He is currently in the Mark Jermin Stage School on Saturdays[4],in Swansea. He was featured in a BBC Wales documentary series called Starstruck where cameras followed children of the stage school for six months.[3][5] Early appearances He played the character Troy (Jason's neighbour) in the children's television series Grandpa In My Pocket.[6] [7] He has also acted in the Torchwood episode "Greeks Bearing Gifts" playing Danny - the child of a crazed gun-wielding father[8] and took part in an episode of the medical drama series Casualty playing Christy Skinner, a patient with incurable hiccups.[3] Jafargholi has also toured on stage as a young Michael Jackson in Thriller – Live.[9] [10] Minor work[9] includes UK touring productions of Macbeth (character - Son of Macduff), The King and I and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (choir). He appears uncredited in Mine All Mine, A Way of Life and a short film called Day at the Beach. Minor TV appearances[9] include The Frank Skinner Show, Nickelodeon UK and ITV Wales News in which he was involved in the celebration to switch on the Christmas lights in Swansea city centre in front of 30,000 people.[11] Jafargholi has also taken part in advertisements for Delta Air Lines, Debenhams and DFS.[12] A planned Walkers Crisps advert with ex-footballer Gary Lineker was cancelled.[3]. Britain's Got Talent Jafargholi took part in Britain's Got Talent, series 3, episode 2. His first audition song was a cover of the Amy Winehouse version of The Zutons song, "Valerie". Simon Cowell ended the song after two lines and remarked: "You got this really wrong."[3] Unusually, Cowell requested that Jafargholi sing another song, as he felt the first song did not suit Jafargholi. After a moment of hesitation, Jafargholi rallied and sang Smokey Robinson's "Who's Lovin' You", most famously covered by the Jackson 5. This performance was highly credited by the audience and the judges, earning a standing ovation. Jafargholi's previous experience has led to criticism by some fans of Britain's Got Talent as they believe the competition should be open to amateurs only. In response, a spokesman for the show said: "Britain's Got Talent is open to everyone whether they are a professional or an amateur. What Shaheen has done in the past has no bearing on his role on Britain's Got Talent."[11] As a result of his appearance in the talent contest, Jafargholi was signed to present a one-hour show on his local radio station Bay Radio, broadcast director Andy Griffiths, said: "Shaheen will take centre stage in our bank holiday schedule. He will present it himself, picking his favourite songs, talking about his experiences on the show and offering advice to other kids on how they can succeed."[13] For the semi-final Jafargholi chose "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from the musical Dreamgirls. When the judges were about to choose the second place between Jafargholi and dance troupe MD Showgroup, Simon Cowell chose MD Showgroup, but Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan selected Jafargholi. During the final on 30 May 2009, Jafargholi performed "Who's Lovin' You", the song which he had sung during his audition, and received a standing ovation from the audience. He did not rank among the top three acts in the final, but finished in 7th place. Post Talent Jafargholi sang "I'll Be There" at the 2009 MOBO Awards in September, during the ceremony's tribute to Jackson. A month later, he flew to Chicago to tape an episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show performing "Who's Lovin' You", which aired on 14 October. He later performed "Lean On Me" and "Who's Lovin' You" at the BBC Children in Need Gala in Cardiff and the BBC Switch Live event at the Hammersmith Apollo in November 2009, as well as The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he performed "I'll Be There", that aired a month later. On 29 September 2010, Jafargholi performed at the "Welcome to Wales" concert for the Ryder Cup [14] Michael Jackson memorial After performing on the Britain's Got Talent tour, Jafargholi sang a musical tribute of "Who's Lovin' You" on stage at the Los Angeles Staples Center, at the 7 July 2009 globally televised funeral memorial service for the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson. He had been originally invited to perform with Jackson in his This Is It series of London concerts. Jafargholi's performance was preceded by the eulogy from the song's writer, Smokey Robinson. Following Jafargholi's tribute, Larry King leaned forward and asked Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, "Who is that"? Gordy, who, according to King, was moved by the performance, reportedly replied, "I have no cotton pickin' idea who that is, but if I were [still] in the business, I would sign him tomorrow."[15] Debut album In May 2010, it was reported that Jafargholi had signed a record deal with Island Records UK, with his debut album due for release in November.[16] He will also star in his own online reality show named "The Real Shaheen", a fly-on-the-wall documentary on Jafargholi's career over the past year. The show will air its first episode on 19 July 2010. As well as recording in London, Jafargholi flew to New York City and Atlanta in July/August 2010. In September 2010, Jafargholi announced details for his debut album and single. A double A-side single of "Last Train Home", written by Paul O'Duffy and Matthew Protheroe and produced by Paul O'Duffyand "Hip Teens" (also produced by O'Duffy) will be released on November 22, 2010. In November, it was announced that Jafargholi's single and album's release date is being delayed to March 21, 2011 due to huge international interest and some exciting overseas opportunities. A press release describes "Last Train Home" as an "original string-soaked ballad with a nod to an era gone by", while "Hip Teens" is a cover of soul group Frank Popp's 2007 hit "Hip Teens (Don't Wear Blue Jeans)". On September 30, 2010 it was revealed Shaheen's album would be called "When I Come of Age"'. Jafargholi's album is said to be a mixture of original material and rare '60s soul covers. Jafargholi has collaborated with top US producers Jerry Wonda and Igloo & TC (best known for their work with Whitney Houston, Black Eyed Peas and Backstreet Boys) and UK producers Paul O'Duffy, Jimmy Hogarth and Martin Terefe for the album, which is due for release on March 21, 2011.
