Courtney Hadwin was an immediate standout on this season of America's Got Talent, with her soulful voice winning her a golden buzzer and an automatic spot in the live rounds. This singing competition isn't her first rodeo, and fans have flocked to Twitter in disappointment after discovering the 14-year-old also competed on the U.K.'s The Voice Kids.

Last year, she made the top six on The Voice Kids. Her grandfather defended her previous experience, noting to the Daily Mail that Hadwin is ready for success in the United States. “We always believed she would do well in the U.S.A. We knew they would get it in a way that the U.K. didn’t. We knew she would go down a storm over there.”
