Josh Krajcik (Team Nicole Scherzinger) kicked off the show in style with a rocking performance of “Dirty Diana” during a very special Michael Jackson tribute night at the “The X-Factor” Top 7 live show on Wednesday (November 30)- watch video below.
MJ was one of Josh’s idols when he was a kid, but the contestant was forced to come out of his comfort zone this week. “Dirty Diana” is one of those rocker songs, so Josh shouldn’t have been that nervous. The half naked dancers definitely did not make him feel more comfortable. Get those horny ladies out of there!
L.A. Reid was happy Josh stepped out of his comfy zone and landed on his feet. Paula Abdul claimed some of the best performances come from that discomfort zone. Simon Cowell thought that was Josh’s weakest performance because it was overproduced. Josh stopped being himself to become who his mentor wants him to be. Nicole Scherzinger defended her pupil, saying they are not afraid to take risks.
