Christina Aguilera Picks Fellow Disney Star Jordan Pruitt On 'The Voice'
Even though Jordan Pruitt, 21, has already released two albums through Hollywood Records — No Ordinary Girl in 2007, followed by Permission to Fly in 2008 — she's still after her big break. Pruitt, a former Disney star who got her start touring with the likes of Vanessa Hudgens, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, the Cheetah Girls and High School Musical, had a connection with Christina Aguilera, 31, based on their respective Disney backgrounds, when she auditioned for season three of NBC's The Voice on Monday night, which Aguilera judges.
Pruitt, who is ready to shed the childlike image with which so many Disney stars contend when they try to launch their adult careers, blew fellow Disney star Aguilera away when she belted out Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" during her blind audition.
Aguilera's reaction? That Pruitt is the pop singer she's been waiting to add to her team. Disney stars unite! — Pruitt is now part of Team Xtina.
