Jahmene Douglas – Audition – The X Factor UK – Video

Jahmene Douglas auditions with “At Last” by Etta James on The X Factor UK.

You could tell he was nervous, and he got a bit screechy and off key at the end,  but he really grabbed the audience and the judges from the very first note.  I love this guy!

Jahmene works at Wal-Mart, but he has always dreamed of being a singer in spite of his battles with stage fright.  He seems like a really sweet and likable guy and he has a huge voice and really goes for it.

At times, I thought he was a little over the top, but I really like his voice and passion and I’m excited to see what else he can do!  He got a standing ovation from both the crowd and the judges.  Impressive!

Judges Comments:

Louis – “You are a revelation.” “This is what we are looking for.” “A Star is born.”

Tulisa – “You have not just the X-Factor, not just raw talent, but the shock factor.”   “It was bleeping amazing!”

Nicole – “I think you’re an amazing vocalist.”  “We need more singers like you, real singers.” “I just want to take you and eat you up honey!”

Gary – “I have never seen a vocal performance like that before.” “That was off the scale.” “You completely, completely nailed it today.”  “That is how to do an audition!”

He got four yeses of course.
