X Factor contestant cracking under the pressure

X Factor contestant Jahmene Douglas suffered a  break down on last night's show and needed medical attention because he was so anxious about his performance. 

After the judges were told Jahmene Douglas was with medics Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh decided to go back stage to give him a pep talk in an attempt to instil some confidence in him.

Jahmene said: 'Today there’s a lot of pressure on me because yesterday I let myself down a lot, didn’t impress the judges at all. Can’t afford to let the same thing happen today. In this two minutes on stage you can either lose it or do your best, that’s it. One chance.' And the nerves quickly took their toll when Jahmene told producers he was feeling dizzy and weak.

Despite his fears, after singing Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow the crowd went wild.

Although the judges agree on his singing ability they question whether he has the strength of character to see out the show.

While the judges has their reservations over Jahmene they decided to give him a chance and put him through to the next round.

Umm - just wondering if my source got this right.  Surely he sang  Etta James' At Last...? And that was on 18th August.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
