A shy British schoolgirl has blown the America's Got Talent judges away with her rendition of Otis Redding's Hard to Handle, earning herself a golden buzzer fast-track to the finals.
Courtney Hadwin, 13, from Hesleden, County Durham, earned a standing ovation from all four judges after her unexpected performance on Tuesday night.
And judge Howie Mandel was so floored that he immediately used the golden buzzer to catapult her straight to the live shows.
The buzzer can only be used once by each judge during the audition stages, and those who earn it are exempt from a judge vote and further rounds of the competition.
Comparing her to Janis Joplin - who also found success at a young age - actor Howie said he'd give her a record deal if he could.
