Yo do you remember this kid...?
That my friends, is James Graham -- back when he was a contestant on The X Factor UK Season 11. A lot of you may also remember him as the lead singer of UK's boyband Stereo Kicks...and left to pursue his dream of being a solo performer.
Can you spot the young James Graham?
Well I've been a fan of James since his first audition on The X Factor UK S11 -- with his powerful vocals and a falsetto that would put many female singers to shame...
So as to walk that path to a solo career, he joined The Four: Battle for Stardom S2, a singing-talent competition judged by Meghan Trainor and two highly respected music icons, Sean Combs aka P. Diddy & DJ Khalid...oh and hosted by Fergie!
Here's James' first performance on The Four S2, check it out:
...and after many, many, MANY challenges by other hopefuls, James Graham defeated his best friend rapper Sharaya J to go home as the WINNER of The Four S2!
Watch him receive his prize being presented to him by P. Diddy himself!
As a huge fan of James Graham, I'm super super excited about his win... but Sharaya J is not a rapper to go unnoticed so go check her out on YouTube as well :)
However, CONGRATULATIONS James Graham!
