Jermain Jackman was "nervous as hell" when he performed on 'The Voice' on Saturday (21.03.15).
The 20-year-old star returned to the same stage on which he won the competition last year but admitted he had to visit the toilet on several occasions before his performance because he was suffering from anxiety.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I suffer from nerves really badly, even on 'The Voice' on Saturday I was nervous as hell. If you don't mind me saying I was s****ing it!
"I had to go to the toilet so many times beforehand. I was very nervous. I had to make sure I remembered my steps, as regards the dancing, and didn't want to fall off the stage, cough, cough Madonna, and had to make sure I remembered the camera points in time.
"There was a lot to remember but I really enjoyed it."
Jermain - whose self-titled debut album was released yesterday (23.03.15) - admits he still gets "star-struck" when he meets big-name stars, including his own 'The Voice' mentor will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas star's fellow coach Sir Tom Jones.
He added: "Tom Jones is very humble, I bumped into him while I was rehearsing for 'The Voice' on Saturday and he was like, 'What are you up to? Are you OK?'
"People were trying to whisk him away but he wanted to talk to me. We were talking for about five to 10 minutes and he was just so humble and it was great to be in front of a legend and have that conversation with him.
"I still even get star-struck with will. I start getting all jiggerdy when we're talking."
