X Factor 2012 live show 3: ‘Big Balls’ Jahmene Douglas weeps and wows with ‘Say A Little Prayer’ (VIDEO)
Jahmene Douglas has had a tough couple of days, with details of his personal life and upbringing leaking to the press day by day.
We were a little worried about how that would affect his performance tonight before the live show started, especially as it was club classics week, making it harder for him to channel any negative emotions into a meaningful performance.
One thing we were looking forward to though was Jahmene’s big entrance, as he informed Unreality TV that he would be walking down the steps once used by Whitney Houston on the ITV show.
The song wasn’t a Whitney one though and this evening Jahmene performed ‘Say A Little Prayer’ for the judges.
There was some sound problems at the beginning, which seemed to throw him a little at first. The 23 year old pulled it together though and as always he showed his brilliant vocal skill. His big note at the end was particularly impressive.
However, we don’t think this was the best song choice for him and Nicole needs to work a little harder on her tunes next week.
TULISA CONTOSTAVLOS: You are adorable, all I can say is how amazing you are. Something about you tells me that you’re whole life has been building up to this point. You are supposed to stand on that stage and you deserve it.
GARY BARLOW: Another stunning performance, your voice is something else. I don’t think you need to move round the stage, you look quite clumsy when you do. Just stand there and sing, your voice is incredible.
LOUIS WALSH: The little man with the big voice, at times you reminded me of Ray Charles. You are amazing.
NICOLE SCHERZINGER: What is real is real talent in real life. You are 22 and have survived so much. You have bigger balls than anyone I know. I love you and I am so proud of you. You are here for a great purpose.
Did you enjoy Jahmene’s performance tonight? Do you think he’s safe from elimination tomorrow? Leave your comments below….
