The ‘Talent’ From Norway to the USA:
Angelina Jordan was about one and a half years old when she first heard Whitney Houston’s “I’ll Always Love You” on YouTube. She used to listen to that song continuously and tried to imitate it, and that’s how her parents discovered her talent.
After that, she honed her singing skills by observing singers like Diana Washington, Frank Sinatra, and Billie Holiday, which ultimately strengthened her passion for singing.
In 2014, when Angelina was seven years old, she participated in “Norske Talenter” (Norway’s Got Talent), a talent hunt show of Norway. In the audition round, she had amazed the judges and the audience sitting out there by singing Billie Holiday’s version of the “Gloomy Sunday.”
Later, she won the show, became a star in the country, and got famous in other parts of the world. She then featured in various renowned media outlets like TIME, CNN, People’s magazines, etc. She has also performed for US-based TV shows, like The View and Little Big Shots.
After winning Norway’s Got Talent at the age of 8, Angelina participated in America’s Got Talent. In her first audition at the show, she stunned the AGT judges with the “Bohemian Rhapsody” cover.
After her performance, she also got a standing ovation from the judges and audience. Angelina’s mother and sister were also sitting out there. Lastly, Angelina won Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer. She later thanked Heidi for giving her the golden buzzer. However, she couldn’t reach the top 5 of the reality show.
Why Angelina Performs Barefoot?
Have you ever noticed that ‘why’ Angelina always performs barefoot at any stage? If not, then please do watch her videos. The reason, as it turns out, is rooted in a powerful and inspiring moment from her childhood.
When Angelina was just six years old, she was living with her family in the Middle East. One day, she met a young girl who was working as a street vendor. The girl was enamored with Angelina’s shoes, and in a generous gesture, she gave her shoes to the girl.
In that moment, the little vendor shared her dream of becoming a doctor, but expressed doubts about her ability to achieve it. So, the six-year old Angelina asked her to never lose hope. In respose the little said she would always pray for Angelina.
This encounter left a lasting impression on Angelina, and in honor of the young girl who inspired her, she decided to perform barefoot on stage. To her, it serves as a reminder of that powerful moment of encouragement and a symbol of her commitment to following her dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem.
After the powerful encounter with the young street vendor, Angelina was deeply inspired to tell the story of that moment and how it has shaped her life. She wrote a book titled “Mellom to Hjerter,” which means “Between Two Hearts” and was illustrated by her grandmother Zamani.
At just nine years old, Angelina published her book, making her the youngest published author in Norway.

Happy 17th Birthday, Angelina! I am ANXIOUSLY awaiting the release of your first professional album as you graduate from high school and are free to express your musical art and begin your singing career…..or, will you be going to HARVARD like all the sweatshirts you’ve been wearing say on them?
What has her private life gotto do with anybody. It’s hers and hers alone and nobodies business so please don’t poke your nose into to something which dosen’t belong to you or anybody else. If you can’t do that get a life or jump into a lake!
She is heaven sent and all we should do is just enjoy her heavenly voice and journey. Nothing more and nothing less!

David Foster is 5’10” without shoes. Angelina is taller (and probably without shoes) than he is.
If these height estimates keep growing it won’t be long and she’ll be getting cast for the lead jin “Attack of the 50 ft Woman, part 2”.
Although it is human nature to be inquisitive about other people, I do find it offensive to publicly express personal opinions about the relationship between the parents of a young person. These “rumours”, for they are nothing else, began to appear in comments on YouTube when Angelina was about nine. I find it despicable that now, seven years later, people are still writing as if they are facts. Angelina and her family have never commented upon the matter, and they certainly have no obligation to do so. Let their private lives stay private.
One last comment. Would all of you who have commented upon this matter like your private life plastered over the internet for everyone to see?
I don’t care about her personal business.She might reveal it in due course.I just think she is the best artist on this planet and a very beautiful human being!
Otkada sam otkrila Agelinu
Jordan, njezin glas ,njezino pjevanje , i sve šta ona donosi ljudima oko sebe , osjećam , da će sve u svijetu biti u redu.
