The X Factor 2012 winner James Arthur has told MTV.co.uk that he’s dead set on working with his mentor Nicole Scherzinger in the near future.
When asked whether he’d like to hook-up with the ex-Pussycat Dolls
star in the studio, the Impossible
singer said: “I would absolutely love to”, before adding: “In fact, she better
work with me!”
Having had a few days since his win on Sunday night (9th December) to reflect on his time on the talent series, James cited his performance of Adele’s Hometown Glory
as a true highlight, even if it did cause slight ‘conflict’ between certain production teams.
He beamed: “I’m so glad that they gave me creative control and allowed me to do what I wanted with the songs.
“They let me put dubstep out on Saturday night TV to Gladys in Grimsby. I appreciated that because I think there was a bit of a conflict between TV and the music team.”
James went on to say: “There’s a lot of highlights for me being involved in the X Factor, you know just working with people like Nicole and the whole X Factor team that have nurtured myself and the rest of the talent in the best possible way. It was a real pleasure to be part of the show.”
Speaking of Chezza, the 24-year old said: “Cheryl’s the nations sweetheart, everybody loves Cheryl. I can’t see it doing any harm."
However, he then insisted: “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the current line up.”
