About Josh Levi

Starting in showbiz with a recurring role on Friday Night Lights at age 9, and making a bigger splash at 14 on The X Factor, Josh Levi now takes to YouTube to appease his 170K+ subscribers, with fan-suggested covers showing off his virtuosic voice, and vlogs or challenges posted to let them see his fun and serious sides, too. The Houston native and LA transplant might cover Drake or Justin Bieber, but always makes the song his own. He brings smiles to his #LeviNation when he post things like the “CHUBBY BUNNY SINGING CHALLENGE,” stuffing his face with marshmallows while trying to sing hit songs with fellow YouTube stars the Merrell Twins. Now just 18 years old, Josh Levi is becoming the star that The X Factor judges knew he would be.
