John Adeleye

AGE: 30


OCCUPATION: Care home worker

PREVIOUS: Toured with Jamelia under the name J’Nay.  Won a MOBO award in 2003.

John is one of the more experienced contestants, having already released material and won a MOBO for Unsung Artist of the Year – although obviously none of this has been mentioned on the show….  He’s also close friends with one of JLS (one of them posted something about being his best friend on the official JLS Twitter account) who were finalists on The X Factor in 2008.  However, despite having as much (or possibly more) experience than say Katie Waissel/Katie V/Katie Vogel/Lola Fontaine he’s seems like such a nice, sweet guy that I barely care that he’s got a bit of an unfair advantage. He doesn’t seem like he’s got an interesting enough personality though to go far in the competition, so we predict he’ll be out in a few weeks.
