He might be only 15 years of age, but young singer Jai Waetford handles the glare of the ‘X Factor’ spotlight with incredible professionalism last year on his way to placing third in the TV talent competition behind Taylor Henderson and eventual winner Dami Im.
He subsequently released his top 30 self-titled EP, made up of studio versions of his performances from the show, as well as his top ten single ‘Your Eyes’.
Though it’s been almost five months since the end of ‘The X Factor’, the hope will be that enough of Jai’s fans from the show will have stuck with him throughout that time and will catapult his just-released new music towards the upper reaches of the chart. He’s not doing too badly thus far; the EP just outside the top ten on iTunes as of this morning.
‘Get To Know You’ is precisely the right song for him at this stage of his life. It’s bright, fun, a little cheeky and doesn’t force him to grow up too much. We don’t know how much of an input Jai had into the creation of the song, but the very fact that he’s got a co-writing credit on it at just 15 years of age has to prove that the boy’s got talent.
