He lost his best friend and when he goes on TV and sings about it, even Simon can’t hold back the tears

Nobody knew what to expect from Josh, a car mechanic who lives with his mom.

When it was time for Josh to choose a song, he picked one that had a special meaning for him — Labrinths’ “Jealous.” If you don’t know the song, it’s about being jealous when your ex has moved on to somebody new. The chorus ends:

“It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way
You’re happy without me”

But the way Josh interprets the lyrics is what makes his performance so moving. He puts a completely different spin on what he’s jealous of. Josh says about the friend he lost, “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.”

Share Josh’s moving performance with anyone who’s lost a friend, family member, or any other loved ones. It’s a powerful tribute to those around us that we’ve lost.
