Courtney Hadwin gets the golden buzzer and she moving straight to the live shows.

Courtney Hadwin took the stage on Tuesday's "America's Got Talent" as a bashful 13-year-old barely able to address the panelists.

"Bloody hell, Courtney", Simon Cowell said.

The youngster appeared quite nervous when talking to the judges before her performance but came into her element when she started singing Otis Redding classic Hard to Handle. "I am quiet and sticking to my own path", she says.

She's not the first British act to do well in America's Got Talent, with Wimbledon ventriloquist Paul Zerdin winning the 2015 series.
