X Factor 2012: Jahmene Douglas in awe of mentor Nicole!

Jahmene Douglas

X Factor singing sensation Jahmene Douglas has admitted he's in awe of his mentor Nicole Scherzinger.

Speaking at a press conference at the X Factor studios yesterday, Jahmene admitted: "Half the time I’m just trying to get over how beautiful she is.

“She’s quite cool, she’s got a real, dry, English sense of humour.”

And Jahmene added: “If Nicole doesn’t like a song she’ll tell you, she wont lie to you.”

It seems that young Jahmene has made friends with all of the judges, a good tactic to avoid elimination if he's ever in the bottom two.

He explained: “I get on great with Tulisa, she’s just really down to earth and she gives good advice.”

“I didn’t think I’d get on with Gary Barlow, but he’s actually really nice, I’ve spoken to him a few times."

Jahmene continued: “All the judges take time to speak to all the acts, not just their own.

"They talk to us all, so that’s nice because it’s all about the music at the end of the day.”

This weekend will see the remaining contestants singing tracks with a love and heartbreak theme before the public vote once again, and one more act is eliminated on Sunday night's second results show.

Sunday's show will also feature performances from US country star Taylor Swift and former X Factor star Rebecca Ferguson.
