LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Cee Lo Green had some big help from a little performer on Monday’s “The Voice” final, when Jordan Jackson took the stage with the voice coach and finalist Nicholas David.
Fifteen-year-old Jordan hit the stage, dressed like Cee Lo, and danced up a storm alongside the coach and finalist Nicholas David during a performance of “Play That Funky Music.”
On Tuesday, Jordan – affectionately dubbed “MiLo” (Mini Cee Lo) – stopped by Access Hollywood Live and chatted with Billy Bush and guest co-host Kate Walsh about how he was discovered.
“I met his manager at a stadium and he was like, ‘You look like Cee Lo!’ and [then said,] ‘Let me take a picture of you and send it to Cee Lo,’ and then he was like,‘Cee Lo wants you to come to LA,’” Jordan explained.
The Atlanta native, who had never been to Los Angeles, said the chance encounter with Cee Lo’s manager happened just last week, but he was ready to perform on TV.
“I wasn’t nervous,” he said of the performance.
So what does Jordan hope to do with newfound fame?
“I like to dance. I would like to be a dancer,” he added.
On Tuesday night, “The Voice” will crown its Season 3 winner.
