Ne-Yo said to Nicole: “It seemed like he was singing for his life.”
When Nicole discusses with James about taking him through to the next round or not, as one of her top 3 – Nicole tells James, aged 24, that she is worried he may not have what it takes for the next leg of the competition.
“I don’t know if you will be strong enough with the bright lights and if you can deal with the monster that the industry can be,” she says, adding she is unsure if the competition is for him.
Thankfully Nicole did choose James as one of her top 3 along with Jahmene Douglas and Rylan Clark.
