American Idol 2013: Josh Holiday – “Better With You” by Josh Holiday (VIDEO)

Josh Holiday decides to perform an original song on American Idol 2013 in the final Vegas round, but it isn’t quite as spectacular as when Angela Miller tried the same trick. He seems a bit pitchy and he should have stayed at the piano all the way through.

American Idol judge Keith Urban thinks Josh is talented, but he needs to loosen up.

Nicki Minaj thinks Josh should have stayed at the piano (what did we say!) and he seemed to be trying too hard in his performance.

Randy Jackson says he “liked the song okay” but he wasn’t “wowed” by it.

Mariah Carey likes that Josh is also a songwriter and notes that singer/songwriters are some of the biggest names in the music business.

Unfortunately for Josh, the original song choice didn’t go well for him. The judges decide his run on American Idol Season 12 is done.
