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.
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. 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.
Amelin released six singles — including his debut single "A Contre Sens", ranked 13th on the French billboard charts. 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.
Amelin also created his own clothing line called "Elektrode", 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.
In late 2009, X-Cite Records announced that Amelin was back in the studio to start recording his debut album "Blaster".
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.
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, 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.
