‘America’s Got Talent’s Courtney Hadwin Signs With Talent Show Legend
Courtney Hadwin was one of America’s Got Talent Season 13’s breakout stars. Even though she didn’t end up winning the million-dollar prize as she was widely expected to, she’s done pretty well for herself since her season ended back in September. She recently announced her participation in the upcoming America’s Got Talent: The Champions, and now she has some even bigger news!
A couple of months ago, Courtney revealed she’d met with Simon Cowell after AGT. She didn’t go into details of what they discussed, but many fans started speculating he might sign her for some sort of record deal. Yesterday, Courtney was finally able to announce that yes, she has signed to Simon’s label, SYCO Entertainment!
So excited to finally say that I have signed a record deal with @syco & @aristarecords thank you so much this wouldn’t be possible without all your support #dreamsdocometrue now let’s make music pic.twitter.com/DCAL1qzzde

While details of what her contract entails are unknown, this is a huge step in Courtney’s career. Even though it was fellow judge Howie Mandel who hit the Golden Buzzer for her and got the bulk of the credit for her popularity, it was obvious Simon had also taken a liking to her from early on in the season. Courtney being signed to SYCO is an especially huge deal because Simon hasn’t been nearly as involved in the post-show careers of his own Golden Buzzer picks, and none of them have been signed to the label. Clearly he sees real star potential in Courtney, which is a very big deal.
It’s also worth noting the last AGT contestant to sign with SYCO – Season 11 winner Grace VanderWaal – immediately saw her career skyrocket. She’s recorded a bunch of new music, gone on to perform in huge venues all over the world, and is going to star in Disney’s Stargirl next year. Could Courtney potentially tap into the acting world someday?
We don’t know what Courtney’s next move will be, but we’re very excited to follow her growing career! What would you like to see Courtney do next? Tell us bellow!
