Joshua Wicker – 25 – Jacksonville FL – Stay by Rihanna – His wife is 3 weeks away from having a baby, but it hasn’t stopped her from accompanying him to the audition. She swears she might go into labor if she meets Harry. Jlo thinks Joshua looks like Ryan Gosling. He flips a Rihanna song.  Not bad, but not incredibly original, either. There are dozens of dudes doing pretty much the same thing on Youtube.  He’s super dramatic. But his voice lacks…something. Jlo notes the “pretty colors” in his voice. Harry calls it “compelling.” Keith says he sang it like he wrote it. Harry teases that he’s gonna say no. 3 yesses. The wife comes in to meet Harry.  He tries to psych her out…before revealing he’s off to Hollywood. We get an update–a little baby girl in Josh’s arms. Aw. Shades of Phil Stacey back in season 6.
