Hello.
Hello. How are you?
I'm good. How are you?
I'm all right. Thank you.
Are you the last auditionee tonight?
I am the last one today.
Okay, been a long day, right?
Yeah, It has been a long day but I'm ready.
You know, but this -if you ever watch the X Factor before- it often goes... It's the end of a long day and our last contestant is silently waiting in the wings [yeah] and you know what happens then?
Yeah, it either goes very good or very bad.
Yeah, one of the two.
So tell me about you.
So I'm 21. I'm from Billingham and Teeside. [Yep] I'm a car mechanic
[yeah], and then obviously I sing a little bit as well.
And you live on your own?
I live with my mom.
Okay
Just me and my mom.
Oh I love that you say "Mom" like me.
Yeah, she's my rock, so.....
What are you gonna sing?
I'm gonna sing "Jealous" by Labyrinth.
And tell me why you've chosen that song.
It means a lot to me for a different reason, I think, to how labyrinth wrote it.
Which is?
Um, I lost my best friend a couple years ago and I kind of interpret the lyrics in a completely different way.

I lost my best friend two years ago. He was only 18 at the time and we were really really close. We did everything together.
We got a call saying we had to go to the hospital cuz he wasn't gonna last the day. And I know that was... it's tough on Josh.
Sorry.
The lyrics kind of say, I'm jealous that you're happy without me. And I kind of see it in the sense that I'm jealous that he's now happy in heaven. That he's moved on to a better place and that I can't still be with him.
Well, best of Luck Josh.
Thank you.
Come on, son. Come on.

I'm jealous of the rain
That falls upon your skin
It's closer than my hands have been
Oh, I'm jealous of the rain

'Cause I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive

But I always thought you'd come back
Tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say
I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

I wished you the best of
All this world could give
And I told you when you left me
There's nothing to forgive
But I always thought you'd come back,
Tell me all you found was
Heartbreak and misery
It's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without me

And it's hard for me to say, I'm jealous of the way
You're happy without...
You're happy without me.

Ooooh!
That was amazing.

Amm...
Do you know what, Josh? honestly... wow
I was... That was the most captivated I've been in all the auditions so far.
