Inspirational song week was already a really strong episode of “The X Factor,” but Josh Krajcik‘s ending performance on “Wild Horses” by the Rolling Stones sealed the deal. Wonderful.

We can’t remember if we’ve seen him play the piano before, but we definitely loved that. And his sound was pitch-perfect. An outstanding combination of his rock ‘n roll rasp and some lovely tender moments. Fantastic.

The judges were also complimentary. L.A. told him he has the right amount of everything, Nicole was effusively praised by Simon for her work as the over-30s mentor. What did you think, “X Factor” fans?
