Josiah Leming skips 'Idol,' signs a record deal
Remember Josiah Leming, that kid on American Idol who was living out of his car and cried his eyes out at the drop of a hat (especially when it was Simon Cowell's hat)? He may not have made the top 24, but according to the Knoxville News Sentinel, he definitely rated a recording contract with Warner Bros.
According to the paper's Web site, Leming is a full-blown artist now, getting an agent and an entertainment lawyer and even buying his dad a new truck. No word on whether any Lemings are living in it.
Proof that he may actually be the real deal is that Josiah had a show at L.A.'s Hotel Cafe on March 7 (check the video above). Who says you need to go through weeks of denigrating reality TV to make it big?
