X Factor 2013: Josh Levi Brought Back as a Wildcard!

Only five minutes into the second week of Live Shows and X Factor is already throwing us a curveball! Turns out after last week’s brutal cuts — four gone in just two hours! — the judges put their equally hair-sprayed heads together and realized they’d made a terrible mistake. Paulina Rubio wanted Josh Levi back! (Learn more about the teen star and see his previous performances.)

This isn’t the first time Paulina’s changed her mind this season (remember back when the audience convinced her to keep Tim Olstad?) and, just like last time, she made a smart move!

One of the youngest players in the X Factor game, Josh previously impressed us with his mature and soulful take on numbers including Rihanna’s “Stay” and Selena Gomez’s “Come and Get It.” During tonight’s Live Show he gave the Jackson 5’s “Who’s Loving You” a try and had the judges saying they love Josh, that’s who!

“[Bringing you back] is the smartest thing Paulina did,” Demi Lovato said while Simon Cowell assured Josh he’d gone from “zero to hero” in just one week. All we have to say: Welcome back, Josh!

Will he make it through to the next round? That’s up to us! Remember to cast your vote for Josh if you want him to stick around.
