There's no telling, but it certainly didn't sound complimentary, and from reactions to the quote on social media, people are implying he was talking about his former teammate.

Courtney, a student at The Academy at Shotton Hall, in Peterlee, appeared nervous as she walked on stage for her audition in a packed auditorium. 

She was reassured by judge and former Spice Girl Mel B, who said: 'I know this is a big stage with lots of people here but you're here for a reason to go for it and good luck.'

As the music started, Courtney's nerves disappeared and she launched into a confident performance of Redding's 1968 hit.

'You were this shy little thing when you came out. Then you sing and you're like a lion. I mean, genuinely incredible.'

But it was comedian and actor Mandel who sealed her fate. The judge compared the 13-year-old to Janis Joplin, who won a record deal as a youngster at a festival.

Warriors Rejoice As The King Falls

  Warriors Rejoice As The King Falls As the final buzzer sounded, the Warriors rejoiced on enemy turf. They had, for the second time this series, blown out the Cleveland Cavaliers and more significantly, beaten LeBron James for the third time in four years. While 2016 represented a heroic effort from Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, JR Smith, the latest series saw LeBron isolated in his own greatness. Make no mistake – this was not, as many superficial analyses has it, a one man battle – Kevin Love played admirably well, putting up 19/11 in the series, while Larry Nance Jr and Rodney Hood showed sparks off the bench. Against a literal super team such as the Golden State Warriors, however, this is not enough. So let’s not point fingers at LeBron. With four all stars playing under the brilliant Steve Kerr, no team could realistically come close without multiple stars of their own. Take the Houston Rockets, who forced seven games against the Oakland team – alongside the (assumed) MVP, the Rockets possessed Chris Paul, Eric Gordon and Trevor Ariza. Compare this to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Outside of LeBron and Kevin Love, there was little in the way of all star calibre on the roster. Kyle Korver, who shot so well throughout the postseason, was shut down by constant switching and tight defence, and ended firing 6.25% from the field. The others, by plain fact, were plainly average.

'You are not from this era. You're from a whole different era,' he said. 

Each judge can only use the Golden Buzzer for one act, so the Canadian was clearly overwhelmed by the teenager's talent.

Courtney was joined on stage by her father, who hugged her as she wiped back tears. Mandel and presenter Tyra Banks later joined the singer on stage.  

Courntey later posted on Twitter: 'I didn't know what to expect when I auditioned for @AGT but the golden buzzer was more than I ever could have dreamed of. Thank you so much @howiemandel I am so happy and can't thank you enough xx' 

The 13-year-old will now appear before the judges on the live shows, where audiences will play a role in competing for a $1million prize.
