'Shy' singer blows away America's Got Talent judges

America’s Got Talent Courtney AGT

Simon Cowell told her, "You were like this shy little thing when you first came out, and then you sing, and you're like a lion".

America's Got Talent had one of the cutest auditions!

The British teen, who initially admitted that she was "a little bit nervous", wowed the panel of celebrity judges with her performance of Otis Redding's Hard to Handle.

AGT Season 13 airs every Tuesday on NBC. "I've never seen anything like that", host Tyra Banks said of her performance.

Tuesday night, Sophie Fatu made her way to the stage of "America's Got Talent".

This wasn't Courtney's first time performing on television. "The only thing I can do for you young lady is give you", Mandel explained before hitting the Golden Buzzer. Watch the video to see her awesome performance. Rather than being put off by her, the crusty Cowell's heart melted, especially after she delivered a surprisingly polished version of the Frank Sinatra classic "My Way".

Courtney, pupil at The Academy at Shotton Hall, has been signing for a number of years, after taking singing lessons.

Courtney competed in The Voice Kids UK past year but missed out on the top prize.

The golden buzzer sends the Courtney right to the live shows and lets her bypass Vegas week. She later tweeted saying it was "more than I ever could have dreamed of". Before she was even done, the audience was on their feet.
