The 17-year-old South Carolina native didn’t secure the winning spot when she appeared on the inaugural season of the show in 2007, but she impressed judges with her cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing.’

Jordan later became a viral sensation with her YouTube covers of popular songs including B.o.B.’s ‘Nothing on You,’ and Jay-Z’s ‘Run This Town’ and caught the attention of executives at Stargate and Roc Nation. “I thought if they didn’t love me then they wouldn’t fly me all the way out to New York,” she said, after receiving the initial call from Stargate. “I knew I had a good chance.
