Jay James

Jay James, the former military man, discovered his passion for music on sick leave from the Navy. His auditions had the Judges either up on their feet or reaching for the tissues. Jay left the competition in week six (Big Band). After he sang against Stevi in the Sing Off the Judges took the decision to Deadlock and it was revealed he got the least number of public votes.

Jay James - Empire State of Mind/New York New York medley

The first of the Overs to treat you to a medley and what a medley it was! Not many people would get away with mixing Alicia Keys and Frank Sinatra songs but Jay James seems to be able to do just about anything according to Simon.

Hmmm, not sure if Cheryl would agree with that. What will the Judges say tonight?
