“It was just amazing,” Jordan said about receiving the buzzer. “I cried immediately.”
In a video posted after her Golden Buzzer, Jordan revealed why she performs barefoot. “When I was around 6 years old, I see this little girl around my age. I gave my shoes to her because she had scars on her feet, and it was really cold. So, whenever I’m on the stage I’m always reminded about all the children who don’t have any parents, clothes and shoes. She’s always in my heart.”
In her package before performing, Jordan said she’s always wanted to sing for Cowell—and impress him. Safe to say she did just that.
“This was an amazing performance,” Cowell told her.
