‘X Factor’ Contestant Josh Krajcik Tackles Joe Cocker’s Version of Beatles’ ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’

Josh Krajcik

Bluesy singer Josh Krajcik covered one of the most famous cover songs of all time by singing Joe Cocker‘s version of the Beatles‘ ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’ on tonight’s edition of ‘X Factor.’

From the moment Krajcik started singing, you can tell Cocker is a big influence on him. He seemed a little shaky in the beginning, but turned it around midway through the performance. His raspy vocals backed by a slew of backup singers was fairly true to Cocker’s version of the Beatles’ classic.

Three of the four judges praised Krajcik’s performance, with Paula Abdul calling his voice “chicken soup for the soul” — but Simon Cowell gave it a mixed review with criticism of the first half of the song and the staging of the performance.
