James Hughes from Glasgow, Hit our screens this summer appearing on The X Factor getting through to
Nicole Scherzinger judges houses.
I met up with James to talk about X Factor, Up Coming Gigs, Matt Terry and Honey G!
Scott McGlynn: We seen you get to Nicole Scherzinger’s judges houses, Tell me about you X-Factor experience?
James Hughes: I loved the the whole X Factor experience. Its unforgettable, there are ups and downs and its a tough!
I feel you have to be emotionally prepared for The X Factor or else it will slowly brake you. I’m happy I auditioned for The X Factor and I’m happy I’ve seen what the show can do to peoples lives.
SM: I honestly loved your audition and six chair challenge song choice “Tina Turner – Proud Mary” Your a fan of the classic i noticed, Did you grow up listening to the old divas / classics?
JH: I don’t think your much of a performer if you didn’t listen to old diva classics. The soul and passion in that music tells its own story and is nothing like the “MUSIC” we hear today.
SM: Do you think you will audition again next year (2017) ?
JH: I’ve been changing my mind so much when asked this question. I would go back if I was guaranteed to make it to the live shows, if not then i wouldn’t go back!
SM: Who are you loving on the show and why?
JH: There’s only one person left on the show that I like and its Matt Terry! I didn’t think Matt would be able to handle live shows but he’s proven me wrong and is smashing it every week. Apart from Matt I don’t really see anyone on the same level.
SM: I’ve seen on your Twitter your not a fan of Honey G can you tell me why? What was she like behind the scenes?
JH: I’ve been pretty harsh on Honey G, She’s done well to get where she has got but she has no talent and doesn’t deserve a place in that competition!
That’s what Britain’s Got Talents is for, joke acts.
SM: Being on the XF gives you a platform, Will we be seeing you performing anywhere soon?
JH: I have lots of things planned and I’m really excited about them! I’m going to be performing in a lot of different placed and I can’t wait to tell everyone what I have planned!
SM: Do you ever suffer from nerves? If you do how do you prepare yourself?
JH: I don’t suffer from nerves, I’m a very confident individual.
Everyone gets nervous including me but I think I control it well. I just go into my own little world and do what I do best which is perform.
SM: Can you tell me your first single you bought?
JH: I think the first single I bought was “Love on Top by Beyoncé” I’ve bought so many!
SM: Who are you loving in the charts right now?
JH: I’m not really loving anyone in the charts at the moment, I don’t really think their’s any soulful songs with meaning so I’m not really interested with any current music.
