XFactor 2012: Louis Walsh loves Jahmene Douglas (but don't get him started on Steve Brookstein)

Jahmene Douglas (X Factor 2012)

XFactor judge Louis Walsh has revealed Jahmene Douglas is his favourite act from this year's show.

In an interview with the official ITV1 website, Louis backed Nicole's act to win the show - but only after his own groups!

He said: "Besides my own acts, Jahmene has been one of my favourite ever performers over the years."

Louis, who has been on the show for nine years now, added: "He is a class act. He’s got soul. He’s Marvin Gaye and Al Green rolled into one."

However when it comes to the acts who he hasn't taken a shine to over the past nine series, Louis had a few names.

"My least favourite would have to be Steve Brookstein [winner of Series 1]," Louis revealed. "He’s nothing more than a pub singer. When he won the show, I thought: ‘Oh no! Why?’"

And he continued to tell the X Factor website: "I wasn’t crazy about Cher Lloyd. She had an attitude but she has turned it around and been really successful since leaving the show. Fair play to her!"

The latest results show follows on Sunday, which will feature performances from Fun. and Robbie Williams, as well as one more act being given the boot.
