Swindon boy Jahmene Douglas has battled with his nerves throughout the competition, but the 22-year-old supermarket worker is determined to put his wobbles to one side to succeed on X Factor.
Jahmeme caught the judges’ eye from the very start, ever since singing those first notes to Etta James’ At Last at the auditions, right through to his version of Will You Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles at Bootcamp.
He then wowed Nicole with a stunning rendition of Titanium by David Guetta at Judges’ Houses, winning one of three places in the Boys category, alongside Rylan Clark and James Arthur.
A true soul king, Jahmene will be hoping to impress in this genre; and with plenty of experience singing in a gospel choir we’re sure the judges and audience will love what he’s got to offer. Of course he'll need to tackle pop, rock and all other manner of songs during his time on the show too - and we can't wait to see his attempts!
Jahmene admits he suffers from bad nerves, but says he’s got a strategy in mind to overcome them.
“In the Live Shows you just have to focus on your journey and if I can keep that in mind, I'll just sing. The judge that scares me most is myself, no one's as hard on me as I am,” he revealed.
And mentor Nicole is also on hand to give Jahmene plenty of help. She said: “He’s got an unbelievable voice…he needs a lot of support and love and I am definitely ready to give that to him.”
We can’t wait to see what else Jahmene has up his sleeve for his Live Show performances!
