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 7.3 million viewers each week and over 8.75 million viewers on its season finale.[2]

Amelin released five singles[3][4] — including his debut single A Contre Sens,[5][6] ranked 13th on the French billboard charts.[7] 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.[8]

Amelin also created his own clothing line called Elektrode,[9] 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.[10]

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 online on December 16, 2009.[11][12] The single was released worldwide on January 25, 2010.[13][14][15][16]

In August 2010, Amelin revealed that he recorded two singles for a 2011-release.[17] He later confirmed Imma Bitch as a promotional single — which premiered online on December 17, 2010.[18][19]

X-Cite Records announced on April 20, 2011 that Amelin teamed up with 90210 TV star Jessica Lowndes[20] to release a featuring version of his single Undone — which premiered online on May 6, 2011[21][22] and was released worldwide on May 23, 2011.[23][24][25]

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.[26]

Blaster was originally scheduled to be released on October 24, 2011,[27][28] but X-Cite Records cancelled the album release.[29]

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,[30] What More,[31] Oh, Oh ! (feat. Angelika),[14] and Undone (feat. Jessica Lowndes).[23]

After an extended break, he returned on stage to star as Captain Phoebus in the Luc Plamondon and Riccardo Cocciante musical Notre Dame de Paris — to celebrate its 10-year anniversary tour in Seoul, South Korea.[32]

From September 3, 2016 to July 9, 2017, Amelin is the lead performer in the cabaret musical Flamboyant at the Royal Palace in Kirrwiller, France.[33]
