For the semi-final Courtney performed a song from the 1960s called Born to be Wild with head judge Simon Cowell describing her as a "bundle of excitement".

She went straight through to the live shows after one of the other judges, Howie Mandel - he's a comedian, actor and TV host - pushed his golden buzzer for her.

After seeing her sing in the semi-final Howie told Courtney: "You were born to be wild! This was wild! You were amazing. My prediction is you're going to be the winner."

There will be a two-night final of America's Got Talent on 18 September when the winner will be crowned. Good luck Courtney!
