THURROCK’S Jordan Gray aka Talldarkfriend failed to make it through to the next round of BBC1’s The Voice.
A contestant gets through if one of the judges turns their chair around on the Saturday evening prime-time show.
But neither Will-i-am, Boy George, Paloma Faith or Ricky Wilson felt moved by Jordan’s version of Bob Dylan’s "Just Like A Woman".
However afterwards all four were starting to have deep reservations. All four judges went on social media to express their doubts but also their admiration for a stunning singer.
Paloma Faith said: "I’m welling up. @Talldarkfriend you move me. What a treasure. Such a special and valuable human being. Waiting for a simple twist of fate xx"
The Voice does have a wild card entry system at the end of the first round and there is fevered speculation that Jordan could be the lucky but deserved recipient of the card.
Here is hoping.
