Here are three things to know about Courtney as you cheer her on through the live shows:

HOW SHE FELT WHEN THE JUDGES HIT THE GOLDEN BUZZER

“It just didn’t seem real, it felt like a dream! I’m just so excited now to get back on the stage and perform again.”

HOW SHE DEALS WITH STAGE FRIGHT

“I get really nervous before I go on stage, but I just drink a lot of water! But I know that even though I’m nervous, I always know I’ll be happy that I went on stage and did it.”

HER MUSICAL INSPIRATIONS

“So many . . .  Janis Joplin, James Brown, Etta James, Mick Jagger, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner! If I could perform with anyone . . .  it would be Janis Joplin.”
