When Josh Daniel took the stage of X-Factor, no one knew what to expect from him.
He introduced himself as a mechanic who lived with his mother, but it was another part about his life that made the judges and everyone in the audience emotional.
Back in 2014, Josh lost his best friend. One day, he was called to the hospital to say his goodbye to the person who had always been by his side, through thick and thin. By the end of the day, his friend was gone forever.
Josh chose the song Jealous by Labrinth. For those of you who haven’t heard this song, it is about being jealous when your ex moves on with someone else.
The lyrics go, “It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way you’re happy without me.”
However, Josh changed the lyrics to fit his emotional state and the pain which came with his friend’s passing.
“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,” Josh sang.
These words he uttered triggered many tears at the audience and the judges. They even made Simon shed tears.
This performance is truly moving and it is an incredible tribute to a loved one who left this world way too early.
