Jahmene Douglas might have found himself in a spot of bother with X Factor bosses, after criticisms he made of the show a year ago have resurfaced.
Commenting on Youtube, the shy singer questioned the credibility of the contest, echoing Gary Barlow's concerns over 'joke acts' like Rylan Clark.
"X Factor's not about singing so much; you've seen what people get through to the live shows," said Jahmene.
"Compare it to American Idol... they sing. It's hard in a country that favours indie music, but this year I'll try harder, see where I end up."
Though Jahmene made the comments long before hitting this year's contest, they've remained on the site and are now coming back to cause some bother.
But what do you make of his thoughts? Does he have a point?
