talented teenager is no stranger to talent competitions, having narrowly missed out on the top prize on The Voice Kids UK. Courtney, a student at The Academy at Shotton Hall, in Peterlee, appeared nervous as she walked on stage for her audition in a packed auditorium. She was reassured by judge and former Spice Girl Mel B, who said: 'I know this is a big stage with lots of people here but you're here for a reason to go for it and good luck. ' As the music started, Courtney's nerves disappeared and she launched into a confident performance of Redding's 1968 hit. The transformation stunned judge Simon Cowell, who said: 'Bloody hell Courtney.'You were this shy little thing when you came out. Then you sing and you're like a lion.I mean, genuinely incredible.' But it was comedian and actor Mandel who sealed her fate. The judge compared the 13-year-old to Janis Joplin, who won a record deal as a youngster at a festival. Though he couldn't offer a record deal, he said the best he could do for Courtney was to press the Golden Buzzer, parachuting her straight to the live show. 'You are not from this era.You're from a whole different era,' he said.Each judge can only use the Golden Buzzer for one act, so the Canadian was clearly overwhelmed by the teenager's talent. Courtney was joined on stage by her father, who hugged her as she wiped back tears. Mandel and presenter Tyra Banks later joined the singer on stage.Courtney later posted on Twitter: 'I didn't know what to expect when I auditioned for @AGT but the golden buzzer was more than I ever could have dreamed of. Thank you so much @howiemandel I am so happy and can't thank you enough xx' The 13-year-old will now appear before the judges on the live shows, where audiences will play a role in competing for a $1million prize. Courtney was just 12 years old when she appeared on ITV children's talent show The Voice Kids earlier this year. However the aspiring singer was initially less successful than she was on America's Got Talent, with just one of the three judges turning around at her audition. She stuck to her rock and soul roots, performing Ike & Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits and Martha and the Vandellas' hit Dancing in the Streets in the first two rounds of the competition. She followed it up with a third classic, James Brown's I Feel Good.Courtney showed off her dance moves throughout the talent show, giving judges and viewers a powerful all-round performance. It was enough to earn Courtney a place in the live finals of the show, under the
