Some Controversy

Although Courtney was very popular there was a little bit of controversy. Apparently Courtney had performed in other contests in the past and this was not revealed during her appearance on America’s Got Talent. Some felt it should have been as Courtney was being portrayed as a shy little girl. The bottom line is Courtney is who she is and when she performs it brings the best of her out. So whether she performed before should not be a factor.
