He Sings A Tribute To His Dead Friend. Nothing Could’ve Prepared The Jury For This.

When 21-year-old Josh Daniels hits the stage on Britain’s The X Factor, he is the final participant of the day and both the jury and the audience are pretty tired and ready to go home. Little do they know that Josh is about to perform a spectacular interpretation of English artist Labrinth’s hit “Jealous”. He sings the song as a tribute to his best friend, who recently passed away at only 18 years old. The song carries a whole new meaning for him since his friend’s death. And as soon as Josh starts to sing, it’s clear that he means every word. The jury’s reactions are some of the most emotional I’ve ever seen. Especially Simon Cowell, who for perhaps the first time is so moved by the performance, he literally cannot speak. It’s when I saw his reaction that I could no longer hold the tears back. What a moving, touching performance. And what a voice!
