Jérémy Amelin (born July 1, 1986) is a French recording artist and entertainer. Born in Montargis, France and raised in Montcresson, France. Amelin was the finalist of French music TV show "Star Academy 5" - French version of American Idol broadcast on French TV channel TF1.[1]

Biography[edit]

Jérémy Amelin was born on July 1, 1986 and was the finalist of French music TV show "Star Academy 5" - French version of American Idol broadcast on French TV channel TF1.[1] He performed live during 16 primetime shows on TF1 watched by over 8.7 million viewers each week and over 11.4 million viewers on its season finale.[2]

Amelin released six singles[3][4] — including his debut single "A Contre Sens", ranked 13th on the French billboard charts.[5] He completed a nationwide tour of 115 concerts in France's biggest arenas such as the Olympia, the Congress Palace, Zeniths, the Dix-Heures Theater, and also performed twice on the Champs-Élysées at the Queen Club (Paris, France) on March 9, 2008 and June 24, 2009.[6]

Amelin also created his own clothing line called "Elektrode",[7] photographed by Fred Goudon - French photographer and author of the Dieux du Stade rugbymen calendars, while the behind the scenes were filmed and broadcast on Fashion TV.[8]

In late 2009, X-Cite Records announced that Amelin was back in the studio to start recording his debut album "Blaster".

A 30-second snippet of his single "Oh, Oh ! (feat. Angelika)" premiered on December 16, 2009.[9] The single was released worldwide on January 25, 2010.[10]

In August 2010, Amelin revealed that he recorded two singles for a 2011-release.[11] He later confirmed "Imma Bitch" as a promotional single — which premiered online on December 17, 2010.[12]

X-Cite Records announced on April 20, 2011 that Amelin teamed up with 90210 TV star Jessica Lowndes to release a featuring version of his single "Undone" — which premiered online on April 29, 2011 and was released worldwide on May 23, 2011.[13]

On May 13, 2011 Amelin confirmed the release date of his debut album "Blaster" — produced by James Rendon and Kayden Boche — during a TV interview given to Public Magazine.[14]

"Blaster" was originally scheduled to be released on October 24, 2011,[15] but X-Cite Records cancelled the album release.

During a video interview for French TV channel M6 in 2012, Amelin confirmed the upcoming release of a new single titled "Surrender" — which was later cancelled.

As of May 8, 2015, multiple singles are no longer available from digital download stores and streaming platforms worldwide — including "Fantasize", "What More", "Oh, Oh ! (feat. Angelika)", "Imma Bitch", "Undone" (Solo Version), and "Undone (feat. Jessica Lowndes)".

All rights previously granted to X-Cite Records for these releases were officially revoked on September 8, 2015, after a judge ordered the liquidation and termination of the Amelin-owned record company,[16] due to non-payment of royalties owed to 90210 TV star Jessica Lowndes, featured singer Angelika Vee, producers, songwriters, and remixers who collaborated on these singles.
