Jordan got to meet all the judges and says he was “always surprised when Kelly said ‘Hi Jordan’ – I thought ‘how does she know my name?”
“Kelly, Gary and Tulisa have been in bands and Louis has managed them, so their advice was worth listening to
“Tulisa was one of the most amazing women I’ve ever met. She’s really down to earth. She hasn’t changed for anyone. She was really hands-on with you and gave you praise when you did something good.”
Nu Vibe continued to the final live stages in London but were kicked off after two rounds.
Jordan says: “I was sad to leave the competition but I was sadder to leave the group and my friends. They become your family because you live with them.
“Packing my suitcase in the house had to be the worst experience.”
Jordan will be playing a series of gigs with Nu Vibe before he returns to Huddersfield New College.
For a young man he has a very mature outlook on life, adding: “If anything comes of my music that’s great but you have to look further down the line.
“You might earn a lot money for one year but what happens after that?”
And of course Jordan, whose uncle Anthony Farrell played for Huddersfield, Leeds and other top flight rugby teams in the 1990s, will be playing for the Giants academy again.
But Jordan isn’t sure what he’d do if he had to choose between professional rugby and professional singing.
He jokes: “I’d be a rugby player but I’d sing at the match before every game!”
