It was a pleasant surprise when 13-year-old Courtney Hadwin started singing on America's Got Talent Tuesday night.

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. After she was done rocking out, the judges were quick to shower Courtney with praise.

In the audition, Courtney initially comes on stage and awkwardly answers judge Mel B's questions.

Sophie calls him "Mr. Simon". "You're from a whole different era", said Howie Mandel. "I had a dream that you pushed the Golden Buzzer!" Before she was even done, the audience was on their feet. Mandel says as he strikes the buzzer on the judges' desk.

And express herself she did.
