I don't know Mock, personally his voice is my favorite in the competition. I also really like it the way he carries himself. The way he talks, the way he quietly laughs after he talks. I guess I just relate to him and that's why I like him. Plus when he hits those big notes, they really echo nicely.

His laugh does my head in as it's so fake.

I totally agree. When he starts singing it's like he's in a trance and lost in the song. It's amazing. I love his laugh too.

PERHAPS YOU SHOULD READ THIS AND HAVE A BIT OF COMPASSION FOR THE BOY I think he's wonderful

Douglas and his brothers and sisters endured years of living in fear until things escalated dramatically when his mother, Mandy Wood, got a job at a local post office.

"I got a job and he said I'd never get one," she said. "That's what pushed him over the edge."

Wood explained that her partner flew into a jealous rage, imprisoned her in their bedroom for three days and tortured her.

"It was one of the worst nights ever," admitted Douglas. "I woke up thinking, 'Is she still alive?' He used a blowtorch to brand her, used knives on her, dragged her through the hallway naked by her hair. He threatened to kill all of us in front of her.

"When the police came I couldn't even recognise her face. I was used to seeing her being beaten and having bruises but this time she had hair missing, burn marks and her eyes were all puffed out, black and glazed over.

"I just hugged her. I couldn't say anything. I never did say anything in the house.

"The thing that stays with you is hearing your mother scream and not being able to do anything."
Their father was taken away and was eventually imprisoned for nine years for the attack on Wood, with another six-year term to serve concurrently for rape.

Before his sentencing, the family were terrified he would track them down and stayed in refuges, constantly adopting different pseudonyms.

"Once, the authorities even suggested we move to Australia but we didn't want him to have that much control," said Douglas.

Douglas's father sent threatening letters to the family throughout his incarceration and was later released after serving just five years of his sentence. Shortly afterwards, Jahmene's brother Daniel was found dead having committed suicide.

"I thought, 'What else can you throw at me?'" said Douglas. "Daniel had said it was like living in a box and we couldn't get out. His death switched me off.

Who are you to tell me that I don't have compassion? I do however think it's distasteful of Jahmene to think that he can use this sob story just to get through a week of The X Factor.

The apology is owed to you, not by you Mock. No need for the attitude abcd.

Thanks *Kate*, I just don't like going so nasty on a member that doesn't normally behave that way so I felt bad.

You were a bit hasty, but we all lose our tempers from time to time.

No, I agree with you completely, it's terrible what Jahmene has been through. You were a bit hasty calling a member a moron though.

Look up the definition of the word bully, I am not a bully and I would never subject anyone to the suffering that I had to put up with when I was bullied so I am very insulted at your accusation.

Also I could imagine that Jahmene would hold his own if someone did accuse him of using this sob story to get further on The X Factor.

How many acts play up to that image? behind the scenes I bet all of the contestants are much more confident than on screen.

He seems very shy to me, but i'm sure deep down he's stronger than we think.

Im not saying that he isn't shy, but when I see him on the show he looks like his about to have a mental breakdown.

Let's all relax and say that Jahmene is quite possibly the greatest man to ever come out of the X Factor. Excluding Joe McElderry of course.

I'm not surprised, considering what's going on in his personal life. But he seems to be coping well. I think he's genuine and i love his voice.
