Losing the ‘The X Factor’ was just the beginning of Josh Krajcik’s promising music career. Sources tell us he’s working with Simon Cowell on new music and a guest performance on next season’s show!
Simon Cowell‘s The X Factor is coming back with new star-studded judges and fresh hopeful contestants, but also with a performance from the past. Sources close to the show say runner-up Josh Krajcik will be one of the guest performers on the upcoming season.
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.
Did the finalists have themselves a merry little Christmas, or did they go all out with a celebratory bash? Get the details here!
Anyone who watched the first season of The X Factor knows it’s been a stressful couple of months for winner Melanie Amaro, and runners-up Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene. That’s why HollywoodLife.com is happy to report that all three finalists “spent the Christmas holiday with family at their respective homes.”
Are you with me here? Have YOU ever gotten as deeply involved with ‘AI’ contestants as you did with X Factor’s Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik, Chris Rene and Rachel Crow?
I challenge American Idol to come up with a crop of “artists” as outstanding as the finalists on the first season of X Factor.
HollywoodLife.com got the scoop on Josh & Chris’ future straight from Simon himself!
Melanie Amaro may have won The X Factor‘s $5 million grand prize, but that doesn’t mean fellow finalists Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene will walk away from the competition empty handed. HollywoodLife.com caught up with head honcho Simon Cowell after the Dec. 22 finale, and he admitted he’s already eyeing both guys for record contracts.
I’m thrilled for Melanie Amaro, but will Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene fall off the map after losing on ‘The X Factor’?
Adam Lambert, Clay Aiken, Jennifer Hudson: it’s happened before on American Idol. The second and even third place (and lower) contestants end up outdoing the original winner — so will this happen with The X Factor‘s Chris Rene and Josh Krajcik?
After a finale to top all finales, the first ever USA ‘X Factor’ winner was announced. Are YOU happy with who we chose?
The X Factor finale started off on an exciting foot with the top 12 contestants singing Lady Gaga‘s “The Edge of Glory,” which was bittersweet seeing Rachel Crow and Astro, who were kicked off possibly too soon. Up next, we saw holidays tunes by the top three — Melanie Amaro, Josh Krajcik and Chris Rene — which were lovely, but ultimately, we wanted to see who was the winner of the $5 million recording contract!
All three ‘X Factor’ finalists deserve to have big singing careers and God willing, they will. But here’s why Josh Krajcik deserves THE $5 million contract!
Josh Krajcik is anything but gorgeous and he won’t be rolling out any dance party hits, BUT here’s why HE should win – you can listen to his big, powerful, raspy voice ALL day and ALL night long.
The final three botched their duets with celebrity superstars, but soared with their solos. Which one got YOUR vote?
We had a rocky start to tonight’s final The X Factor performances. The first songs, which were supposed to be exciting and touching duets with famous artists, were totally awkward, poorly executed messes — leaving us scratching our heads and feeling disappointed in the final three. However, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene all made up for their lackluster starts with INCREDIBLE second performances. In fact, I’m still sitting here with chills — completely conflicted about who should be deemed the $5 million winner.
Simon Cowell has revealed that Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene will each be paired with a superstar artist on the finale. Who will they be?
“This will be the greatest final ever!,” Simon Cowell swore, on Dec. 19th in an X Factor press conference. And part of what will make it an amazing finale is that “each of the three (finalists) will be performing with a superstar artist,” he revealed.
I think the three contestants in ‘The X Factor’ finals are the ones who deserve to be there, don’t you?
Congratulations, America! We finally did something right. How often do you watch reality competitions on TV and are completely devastated by who wins? This time around on The X Factor, I think we chose perfectly.
It’s been a fight to the finish! Are you happy with the final three singers on ‘The X Factor’?
After weeks of really intense eliminations on The X Factor, tonight’s semi-final cut didn’t seem too harsh to us. Of course it was sad to say goodbye to yet another contestant, but we’re ready for the finals next week!
There’s nothing Melanie Armaro can’t sing with passion and depth. She proved that on last night’s show, Dec. 15. While I’m personally rooting for Josh Krajcik to win — Melanie will be a Kelly Clarkson hit machine!
She’s got a soaring voice. A stunning, beautiful and God given voice that took the classic song “Feeling Good” to new heights in her second performance last night. And just reflect upon the fact that Melanie comes from a disadvantaged background and hasn’t had professional vocal training – she was born talented.
It’s down to the semi-finals and I think it’s pretty obvious who will be eliminated before the final three!
After last week’s emotional and shocking elimination, it seemed like there was a big weight lifted off everyone’s shoulders tonight on The X Factor. With all the kids eliminated, the adults came out to play — and I think Marcus Canty will be the one left behind tomorrow, as Chris Rene, Melanie Amaro and Josh Krajcik all brought their A-games.
I thought I had my favorites figured out, but now I think rapper/singer Chris Rene might be the dark horse of the competition!
What a night on The X Factor! After last week’s abysmal Michael Jackson night, the final five performers needed to redeem themselves, and they did just that. The first half of the show consisted of “dance hits,” which were hit and miss, but the second half was a plot twist — the singers had only 24 hours to pick a song of their choosing to perform the following night — and honestly, they all shined. Sadly, Rachel Crow didn’t thrill me as much as usual — I predict she’ll be in the bottom. However, Josh Krajcik, Melanie Amaro and Chris Rene are all strong contenders for first place, in my book.
