Paulina Rubio may have thought Josh Levi was not good enough on week 11 on “The X Factor USA” 2013. But the Season 3 panel has thought it is best to bring him back on the show. This week, the young hopeful returns with Top 12 finalists and gave everything he got to advance for the win on the reality singing competition.

The 14-year old from West Hollywood, CA. came back on stage Wednesday night and blew the judges away with his rendition of Jackson 5’s, “Who’s Loving You.”

“[Bringing you back] is the smartest thing Paulina did,” Demi Lovato said, according to Wetpaint, as Simon Cowell assured the young singer leveling up from “zero to hero” in just seven days.

TXFU said goodbye to Josh last week when Paulina Rubio didn’t think he was good enough. But after hearing the young crooner Wednesday evening, his mentor changed her mind and she’s being praised for the “smart move.”

According to the Entertainmentwise.com, Simon Cowell declared bring him back on the show is the right thing to do.

Simon said, "There were a lot of people who could have made it through last week. One in particular - we all said the same thing - this person deserves a second shot."

Josh was having dinner with his mom when host Mario Lopez surprised him with the good news that he was given another shot on “The X Factor USA.”

"I'm so excited," he said, according to Entertainmentwise.com, before adding, "I'm definitely going to work ten times as hard now that I have a second chance."
