'The Voice' winner Jermain Jackman wants Kylie Minogue to continue as a coach on the show but claims it's "down to her and her decision"
'The Voice' winner Jermain Jackman wants Kylie Minogue to continue as a coach on the show.
The 19-year-old singer, from London, who triumphed on the show on Saturday night (05.04.14), beating acts Sally Barker, Christina Marie and Jamie Johnson, would like to see her on another series of the talent show.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I like Kylie. She is a fantastic coach. But it comes down to her and her decision whether she wants to stay or not."
The soulful singer and Labour party activist, who was coached by will.i.am on the BBC One talent show, is trying to persuade the Black Eyed Peas star to give him one of his new futuristic mobile phone watches, which he debuted on Alan Carr's chat show.
Jermain said: "I want one of those futuristic watches. I can remember in rehearsals he was flicking his watch and I was like, 'What's that?', he was like, 'Just my phone'. He made a call on it, I was like, 'Oh my goodness, can I have one of them?' I think it's still in the post."
Jermain is now planning his debut album and hopes to have a successful music career after landing a recording contract with Universal.
And despite people getting him confused with 'X Factor' star Jermaine Douglas and Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine Jackson, he insists he isn't about to change his name.
He said: "I have never thought about changing my name, I get mistaken for Jermaine Jackson and Jahmene Douglas, but I don't want to change it. If it had an 'e' at the end I would maybe have called my album just 'Jermaine', but I like it how it is."
