X Factor 2012: Jahmene Douglas through to bootcamp with 'At Last'

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

21-year-old Jahmene Douglas gave 'the best audition ever' on The X Factor tonight.

The Asda worker from Swindon shocked the panel with his huge voice after showing a very timid personality.

Jahmene admitted before singing: "I’m a stay at home kind of guy, I don’t mingle very well"

His choice of song was rather cliche, audition favourite At Last by Etta James, but it seems that it was a choice well made.

"You know what, you are a revelation, you’ve got The X Factor, this is what we’re looking for. I think a star is born," gushed Louis, checking off yet more cliches in the series opener.

Tulisa raved: "You have not just The X Factor, not just raw talent but you have the shock factor. When you stepped on the stage you were like a timid little soul and you couldn’t express yourself, but you started expressing yourself the minute you started singing and it was freaking amazing!"

Nicole added: "You are an amazing vocalist, we need more singers like you, real singers. I just want to take you and just eat you up honey."

And Gary Barlow praised: "Mate, I got to tell you I’ve never seen a vocal performance like that before, that was off the scale. You completely nailed it today. That is how to do an audition."

With four yeses, Jahmene is sailing through to bootcamp and is sure to be one of the ones to beat in the next round.
