We’ve reached the final round of American IdolHollywood Week, and let’s just say the process has been a doozy! Grueling rehearsals, clashing personalities, and mounting illnesses have all taken their toll on the contestants — not to mention the possibility of their dreams coming crashing down around them.
That said, some of the hopefuls seem more than ready to compete for the semi-finals, including 16-year-old Jordan Brisbane. Despite his young age, Jordan’s clearly got the confidence to back up his skills. When we first met him in Atlanta auditions, he was open about the fact that he believes he can “shut American Idol down.”
Taking the stage for his final solo of Hollywood, Jordan belts out “Halo” by Beyonce. Though his youth and inexperience are apparent in his performance, there’s no denying that the kid’s got raw talent.
“The thing about being 16 is that you haven’t had a lot of nos yet,” says Keith, while delivering Jordan’s final judgement. “To get through audition cities, and Hollywood, and the group rounds... you’ve been able to keep making it. It’s been yes, yes, yes. Well... today’s another yes!”
And with that, Jordan has made it through to the Top 30!
