    Jordan has always been a huge music fan. When he was a baby his Mom would play music and he was always surrounded by instruments, and even back then, he had a voice. As he got older, music stuck with him, and he fell in love with the guitar. He can clearly remember the day his father bought him his first guitar.

    That guitar and love of music led to a huge love for Elvis Presley - in fact - Jordan became obsessed with Elvis. He listened to Elvis, played Elvis, covered his walls with Elvis posters. He was just a huge fan, through and through.

    One night Jordan and his parents were watching their favorite show, The Voice, and just after the blind auditions, they made an announcement that now younger people could try out for a spot on The Voice.

    This was the Canadian edition of the NBC hit show, and they were holding pre-auditions right near where Jordan lived. Jordan got pumped up and excited and they went for it, he tried out. There were two rounds of pre-auditions that you had to make it through to get into the blinds, with all the judges - the Canadian counterparts to Adam Levine and Blake Shelton and whoever might be sitting in the third judge's chair.

    Jordan waited for his turn and then nailed the first audition. He got to move on to the second set, and if he made it through that round he would then go on to the televised blind auditions, on tv, in front of millions of viewers! The second auditions also went really well, and they sent everyone home and told them that they would be reaching out to the winners to tell them who was going to get a chance to move on to the Voice Blind Auditions.

    They didn't have to wait too long. One day they received an email saying CONGRATULATIONS! You're going to be on the show! He couldn't believe it, was so excited and only had a couple of months to get last minute practice, instruction, and counselling so he had the best possible chance of making it through the blind auditions, having a judge turn their chair, and then get to pick which team to go with - like Team Adam, Team Blake, Team Kelly, etc.

    Finally, after what felt like forever, the day of the blind auditions came. There were interviews to do (not Carson) and it was a little overwhelming. He was ready, but nervous. It was his turn to film all the sequences before he goes on stage to face the judges and live audience, and his heart was beating so hard and fast he felt like it was going to burst out of his chest. But then the stage doors opened and it was time to go make music and use his voice!

    He walked up the backstage steps and onto the main stage and there they were, three chairs, waiting for him to try to get them to turn around, and spotlights and cheering crowds. Before there was even a chance for him to worry and for his anxiety to grow, the band started counting down and Jordan got right into the groove.

    The song was Elvis Presley's "Trouble," and Jordan felt good about it, overall, but his nerves did get him a couple of times and his voice went off pitch. The coaches ended up NOT turning around. Other than a couple of little hiccups, the performance was really good, and it broke his heart that none of the judges chose him. They told him they had regret over it, that they probably should have turned their chairs. He was so upset but he had to face the judges, and the television cameras, and the audience, and finish what he started.

    His mouth dry, his heart pounding, he started panicking, but managed to stay up on stage, but, the minute they were done, he ran, cried a bit but tried not to show how devastated and broken he felt. This had been his dream, and he had made it so far, and it really hurt to have to go home feeling like a failure.

    Part of him DID recognize how much he'd accomplished, and he was still so young. Part of him was excited by it all. He couldn't tell if he had done something amazing, or just failed miserably. He was depressed for weeks, but finally, his guitar teacher and vocal teacher convinced him not to give up. That gave him the resolve he needed and he has never given up. He's in a new band called FALL, and things are going well.

                    This happens when people don't practice before, I mean not at their home, it's needed on many stages (Small stages), one can participate for school talent events, playing on public parks public free festivals, getting used to have a big audience, always catching the opportunity to participate so the nerves can calm down getting used to it and Then get into contests and t.v audiences. But yes we will start low and slow and it doesn't matter if you loose, the point is to learn your mistakes and try again.

                      Okay, so I know this boy. This story is real. I went to middle school with him- he is not a good singer. Very flat. He writes his own songs, which is cool, but its hard to listen to him because it sucks a lot.
