13-Year-Old Girl Sings Just Like Janis Joplin on "America's Got Talent"

June 18, 2018

We didn't see that one coming.

When we first see 13-year-old Courtney Hadwin walk out on to the America's Got Talent stage, we see a shy, timid teenage girl. But when the Black Crowes' song "Hard to Handle" kicks in, we see Courtney explode into a miniature Janis Joplin!

Courtney's energetic transformation was enough to not only impress the judges, she earned the golden buzzer from Howie Mandel, sending her directly to the live shows.

Check out Courtney in action below!

If you think Courtney looks a little familiar, that's because she was featured on The Voice Kids UK in 2017. Just watch her audition singing "Nutbush City Limitys" below!
