After losing his best friend, his tribute moved famous judge Simon to tears
In one of the most moving auditions I’ve ever had the chance to watch, Josh Daniel performs “Jealous” and moves not just Simon Cowell, but everyone in the room to tears.
Josh is only 21 years old, but he lost his best friend two years ago. He chose to perform “Jealous” by Labrinth, but explains that he gives a completely different meaning to the lyrics, different from that given by the group.
Josh explains that they mean his friend is in heaven, and that Josh is jealous that he can’t be there with him because he misses him so much.
Simon Cowell recently lost his mother, so there is no doubt that this hearing affected him to the point that he was unable to speak, overcome by emotion.
