Kicking off The X Factor‘s Queen Week was our very own rock contestant, Jamie Archer, AKA Jamie Afro.
Not only was Jamie thrilled to be singing a Queen song this week, he got to meet two members of his all-time favourite band, Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen.
Jamie Afro took on a massive hit, one which will always be remembered as the track Freddie aced at Live Aid in 1985, Radio Ga Ga.
This should have been a brilliant week for Jamie, as it was rock week, but as he always tends to do, he underwhelmed slightly. We always have this expectation that he’ll be amazing, but he was wobbly on the vocals while he didn’t go far enough with the performing part.

Dannii Minogue: “Jamie you really know how to get the crowd going, and we saw that tonight. I absolutely love you. In some ways it was a brilliant song choice, because what you do is rock the crowd and that really worked. In other ways it didn’t show off your vocal ability to what i know you can do.”
Louis Walsh: “Yes it was a good song choice because its a crowd pleasing song, but we’re looking for somebody that’s going to sell a million records, I think you are totally out of your depth. I think you seeing Queen, seeing Freddie Mercury has totally exposed you as a very ordinary singer with a small voice and very big hair.”
Cheryl Cole: “He hasn’t got a small voice Louis. I think it’s always tough being first up and I think you kicked off the show well. I really like you Jamie, but I don’t like your hair.”
Simon Cowell: “Jamie I think for you, from what I know you want to achieve in your life, you’ve met the Queen guys, they’ve given you an endorsement, you got an incredible reaction from the crowd, You were brilliant tonight.”
