Josh Krajcik Does Joe Cocker and the Beatles Proud on ‘X Factor’

Josh Krajcik

The Beatles‘ ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ is a a standard of modern pop music. However, the song is as equally remembered for Joe Cocker‘s version as it is for the Fab Four’s. Cocker has a definitive, know-it-as-soon-as-you-hear-it voice. His whisky-soaked rasp is distinct as DNA, so this was a risky song for our favorite burrito maker Josh Krajcik to perform on ‘X Factor.’ Or was it. In the few weeks we’ve gotten to know Krajcik, we’ve discovered that he has a know-it-as-soon-as-you-hear-it voice, too!

Krajcik sings from this place deep within his core and his tone is husky, so why would anyone doubt that he could pull this off with ease and poise? When Krajcik sings, it’s like a lifetime of emotion shoots out of his mouth and the result is nothing short of electrifying. Krajcik may not look the part of pop star, but he has rock ‘n’ roll coursing through those veins of his.

“It’s like chicken soup for the soul” is how Paula Abdul described the singer’s comforting voice. His mentor Nicole Scherzinger told him he is “so ready for a $5 million recording contract.”

Simon Cowell felt Krajcik’s rendition of the first half of the song was a little sluggish and that his mentor surrounds him with too many on-stage gimmicks. Again, any chance Cowell has to take a pot shot at Scherzinger, he does so. Yawn. Snooze. Zzz. It’s as fresh as day-old donuts at this point. Enough with the insulting banter, guys!
