Josiah Out! Did You See It Coming?


The 18-year-old, who lives in his car, had the perfect storyline — and voice — to make it in Hollywood. “This is probably the most important day of my life, Josiah Leming said before facing the judges. “I think they’re going to put me through.”

But after all the build up and time spent on him during the Atlanta audition episode and during Hollywood week, the judges cut him from the Top 24. “It was a very bumpy time for you in Hollywood,” Randy Jackson told him. “Dude, I hate to say it but this time you’re not going to make it. It’s a no, man.”

He was stunned. And so were we! While many of you found him a little annoying, others really like him. And that’s the type of contestant that is fun to watch. They also tend to do well on the show because they motivate on both sides. In short, they’re good for the competition.

Tell us: Were you shocked Josiah didn’t make the Top 24?
