The 21-year-old wowed with a mash up of Amy Winehouse’s Tears Don’t Dry On Their Own and Aint No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye.

Nicole Scherzinger said: “Baby, my sweet little babycakes, I was nervous because you didn’t connect with the song original and you came out in and you took!

“You were fresh and in your element, you were born to be on that stage.”

Louis Walsh said: “Jahmene, I loved the Amy song, you are what the show is about. So young, so shy. You are one of my favourite ever contestants.”

Gary Barlow said: “Jahmene, well done, what a way to kick off the show. Using your skills as a vocalists, I loved the outfit, I loved the motown favourite, strong!”

Tulisa said: “It’s all about the voice with you! The voice is amazing, I can’t fault you on any of your performances so far.”
