    He shouts too much! hes good though
    but he stole cover arrangements of “s*** and i know it” and “hometown glory” from youtube and said he created them.
    Oh well he will be forgotten about within 18 months anyway

      shouts ? We said JAMES not JAHMENE…

      He didn’t steal anything, he admitted to have sung Noah’s version and he thanked him for the inspiration. And Noah congratulated James on his performance. I mean, they always do covers, why would it be different with this? Plus, I don’t see why this is a bad thing. I hadn’t heard of Noah until James sang his version so it’s a good thing for him as well!

    He won ..but Rih stole the show.

    The music market is being OVER SATURATED by these talent show winners. When is enough, enough?

    This is the first year I actually don’t care who the winner is, I was bored this whole X Factor. The only reason I watched was because Gary Barlow kept me interested.

    Many male X factor Winners have got one path really, the path of the FLOPS. Just look at the past male X factor Winners Steve, Leon, Joe, Shayne and Matt, they’ve all flopped. Where are they now hmmmm??

    Anyway good luck to him.

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 9, 2012

      He’ll just sing old songs.. so no he wont

  7. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 9, 2012

    I think the cover he done, is way better then shontelle’s version.

    dont know why they gave Jahmene a 50 year old song though… what a joke!.

    • Mario December 9, 2012

      says the guy who fav is 22 or 23 but writes 12 yr old songs.

      • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! December 10, 2012

        last time I checked.. 12 year olds dont go through break ups…
        Im not sure whats thats go to do with my comment.. but okay

    • Oh Yeah!!! December 10, 2012

      u r crazy! Shontelle’s cover is untouchable!

  8. Oh Baby(B****** Will Deal) December 9, 2012

    noooooooo(but my other voice is yelling yessssssss) It’s so sad because i knew James regardless of a win or not was gonna be signed and sell music! I’m scared Jahmene(who’s my fav by a hair strand) won’t be marketable and people will forget all about him quick! He needed the push that came along with being the x-factor winner,as well as the perks and record deal. But goodluck Jahmene you cutiepie and i hope to hear you doing big things soon! BUT also James,congrats boo,your voice is quite unique and im sure you’ll go far (hopefully).

    • Madalina December 10, 2012

      I though exactly the other way around. I though Jahmene, once seeing himself the winner, would only be concerned with supporting his family and would forget about “making it”. I think this instability, this insecurity will help him much more, help not to be self satisfied, push him to go where he’s meant too. But well done both boys, they are both amazing, I hope they both go far, they deserve to!

      • Madalina December 10, 2012

        *he’s meant to

  9. Oh Yeah!!! December 9, 2012

    wrong person won! Sigh!

  10. MISHKA December 9, 2012

    Congrats to Nicole too, this is a huge comeback for her after the “disastuh” she caused on X Factor US.

  11. stony December 9, 2012

    his voice is just crap for me sorry but this season sucked

  12. Yea i said it December 9, 2012

    the real winner was RIHANNA!

  13. Who cares? December 9, 2012

    Jahmazing shamazeballs!

  14. mobwife: Easy, Breezy & Beautiful just like him December 10, 2012

    They both sound rather average in these clips but that Authur charcter doesn’t sound like every other male act out today. Unfortunately for Douglas he does.

  15. Jay Jay December 10, 2012

    He kinda looks like a Butch version of Adele.

    Another mediocre male winner from the X-Factor, he will go the way of Steve Brookstein and Matt Cardle – to name just two of the failed former winners. The guy can sing, some of the time (he hits bum notes too often for my taste), but has no personallity and certainly does not have the X-Factor. The best act this year (Ella) went out too early and all the vitriol Chris got was out of order, people were voting for him and he could sing better than the two finalists put together – the music he sings is a matter of taste (not mine, lol) but the guy easily had the best male voice this series. Ah well, I’m sure all three finalists plus a few of the others will get record contracts, seems to me that its better NOT to go with Syco as they have a habit of dropping acts very quickly if their first album doesn’t do that well. The X-Factor died a long time ago, its just the corpse hasn’t realised it yet ;o)

    • Madalina December 10, 2012

      Cynics. Cynics everywhere! I think he’ll go far, really far! He’s more talented and more special than anyone I’ve heard in the pop charts these past years! But I don’t get why I am arguing with you, you clearly don’t know music if you think Chris is better than James or Jahmene!
