Watch our interview with the R&B star.
Ne-Yo has told us that he chose Rylan as one of the X Factor finalists as “not all music is about how well somebody sings”
The Grammy Award winning superstar explained:
“Some music is just about having fun…Rylan is the kind of artist where u go to the concert and you know that you’re gonna have a ball.”
Ne-Yo joined Nicole Scherzinger at Judges Houses and told us that although he hadn’t heard anyone but the Boys, he felt that James Arthur stood a good chance of winning.
“My absolute standout is James…there’s something about him that makes you feel anything that he is saying”
The Let me Love You singer also spoke about his new album, wanting to win as many Grammys as Stevie Wonder, an embarrassing moment involving a microphone stand and working with Rihanna, whose next album, he says will feature ‘strong urban stuff’ and ‘strong pop stuff’.
