Jahmene is The X Factor’s supermarket singing sensation. The 22 year-old supermarket worker from Swindon wowed the Judges at his first audition in London with his rendition of Etta James, At Last.

At Bootcamp, Jahmene’s first performance didn’t go too well and ahead of his final performance he complained of feeling faint and dizzy but after a pep talk from Nicole and Louis he took to the stage and blew the Judges and the audience away once more with his version of Will You Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles.

At Judges Houses in Dubai, Jahmene pulled off the performance of a lifetime singing Titanium by David Guetta to make it into Nicole’s three acts going through to the Live Shows.

Jahmene is a self-confessed lover of soul and gospel music, regularly singing with the gospel choir at his local church and he is a big fan of the late Whitney Houston. Jahmene lives at home with mum, step-dad, two brothers and sister. He says he wants to ‘make his Mum proud’ by performing on The X Factor.
