James Kenney from "The X Factor 2013" is one of top 16 contestants in Season 3 of the FOX reality singing competition series. He is a 36-year-old apartment manager from Portland, Oregon. He sang ""Summertime" by Ella Fitzgerald for his audition. The judges gave him four yeses.

James Kenney made it through to boot camp and is competing in the over 25s category under the mentorship of judge Kelly Rowland. James then sang "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers for the four-chair challenge, and Kelly selected him to be in the top 4 over 25s.

Kenney previously was one of the top 32 contestants in the first season of the series. Back then, he felt exceptionally happy that he didn't have to do any of his five jobs during his run on the show. His jobs included managing an apartment building and waiting tables at two different restaurants, one of which he was also the staff accountant for. That year, he made it through boot camp and competed in the over 30 category under the mentorship of judge Nicole Scherzinger. He was cut though before the live shows.

Kenney started singing and writing songs when he was just 11 years old.
