Courtney Hadwin was swaying back and forth on stage, telling the judges she was a little nervous before her song began.

"Bloody hell, Courtney!" exclaims Simon Cowell, once the 13-year-old has finished, describing her as a "lion" when she sings.

She's not the first British act to do well in America's Got Talent, with Wimbledon ventriloquist Paul Zerdin winning the 2015 series. "Oh my gosh! You are not from this era". Watch the video to see her fantastic performance. "I am a huge Janis Joplin fan".

In her performance Tuesday, she wowed the judges with her rendition of Frank Sinatra's "My Way". "It was the first time Janis Joplin got signed and that changed her life".

Fellow judge Howie Mandel was also blown away by Courtney, describing her as being like someone from a different era, before he pressed the Golden Buzzer - to signal that she has made through to the live shows in the competition.

Courtney said getting the golden buzzer was more than she "could have dreamed".
