Resurfaced footage of Courtney Hadwin’s America’s Got Talent audition in 2018 has left people stunned.

The songstress, then just 14, floored judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell with her powerful rendition of Otis Redding's 'Hard to Handle', and viewers are calling it the best AGT audition of all time. 

Courtney’s audition was recently shared on VVIP’s TikTok, and one social media user was quick to gush: “One of the best performances ever.”

Watch Courtney's audition below:


A second TikToker echoed: “One of the best auditions on AGT,” while a third wrote: “One of the greatest moments on TV.”

“Wow, amazing,” penned a fourth TikToker, with a fifth adding: “Incredible!”

While Courtney didn’t win that year’s AGT, she went on to sign a record deal with Simon’s music label Syco in December 2018 and a year later appeared as a contestant on America's Got Talent: The Champions.

While the world-famous talent show has spotlighted some phenomenal acts over the years, it’s also produced some slightly more bizarre ones.

Take Mr. Pants, for example. Mr. Pants (real name Ryan Dee) is a stand-up comic whose routine is based around the idea that he's a walking, talking pair of pants.

Striding onto the stage with confidence, Mr. Pants promised judges and the audience alike that he would ‘dazzle them with his stand-up comedy routine', and he didn’t disappoint.

Not only did Mr. Pants manage to impress the AGT judges, but he also tickled viewers of the show. Watch his performance below:


One commenter said the act was 'brilliant' and 'a lot funnier than I expected it to be', while others called Mr. Pants 'funny as hell' and said he delivered a 'truly one of a kind performance' while also being 'absolutely adorable'.

According to Meaww, Mr. Pants previously shot to fame by creating a giant poop sculpture which he strategically placed behind the 'Charging Bull' sculpture on Wall Street.

He's had to put his poop sculpture there a few times while applying to the New York City Parks Department for a permit which would let him legally display it at least one day a year.

Not everyone was a fan of the poop sculpture, with Bowling Green Association president Arthur Piccolo telling the New York Post it 'only encourages other a******s to do something inappropriate'.

Nevertheless, Mr. Pants is through to the next round of AGT, and we can’t wait to see what else he’s got under his belt. (Sorry).
