Who will win America’s Got Talent?

Courtney Hadwin and Shin Lim are currently leading in the America’s Got Talent betting odds, according to Gold Derby. Courtney is slightly ahead with 10/11 odds.

Shin is currently sitting at about 9/2 odds of winning.

Some viewers seem to believe that Courtney has an unfair advantage in the competition because of her prior experience. Before joining the cast of America’s Got Talent, Courtney performed as Young Cosette in Les Miserables in London.

She’s also appeared on The Voice Kids in the United Kingdom, on which she was mentored by Danny Jones of McFly. She made it to the final rounds of the competition, but didn’t win.

Twitter users have found the judges response to Courtney to be insincere. 

One wrote: ‘Stop having your judges fake react to acts they are already familiar with. Most people watching are already familiar with Riana and others are familiar with Courtney Hadwin and the judges certainly should know who they are but instead they act like they never heard of them!’
