Go Jahmene!

Jahmene and Nicole

Customers and colleagues were amazed to see X Factor judge Nicole Sherzinger and singer Jahmene Douglas at Asda this week!

Jahmene took Nicole to Asda Leyton in East London to show her the ropes as a pricing assistant – and she soon got the hang of things!

Mentor Nicole, kitted out in Asda uniform, practised scanning products in the aisles and even took a turn on the tannoy during her visit to rally support for Jahmene ahead of his performance this weekend.

Go Jahmene!

Our colleague Jahmene Douglas remains one of the favourites to win the 2012 X Factor crown after a storming performance in the second live show.

Jahmene, a process colleague at Asda Haydon in Swindon, put in a confident and assured performance of Amy Winehouse’s Tears Dry On Their Own.

It earned him some great comments from the judges, including Louis Walsh calling him one of his “favourite contestants ever on The X Factor.”

Jahmene will be back in action on Saturday when the theme is set to be ‘club classics’. Give us your suggestions for what Jahmene should sing below.

They’re backing him all the way and say his weekly appearances on the show have created a real buzz in store.

When a local TV camera crew visited the store this week colleagues showed their support by wearing “Go Jahmene” t-shirts and creating Jahmene masks.

Si Barrow, Chilled Section leader, says: “We all knew he could sing but we didn’t know just how good he was.”

Jahmene Douglas wowed his colleagues, friends and legions of fans with a knock-out performance of John Lennon’s Imagine to close the very first live show of 2012’s The X Factor.

The Asda Haydon colleague, who is currently taking a 12-month career break while he pursues his musical ambitions, got a great response and made it through to next week’s show.

Despite being warned not to ‘over sing’ by Gary Barlow, Jahmene’s perfomance went down well with colleagues and fans on Twitter and Facebook – a post on our Facebook page on Saturday night got a whopping 9,753 ‘likes’ and 1,134 comments!
