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.

    Just finished watching X-Factor here in New Zealand. Another great performance from Josh.

    Keep calm and Chive on Josh , , , we'll be watching you in the finals.

    Never written a comment to a web site in my life but the support of Josh made me do it. The guy is amazing and this is coming from an almost middle-aged guy, living in Newport Beach with his wife and kid. We all can't wait for him to sing every night; he killed it again tonight.

    Josh and that 7 year old rapper were un-freaking-believable tonight.

    I love that stupid ass look on the girls face at 2:22, as if to say "this fat slob is going to suck". And then he goes and makes you look like a total bitch-whore. Great job Josh, you have my vote man.

    my classmate's mother makes $84 every hour on the internet. She has been fired for 10 months but last month her check was $8514 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read about it on this site

  • JohnSavolaine

    great stuff. Someone mentioned Josh covering Otis Redding tunes, which would be killin. Maybe some Bill Withers, too….

    Hey Josh, when you get that recording contract, come back to Columbus and use our great musicians here to do the sessions! I've got you covered on drums….!

  • MarkInNC

    WOW! I just took a break at work to watch Josh's video and it was incredible! I haven't watched the show, but I will now be watching and pulling for him. I hope one day when things calm down he'll read through all of these comments and if he does, all I can say is… Well done sir… well done indeed.

    #7 FIND HER! And while you're at it Chive, make her a chivette! 🙂 She just radiates an aura of "beautiful"

  • Eder St Cool
