Sounds marvellous. Which song does he disagree with? Is it ET?

EDIT: Oh I see it's "Last Friday Night". That song is rubbish.

I'd refuse to sing it too. I've only ever liked Hot and Cold.

Jahmene's a non drinking man so why should he be forced to sing lyrics against his principles. I reckon they should just pick another song. When you consider how many zillions of choices they have - why pick that?

I was wondering why and just read the lyrics of that song.
Why on earth did they choose it? I wouldn't want to sing it either.

Bit insensitive when one considers that alcohol may have played a part in his troubled past with his violent father.

The video for that song is terrible too. It's about this geeky girl who is magically transformed into this amazing popular girl for just one night (Last Friday Night presumably) and afterwards she just ends up back as this loser. It's quease-making really.

Good for him - why would he want to sing a song glorifying something which has had such a bad effect on his family life.

I expect they picked it on purpose so he'd decline it, so they can get a story out of it.

Sometimes you have to sing songs that have stories that you are not connected with in real life, to refuse to sing a song that has a story about something you dont approve of, is a little diva-ish IMO.OK he has had a bad past, but if he limits himself to just singing about things he approves of, then he wont get very far in the business, its damn tough out there.

I cant stand this whiney little gobshite he needs to get over himself. Just because you sing a song doesnt mean you agree with absolutely everything that it says, if someone sang man down by rihanna would they agree with murder? Ridiculous.

How selfish is he, now the other contestants have to learn a whole new song because of him and his stupid "morals"

Rihanna is an autonomous artist and fully believes in what she spouts about. This situation is not the same as an actor hired to play a role in a movie about a serial killer. This show is meant to be people representing themselves to the public to show what kind of artist they wish to be in the future. He has every right to have high morals.

Speaking/singing words out of your own mouth to the whole country that you don't agree with is totally wrong.

I know, when you get a response like that you know the poster has underlying 'issues'.

Nothing wrong with a little wine with a meal (The Last Supper stylee) but British yob culture with men coming home to beat the cr*p out of their wives is a whole other ball game.

I'm sure Jahmene makes whatever choices sit well with his own conscience in any given situation.

What's the term where you take an argument to a ridiculous length in order to validate it.

Straw man argument? something like that?

Chow mein is a bit of a wet fart but his squiggly vocals are lovely to hear, my dog howls everytime he's on so that's special for me
