During the European night, news came from Australia that they have chosen Jordan Anthony to represent them in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Poland!
Jordan became known to the Australian public by breaking a record at The Voice for being the youngest contestant ever!
Judge Guy Sebastian, who we know for his top 5 finish as the first ever Australian Eurovision contestant, praised Jordan’s voice as being ”breathtaking”!
Jordan himself is a 14 years old guy from Perth, who has passionate for music for a long time, writing his first song at the age of 7!
He has been playing the piano ever since and has also been busking on the streets of his native Perth.
On the mentioned passion for music, Jordan says:
Music for me is the ultimate form of expression. When people listen to my songs, I want them to relate and, happy or sad, know that they are not alone
Hear and see Jordan introduce himself to us in the video below:
Paul Clarke, Director of Blink TV and Head of Delegation for Australia, is fully behind the election of Jordan Anthony and exclaims:
Jordan inspired us on The Voice, his character and his talent really resonated. This is the perfect opportunity to take his music to a much bigger international stage, where he will be representing Australia for the first time. Go Jordan!
