WATCH: Jessie J reacts to Nathan Trent’s submission
During a live stream on Sunday afternoon, Jessie reacted to several of the entries received, with Nathan’s submission being one of the first to be shown to the thirty year old. She compares Nathan’s vocals to Michael Buble and his look to Calvin Harris – which we’re sure he’ll be flattered by!

“I feel humbled and empowered”
Nathan responded to Jessie’s video earlier today on Twitter, describing it as the ultimate sign that he’s taking the right path in his career.
I saw this today. This is more than words can describe. I feel humbled and empowered at the same time. This is the ULTIMATE sign for me that this is the right path. Big thanks to Jessie J. #goals #dreambig #sing pic.twitter.com/zwmjyiGTTO
