Oriste Williams' plans for X Factor celebrations in Fulham Broadway Shopping Centre or Fulham Town Hall lie in tatters after JLS came agonisingly close to winning the show.
His band JLS were pipped to the top spot on the ITV show by diva Alexandra Burke, who will now record Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah as part of her prize. They won 41.66 per cent of the public vote.
Oriste, from Wandsworth Bridge Road, saw his boy band fall at the final hurdle after they dumped out fellow finalist Eoghan Quinn in third spot following a performance with super group Westlife.
JLS were watched by their family and friends from a party in central London, which was televised and broadcast as part of the final show. Among the party guests was Oriste's former headteacher Sister Hannah Dwyer of Larmenier and Sacred Heart Primary School, who was interviewed on the show.
Oriste's mum, Sonia, who has MS, also paid emotional tributes to her son's hard work during his journey on the reality TV show.
During the early part of X-Factor in September, JLS performed at the school in Hammersmith Road, Hammersmith. Oriste said: "It was a real honour. My school contributed a huge amount to who I am today."
Throughout JLS's battle for stardom, Oriste had consistently said how important his background is to him. One of his plans to give something back to the area he grew up in was with a huge victory party.
His but one thing is certain - Fulham has not heard the last of its young star.
