Josh Krajcik is one inspirational Chiver (28 Photos)

Just a few short weeks ago, Josh Krajcik was slinging burritos in Columbus, Ohio. Most people who visited the burrito joint where Josh worked would never guess that Josh has an amazing vocal gift. The 30 year-old Midwesterner had always dreamed of sharing his soulful voice with the world. To that end, his awesome mother drove him across the country to audition for The X-Factor. As you'll see in the video below, Josh crushed the audition. Then last week, Josh was named to the Final 11 contestants competing for the life-changing $5 Million dollar prize.

When he arrived in Los Angeles, Josh contacted me. He simply wanted to let me know that theCHIVE has helped keep him calm through all the insanity. I posted the photo below in the DAR on Monday and Josh also wanted me to personally thank the Chivers for all their support in the comments, as well as the LOL's.

Josh is the ultimate underdog and he's also one of the most genuine people I've met. And tonight he's going to take the stage on The X-Factor to attempt to bring himself one step closer to his dream. I know a lot of Chivers are fans of The X-Factor, and many of us prefer to watch Top Gear on BBC America (b/c it's awesome). But tonight one of our own is going out to perform and the Chivers can help affect the outcome.

The X Factor starts tonight at 8/7c on Fox. You can vote Toll-free and Verizon Text message. You can even vote online at TheXFactorUSA.

Let's show our support Josh, he's an inspiration and the world is a better place with him entertaining us in it. Makes me proud to be a Chiver. Good luck tonight, Josh!

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out Josh’s amazing audition below.

    I just spent the last 45 minutes watching the recaps of Josh's time on the X-Factor. This guy is tremendous. The voice, the style and personality (the every-guy) just draws you in. You can't help but like the guy. His talent goes without saying. Even if he wasn't a part of theChive world, he would still get my vote. It's like he is the neighbor down the street that you look forward to seeing and talking to. You go Josh. Chive On.

    If you think this is good, check out his rendition of 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. It makes me cry every time I listen to it.

    Go Josh!! I'll be voting for you for the rest of the season.

    In a world gone mad i'll drink the happy Kool Aid anytime. Thanks, Chive. Hell, I realize it's TV. I work in the industry. But that was the biggest smile I had today. That means something.
