Jahmene Douglas made the second day of The X Factor 2012 bootcamp today, despite messing up his song.
Jahmene Douglas, Jae Walters and Craig Colley performed Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5 for the panel in the first stage of this weekend's bootcamp challenge.
Louis told the group: "Jahmene, it just didn’t work, what happened? It’s nothing like your first audition, can you tell me what went wrong?"
Jahmene replied: "I just really wasn’t confident with the song at all. There wasn’t much else I could do."
After the judges deliberated, Jae Walters went through to the next round whilst Craig Colley got sent home.
Gary then told Jahmene: "Jahmene we have been up and down the country and I’ve got to tell you, you were the best singer we have seen in the whole of the audition tour by far, miles… that was like listening to a totally different person today. Based on that today I would be sending you home right now, no question about it at all."
Delivering the good news, Tulisa added: "We want to give you another chance and we’re going to see you tomorrow."
However Louis warned: "Tomorrow I want to see and hear a different Jahmene. "
Backstage and Jahmene admitted he should have stood up for himself with the song choice.
He said: "Last night I was thinking I can’t make them sing Respect and I can’t make them do Next To Me. I should have stood up for myself, because then I would have sung something that the judges would have been impressed with but I’ve just come of feeling like I’ve let them down…for them to give me the chance again is just too much….I don’t cry….it’s just nice to be appreciated I guess."
