  • NBC               Courtney Hadwin 14 competed in the'America's Got Talent final

Courtney, from Hesleden, Co Durham, failed to take home the £760,000 prize after finishing in sixth place on the smash hit show.

Following her cover of Tina Turner's River Deep - Mountain High, he told her: "Amazing".

Thank you for signing up for the Sunrise Newsletter.

"Garth, if you are watching the show, please write Michael a song", Simon said on the show.

Hadwin received Howie Mandel's Golden Buzzer during the judges' auditions, and has won over viewers with her confidence on stage.

The British teenager previously took part in The Voice Kids UK, and is able to compete in America's Got Talent as the competition is open to anyone with a visitor visa to the US. Tweets ranged from "America got it right" to "WHY WHY WHY WHY". "You are more than a great singer, you are a trendsetter".

Courtney competed past year in the UK's The Voice Kids, where she got through to the live finals after being tutored by McFly's Danny Jones.

"After the quarterfinals, he told me I needed to get away from the (card) table, to move away from being small and get bigger", Lim told USA TODAY moments after his victory at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on Wednesday.

Courtney's become well known for her energetic performances!

"You are going to inspire people".

A British teenager has just missed out on being crowned the victor of 'America's Got Talent' after being sent home on the United Kingdom version of 'The Voice Kids'.

Before the results were announced, Courtney posted on social media saying it had been "an awesome journey" and that she's "loved every second of it".

But who stands the best chance of winning this season of America's Got Talent?

Weeks ago, after Ketterer's powerful performance during the quarter-finals round, Simon Cowell called out Brooks and challenged him to pen an original tune for the hopeful to sing during the finals.
