When Jordan Anthony was five years old, he begged his parents not to go to piano lessons.
Nine years later, aged 14, the Perth-based school boy is a grand-finalist on The Voice Australia, and he shows no signs of slowing down.
A day in the life of Jordan Anthony is unlike that of most Year 9 students around the nation.
Whilst his peers are studying for science tests, he is behind-the-scenes with Delta Goodrem, refining his performance skills and practising his Michael Buble-like vocals.

More than anything else though, Jordan says his time on The Voice has taught him important lessons in confidence.
After being bullied in primary school, the support Jordan’s received on the talent show has been invaluable.
“I started off the process being quite shy,” he told Mamamia.
“Being on the show my confidence has improved so much because there’s been such positive energy, positive vibes coming from everyone and it’s been a lot of positive things coming from the show. I think this show has definitely helped my self-esteem and my confidence within myself as well. I know that I can do it even though I might be young,” he added.
