X Factor 2012: Louis Walsh LOVES Jahmene Douglas but not Cher Lloyd or Christopher Maloney
Louis Walsh has admitted that other than his own X Factor contestants, his favourite act on the show this year is the lovely Jahmene Douglas.
The 21 year old hopeful has won the hearts of the nation with his incredible voice and his wonderful story of overcoming adversity to follow your dream and it seems that Louis has been just as inspired as us by the former shelf stacker.
The former Westlife boss praised Jahmene and compared him to a number of his favourite legendary singers, saying:
“Besides my own acts, Jahmene has been one of my favourite ever performers over the years. He is a class act. He’s got soul. He’s Marvin Gaye and Al Green rolled into one.”
Jahmene won rave reviews from the panel on Saturday night’s show, after he moved himself to tears during his performance of ‘Say A Little Prayer.’
Nicole Scherzinger has admitted that she was a little choked up after his performance too and has been helping Douglas boost the profile of a campaign his mum is taking part in, to raise funds for victims of domestic violence.
Meanwhile, although Louis loves Jahmene, he doesn’t have the same depth of feeling for all this year’s contestants and admitted that he hasn’t been blown away by Christopher Maloney yet.
The Irish star damaged the reputation of the 34 year old singer recently, when he claimed that he was the biggest backstage diva of the bunch. He doesn’t think that he’s very current either and said:
“He is what he is. He cannot be what he’s not. He’s a great cabaret singer. Christopher is an old fashioned entertainer.”
However, Chris wasn’t the only one that failed to win high praise from Louis and when asked what other contestants he hasn’t warmed to over the years, he mentioned Steve Brookstein, but added that he didn’t really take to Cher Lloyd either. Walsh said:
“I wasn’t crazy about Cher Lloyd. She had an attitude but she has turned it around and been really successful since leaving the show. Fair play to her!”
Is Jahmene your X Factor favourite? Do you think louis is being fair about Cher and Chris? Leave your comments below….
