X Factor 2012: Classy Jahmene Douglas won't become the new Frankie Cocozza!

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

X Factor hopeful Jahmene Douglas has said he won't succumb to the pressures of fame.

The 21-year-old wowed the panel on Saturday night with a performance of At Last by Etta James.

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!"

Speaking to the Daily Star today, Jahmene insisted he wouldn't dream of becoming the next Frankie Cocozza.

"I’m strong willed. I can’t stand clubbing, it’s repulsive. I’d rather go somewhere classy like a nice restaurant," he explained. "I won’t be distracted, I can handle things.

“I prayed before the audition, it calmed me down, and I will continue to pray."

He said: "It’s all overwhelming but I think I have the confidence to deal with it now.

“I’d like to get married one day. I don’t believe in sex before marriage or sex before love.

“It has to be right. It’s all about love at the end of the day.”

The ambitious youngster, who works in Asda, added his dream was to become a “singing Oprah Winfrey”.
