Source – You are not ready for Courtney Hadwin. Howie Mandel was not ready. Simon Cowell was not ready. Heidi Klum was not ready. Tyra Banks was not ready. And you are not ready for the 13-year-old rock legend in the making that took America’s Got Talent by storm last night.
The shy teenager took the stage last night and she could barely get through the brief one-on-one interview with judge Mel B because she was so nervous. She meekly admitted that music was her favorite subject in school, her quiet answers prompting encouragement from the judges. And then Hadwin assumed the position, signaled that she was ready to rock, and rock she did!
What followed was the teenager’s take on the Otis Redding classic “Hard to Handle.” Hadwin transformed, absolutely possessed by the music and more confident than rock stars with a million times her stage experience. She wailed like Janis and shimmied like Mick to the classic song, completely wowing every single person in the audience. Seriously, Heidi and Tyra’s reactions are perfect GIFs in the making.
Jesus Christ that was unreal. I was in full on tears watching her dad lose it and her crying tears of joy. See, the world isn’t all amputated leg meat and hatred. It’s full of beautiful moments like Courtney Hadwin’s life being changed in 2 minutes.
Have a killer hump day!
BTW. Mel B. Still Would.