Very rarely is it noted that Angelina’s maternal grandmother (Mery Zamani) was
a child prodigy, as Angelina was. Grandma’s main forte as a child was artist and poet,
but I did read somewhere that she sang, at 4 years of age, on an Iranian Talent Show.
This would explain why she knew babies who were special (like she herself) could
absorb music & lyrics, as well as singing aloud, at a much earlier age than experts
believed to be possible. We know Mery loved jazz, and Angelina did state on The View,
when she was 8, that she began singing jazz at 1-1/2. Personally, I believe Mery was the
individual mostly responsible for Angelina developing singing skills so young.
Thank you for all the insights. 🙂
Have you ever heard the words, out of wedlock, married, and divorced? Think of them in that order.
Sorry, we can’t comment on her parents’ relationship status without knowing any facts (which we are lacking of for sure).
Grow up Jeffery, this 2021. Who gives a crap?
What does that info have to do with anything?Lol
You hateful person,
You texted this crap to be disparaging.
Lol- what religion do you judge people by?
What century do you think it i???? Lol
y speculation, don’t you think? Why would any decent person post anything here that they wouldn’t use as conversation in a first casual meeting with her and her team?
When was Angelina’s sister born?
She is talented, beautiful and adorable..❤
Really people ?? I read some of these comments. Why, why …. and all not so important.
Get over it. Maybe one day, she herself will reveal all. OK ?
Sheesh! Get a grip!
Who cares how tall she is . as for talent, beyond words. Absolutely . b.b.
It seems to me that her biological father is NOT Gerry Christian Slattman unlike her younger sister whose family name IS Slattman. It’s no big deal. But it also explains why her mother’s family plays the most important role in her existence. One hears absolutely nothing about either her real, i.e. biological, father or his family. Someday, the truth will out.
the “truth” is her business alone. fans sometimes think they have the right to know just too much.
Blah blah blah who cares gossipers. Angelina Jordan lifts people up when she sings and some people evidently have too heavy a weight on their soul to be lifted. So sad.
The Show, “Traveling With Mother “, Concentrates On Jordans Songs. Why?
Who Is Cast As “Mother” On The Show, “Traveling With Mother”?
Most times, artists, musicians, writers, movie stars etc, change their names completely or just the last name to have a unique name. That is why I think her name is Astar! Get it? A-Star!!!!! Astar!
Astar is her mother’s last name. Angelina’s name is Angelina Jordan Astar.
In sweden children use the fathers name if parents are married. If not they use mothers name… I kmow this since I an Swdesh…
Well maybe, but then why is her little sister named Juliette Slattman? And her mother went by Sara Slattman earlier, but then switched back to her maiden name Astar. It’s all very confusing. By the way, we know Astar is her maiden name because that’s the last name of Sara’s brother Michael, who is also Angelina’s manager.
Well, from pure logic of all written above the marriage was between Angelina’s and Juliette’s birth.
No one mentions why she doesn’t use her father’s last name of Slattman.
He is Swedish and all Swedish people I know do use their father’s name.
Angelina é bem reservada quanto sua vida pessoal. Será que Slattman é o pai biológico dela? por isso do nome dela ser diferente? Bom, de qualquer forma ela é incrível, em todos os anos que assisti AGT ela foi a melhor 🌟🌟
Ela tem Astar em seu sobrenome por parte da mãe. E sim, ela é a melhor.
A Angelina Jordan pode ter esse nome como nome artístico! Como é cristã colocou Jordan fazendo alusão ao Rio Jordão, vez que tem boas passagens de sua vida no oriente médio!
Qto ao pai, se ele é engenheiro de petróleo fica muitas vezes afastado nas plataformas de petróleo no mar! Talvez isso explique suas ausências em shows! Acho que a Angie é uma menina normal, com familia normal! O que a diferencia é a sua voz que é maravilhosa e com I’m timbre que parece não caber dentro dela! Ela canta magnificamente bem!!!!
