Courtney Hadwin brings down the house on AGT

13-year-old Courtney Hadwin wowed the crowd and judges during her performance on America’s Got Talent. After admitting she was “a little bit nervous” as she answered Mel B’s questions, Hadwin began belting Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” dominating the stage as she fearlessly played to the judges and packed crowd. Howie Mandel compared her to Janis Joplin. “You are not from this era. You’re from a whole different era. And I’m a huge Janis Joplin fan and there’s a story — if you’ve ever watched the documentary — Clive Davis, he goes to the Monterey Pop Festival and he sees this young girl that nobody’s ever seen before, that nobody knows. It was the first time that Janis Joplin got signed and that changed her life.
