But it would be Jordan’s role in 2016’s Grease: Live that would change everything. The TV network Fox staged and broadcasted the musical event. And Jordan played the role of Doody, who, familiarly, was an aspiring musician.
After Grease: Live aired, Jordan’s performance – which included a live rendition of “Those Magic Changes” – became the musical’s break-out. Cosmopolitan dubbed him a heartthrob, which he found “sweet,” he told the magazine.
Jordan also told Cosmopolitan that he had no idea what Grease: Live would do for his career. He said, “I didn’t really expect [it]. You can’t really prepare yourself. I feel like last night was a Super Bowl moment – and I’m looking forward to the next one.”