With regards to her father, Slattman, whom i have not seen in her performances, are they living with him? Why Angies surname JORDAN/ASTAR, why not SLATTMAN? In all the success of Angie…her father is absent, why? Just curious..
Jordan is her middle name, and Astar is from her mother’s side. Why not Slattman? I think it’s her choice (or any other reason could be possible). And, yes, her father was present in some of her performances but, yeah, not in many of them.
Indeed, we can see her dad in the first video for Norway Got Talent “Gloomy Sunday”. He carries baby Juliette in his arms . Angelina is 6-1 at the moment. She has grown up a lot in the last few years. 5-4 is not a correct height anymore 🙂
I have also heard she’s six feet y’all.
A lot of sites have her height to be five ft. 4 inches. I would like to know her true height.
She looks so tall now.
Angelina Jordan is 5’10” tall.
Angelina Jordan why her last name Jordan her father‘s last name is Slattman, her mother’s last nam Astar, and her sister carries moms last name
Her full name is Angelina Jordan Astar.
Why “Jordan”? Where does it come from? Slattman + Astar – I don’t see “Jordan” here. Is it an artistic choice?
May be… or in honor of some related person perhaps.
Jordan is her second forename or middle name. In some videos you can see/hear how she is called “Jordan” by members of her family or friends instead of “Angelina”
She has been pictured with Barack Obama and is slightly taller than him. Barack Obama is listed as over 6 feet tall.
Yes -many many sources say she is definitely 6 feet tall
What are those sources?
here she is with Heidi Klum who is 5’9 and wearing heels. Angelina is barefoot. you do the math….
Ted Crews is 6’2″ shown at the intro to Jordan’s AGT appearance, juxtaposed with Jordan. Your math calculations may have a problem.
Correction, that was TERRY CREWS, Not Ted Crews.
Terry Crews, who sent Jordan on stage during AGT, is 6’2″. She doesn’t appear to be even close to 6′ in that juxtaposition.
She was 13 then
They are both wearing heels in this pic. Google it. I’d guess OP height of 5’10” is about right. But regardless, model looks and build along with (one of?) the best voice(s) on the planet? Dear God this girl is going places.
I think you’ll have to update Angelina’s height. She seems to be growing another inch every day lol.
When she hugged Heidi Klum on stage at AGT they appeared the same height. Heidi is 5’9″ and had 3 inch heels. Angelina was barefoot.
you are correct…. Angelina is approx 6’0 tall. She has it all…. a good family, good looks, height, compassion,,and most well known….TALENT. Best female vocalist of all time, to my ears anyways…
About her origins…
Mery Zamani is an Iranian poet and painter, from Iran, she is her grand mother
You said from her mother she is of Norwegian descent.
You said from her father he is of Swedish origin
Where does come from this Grand Ma then ?
Angelina’s hair (and her sister too) are beautiful and brown and very long at the age of 7 ! this comes from Middle East origins, what are they ?
You explain the story of the shoes…, she seems to have a big heart, we can see it in her eyes and feel it in her voice….
Ya, she has a big heart, and Mery is her maternal grandmother.
Yes, you are right!
The blood of her Iranian grandmother won without a doubt as Angelina looks like a Middle East girl.
The magical timbre of her voice is definitely unique with a slight oriental touch.
Complete freedom of self-expression and confidence is reminiscent of the fearlessness of gypsies. Magic girl!
However, her mother is also not at all like a Norwegian woman, her parents are Iranian / Japanese
Since Angelina bears her mother’s last name, it is possible that her Swedish dad is an adoptive father. Its just a suggestion.
Of course, all this is not so important, just wondering what people together created such magic as Angelina.
Her mother’s hair is bleeched as you can see in some pictures. It is darker than Angelina’s.
ANGELINA IS 6 FOOT NOT 5 FOOT
That little girl can’t be 6 foot tall yet?
At the time of the AGT show, she was 6 foot or very close to it. @ years later she is reported to be 6 ft. 1in.
She does not normally have too many people standing next to her in her videos so her stature is not evident or she is seated.

David Foster is 5’10” without shoes.
she is approx 6’0 tall without a doubt…
Thats right….: )
