Sep 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Last night’s episode of ‘The X Factor’ featured auditions which occurred in Chicago, Illinois, where thousands lined up in the cold rain of a place known as “The Windy City.” Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell, LA Reid, and Cheryl Cole all sat at the ready to judge each contestant as they came to fight for the largest prize in music and television history. It was a five million dollar recording contract form Sony.

Thirty year old Josh came with his mom from Columbus, Ohio to audition. He has been wanting to sing in front of Simon for ten years. He also writes songs. His mom says that if Simon could just hear him, he would ask where he has been. She encourages him to share his gift. When he stated that he would be singing, ‘At Last’, Simon frowned a bit and asked, “Really?” But Josh did just that.

By the second line, the audience was screaming, Simon was smiling, his mom was crying, and those listening had chills. Before he was finished, the audience was on it’s feet. He was amazing! Simon said that he didn’t think he could be surprised anymore, but when Josh started singing, it blew Simon away. LA said he was wayyyy too good. Cheryl told him that he killed it, and Paula said his voice and energy gets into your skin. Simon said, “Josh,” and then looked back at the audience, “Three thousand, three hundred, and thirty five yeses.”
