'X Factor' Finalist Josh Krajcik: Multiple Record Deals On The Table

With the other two final ‘The X Factor’ contestants signed to record labels, what’s happening with Josh Krajcik’s deal?

The X Factor‘s second place finalist Josh Krajcik won us over with his Joe Crocker-esque sound and heartfelt performances, so it’s seemed bizarre we haven’t heard news that the 31-year-old singer signed to a record label yet. However, an insider close to Josh tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively what’s really going on with the talented artist’s future.

“Josh is taking his time to get the best possible deal and it might not be with Epic Records [which is where Astro, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene signed],” the source says, explaining that Columbia Records, RCA Records and even Simon Cowell‘s SyCo Music have all been in discussions with Josh.

“He’s so versatile, Josh has actually had more options than Chris and Astro, who everyone knew would sign with L.A. Reid regardless,” the insider says.

Throughout the last week, Josh has been in Los Angeles taking meetings and we’re told he’ll sign a deal within the next month or two.

Please put a cd out soon Josh, I hope you consider including your performance of ” At Last “. I can’t get enough of that soulful sound in your voice and I’m getting tired of pulling it up on the computer!

Shirley D. from Ohio I think the people got it wrong, Josh should have won and as far as I am concerned he did win.
I loved every performance he did when he did that Christmas show I was glued to the tv (please put out a Christmas album)
Waiting for your albums to come out hope it is soon (I’ll buy every one) keep up the great work

I am so looking forward to the day I can purchase Josh Krajcik’s first album. I agree with those folks that think he should have won. I think these shows should find original vocals, and this is why Josh should be right u there with the greats! Roll on his first UK tour!

I have watched all of the 2011 USA X Factor over and over, and I’m a 77 year old white male. The first few times it was only to watch & hear Josh. I then became curious as to how Melanie could have won. I don’t know how Chris Rene beat Rachel Crow for 3rd but, I can now see how Melanie could beat Josh. I’m sure the totals were not that far apart. Any woman who believes in abortion only needs to watch Rachel Crow’s tapes from start to finish; they will become prolife. Melanie and Josh are both lucky that Rachel was 13 and not 20 years old. I love that little girl and her adoptive parents. I’m sure Rachel already has her own bathroom: What a winner she is!
