Hadwin had been among the favourites to win the talent competition show after judge Howie Mandel, 62, used his Golden Buzzer during auditions to advance her in the competition.
She performed with fellow English rockers The Struts on Wednesday during the live results show from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
Hadwin held her own while joining in on the group’s first single Could Have Been Me as she sang along with frontman Luke Spiller.
She then unleashed her powerful vocals while joining the group in a duet of Take Another Little Piece Of My Heart.
The winner: Lim, shown performing during the finale on Wednesday, will headline four shows in early November at Paris Las Vegas
Hadwin was pitted against fellow singer and father-of-six Michael Ketterer, 40, for the last spot in the final five.
Ketterer advanced based on viewer voting leaving host Tyra Banks, 44, to console Hadwin.
It was Hadwin, however, who made the roster of finalists who will join Lim in Las Vegas for four shows November 2 to November 4.
