Courtney beat runners up Sign Along With Us and Steve Royale to the win the show on Saturday.
Courtenay has been a huge favourite with judges and viewers after he got a golden buzzer from the show anchors Ant and Dec in his first audition which got the audience including the show founder, Simeon Cowell, in tears.
He is also the first golden buzzer act to win the show.
Courtenay sang about being with our friends, standing on our doorsteps “with pride in our chests” to clap for the NHS, before ending his stellar performance by singing the poignant lines: “It won’t be long before these masks are gone, we’ll be living life again to the maximum. And we’ll remember people like Sir Captain Tom.
“And in years our kids will be reminiscing, not about the big stuff that they’ve been missing but the every day they got play with dad and mum.
“And we’ll remember that we were strong when McDonald’s was closed for so very long. And Britain’s talent will be that we all carry on!”
Telling Jon he “took his moment,” Alesha Dixon praised Ant and Dec on a “genius Golden Buzzer.”
