josh krajcik x factor Meet 'The X Factor' finalist: Josh KrajcikAs “The X Factor” voting is now in the hands of the viewers, it seems an appropriate time to give fans insight into the finalists. In the coming weeks Zap2it will highlight the remaining acts while finding out more about their background, musical styles and experiences on the singing competition.

So here are a few things you probably didn’t know about Josh Krajcik:

Age: 30
Hometown: Columbus, OH
Occupation: Burrito maker
Coach: Nicole Scherzinger

On what motivated him to audition: “I think part of it was turning 30. So with that as a milestone, I said, ‘To Hell with it. Let’s do this.'”

On leaving his band of seven years to go on the show: “They were all for it, they said, ‘Do it.’ I said, ‘You know it’s going to mean big changes? We might not be able to do the same things as we were.’ And they were like, ‘Listen. Go for it.'”

On his song selection process: “It’s a collaborative effort. I try to put my ideas in there. Ultimately it comes down to Nicole’s decision, which is kind of refreshing because the pressure is off me…However the pressure is on me to deliver.”

On the music he’d like to perform on “The X Factor”: “I think it would be fun to do a Muse song. Soundgarden I’m a big fan of too…I’d like to do something like that at some point.”

On being older than much of his competition: “It’s strange because I’m so out of touch with what they’re in touch with…It’s different going against kids because they have a whole different set of skills and background than I do.”

On the whole experience: “It’s been kind of a whirlwind really. That’s so cliche of a word to use in this situation, but really, it’s true.”
