Jordan Pruitt Was ‘The One That Got Away’ from the Guys on ‘The Voice’
Is it just us or are they flying through the blind auditions on ‘The Voice‘ tonight (Sept. 24)? The night’s wrapping up, so we know we’re bound to see some talent coming our way. Next on the list of “yeses” was Jordan Pruitt, a former Disney star who once toured with the Cheetah Girls, Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens, and had two songs on the Billboard charts.
Pruitt decided to leave the Disney record label that signed her when she was 14 so she could perform more mature music. So did she make a smart move for her career?
That’d be a yes! The 21-year-old who named Christina Aguilera as a major influence was able to get the singer to turn around in her chair during her performance of Katy Perry‘s ‘The One That Got Away.’ “I have been waiting for you Jordan,” said Aguilera. “I liked your performance so much, you were really energetic. I really loved your falsetto parts … they were really crisp.”
It was a bit suspect, considering, before the audition even began Aguilera said, “Come on, give me a good one,” which obviously solidified her position as coach for the young Pruitt. But so be it. Luckily for Aguilera, she was the only coach to turn her chair around.
