THE X Factor finalists going through to the live finals will include Newmarket stable lad Jamie Hamblett as part of boy band Union J.
The 24 year old appeared in Sunday night’s episode of the popular talent show where he was put through to live finals along with his bandmates, Josh Cuthbert, Jaymi Hensley and George Shelley.
An emotional Jamie was seen in tears after being told by judge Louis Walsh that the band had made it to the finals.
Speaking exclusively to the Journal last month, Jamie said: “Singing is something I’ve always wanted to do and I’m grateful that I’m doing something that I’ve always wanted to do.”
The episode saw judges Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos each select three finalists from the six acts they had taken to the judges’ houses stage of auditions.
