About Josh Levi

Josh Levi had a small recurring role on Friday Night Lights before breaking out as a singer on The X Factor USA. After placing as a finalist on the show, Josh went to YouTube to record cover songs with polished videos, like his duet with Ellona Santiago covering Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally," which has nearly 500k views. His YouTube channel has also become a home for vlogs and comedic videos, like his “Prank Calling Fans," where he called a number of fans unexpectedly—and got adorably nervous. In 2015, he turned Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen" into a beautiful piano ballad.
