On last night’s episode of The X Factor, Josh Krajcik really surprised us. He came out to the stage, looking greasy and dirty and left it as an upcoming star.
As he took to the stage for his audition, we weren’t sure what to expect. Josh is a 30-year-old “burrito slinger” from Columbus, Ohio. He and his excited mother drove all the way to Chicago (a seven hour drive) for him to audition. As he told the judges he was going to sing Etta James’ At Last, Simon didn’t look amused whatsoever, asking him, “Really?!?”
Check out his amazing performance, below:
What an amazing performance! Simon said he never thought he could ever be surprised again, but Josh blew him away. Cheryl Cole said the performance was electric, while Paula Abdul called it a treat. L.A. Reid told him to give the slinging burritos job to somebody else. Paula thanked Josh’s mother for driving him to the auditions.
He was pushed through to the next round with four answers of YES from the judges. He definitely made his mother proud last night! What a great song choice and performance.
