Josh has sold almost 20 million albums in the US, and each of his four solo albums has gone multi-platinum in the US. What an underachiever! His 2003 album Closer was his first to reach No. 1 and contained his cover of "You Raise Me Up," which became popular on the adult contemporary charts. It's also a personal favorite of American Idol's Simon Cowell, not an easy person to win over! His 2007 Christmas album Noel was the highest-grossing album of 2007 and became the first Christmas album to hold the No. 1 spot for five consecutive weeks in Billboard's history. Again, this guy is such a slacker. He has performed on television countless times, including at the Super Bowl, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and numerous talk shows, and acted in two episodes of Ally McBeal.
Random factoid: Josh dated Mad Men's January Jones from 2003 to 2006. It turns out that rockers aren't the only kinds of musicians who get with hotties!
