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.
