Leon Jackson updated fans on his blog at MySpace on Tuesday (October 14) after performing his new single ‘Don’t Call This Love’ on ‘The X Factor’, a year after winning the reality singing competition. Jackson tells readers:
I don’t even know how to put in words how I was feeling that night!
When I arrived at the studios, nerves of excitement immediately kicked in and I was so overwhelmed to be there again.
My mum and friends all headed down to watch the performance which was amazing to see them their and showing their support, it means the world to me!
Before my performance I was backstage getting ready and watching the show from my Winnebago. It was surreal to think I was going to be on that stage an hour later. I also met with the bebo competition winners who sent a video to me explaining why they want to be on the X Factor, they were really nice!
When I went on stage, it was truly unbelievable! I see the four judges sitting there and it just brought back all the memories from last year! But this time I was back to perform a song of my own and show what i have achieved in the year. I was a bit worried because my throat kept drying out and I was constantly drinking honey and lemon before the performance it was a bit frustrating but luckily it held through
