Shaheen Jafargholi will be the main support for former X Factor winner Leona Lewis for her upcoming tour.

Shaheen was offered the slot after his performance of ‘Who’s Lovin’ You’ at Michael Jackson’s memorial concert in Los Angeles, The Sun reports.

A source said: “Simon Cowell is convinced Shaheen can be a global superstar.

“The platform given by Leona’s tour will raise his profile massively. It’s a hugely sought-after slot. Shaheen is over the moon to have been asked.”

Lewis is expected to tour her upcoming album for 14 months. The concerts are thought to have a Garden Of Eden theme and will be choreographed by the team behind Jackson’s cancelled ‘This Is It’ London residency.

Simon Cowell insists Britain’s Got Talent acts are a surprise

Piers Morgan has said that Britain’s Got Talent judges are not given any prior information about auditionees on the show.

During the last series, critics had suggested that some elements of the programme had been scripted or pre-planned, a claim denied by contestants and producers.

Morgan told The Futon Critic: “Simon Cowell, the creator of the Got Talent format, he’s absolutely adamant we should never have any warning from the producers about what is going to come on stage in terms of their ability because, you know, sometimes we might get told their name and that’s about it.

“What Simon believes and I think he’s absolutely right is that if you have prior warning that someone’s going to be great then you don’t act surprised. I mean, why would you, you know?”

He added: “If we knew Susan Boyle had a voice like an angel we wouldn’t have been pulling all those faces and being rather condescending towards her.

“We would have been thinking, well let’s give her a couple of seconds to sing and then we’ll all know she’s great.”
