Josh Krajcik gets showcase performance on 'The Bachelor'

Former "X Factor" U.S. finalist Josh Krajcik has a showcase performance on ABC's "The Bachelor," in an episode that will premiere on Jan. 13, 2014.

In this season of "The Bachelor," former professional soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis (who is 32) chooses from 27 single women and possibly gets engaged to one of them at the end of the season. His first one-on-one date with 32-year-old hairstylist Clare features a "private concert" performed by Krajcik, who is a blues-influenced rock singer.

Here is how the date is described in an ABC press release:

"Juan Pablo, who likes to call himself 'El Bachelor,' flirtatiously blindfolds Clare and proceeds to drive her to a secret location on the outskirts of Los Angeles. To her amazement, she discovers that a snow-covered fantasy has been created for them right in the middle of balmy Los Angeles. The couple spends a magical evening sledding down mountains, building snowmen and ice skating on a private rink. The Bachelor uncovers an emotional side to Clare as she recounts the heart-wrenching story of her father’s death and how it has impacted her and her ability to open her heart to love. Later, the couple shares passionate kisses as they dance the night away while being serenaded in a private concert by singer-songwriter Josh Krajcik. But will all of this be enough for Juan Pablo to offer Clare a rose or will she be sent home?"

Other artists who have done "private concerts" in previous seasons of "The Bachelor" include Darius Rucker, Kate Earl, Romeo Santos, Sarah Darling and Matt White.

Krajcik came in second place on "The X Factor" U.S.'s first season in 2011. Like all of the other former contestants from that season who released music, Krajcik has been flopping on the Billboard sales charts. (Melanie Amaro, Chris Rene, Rachel Crow and Marcus Canty have also had dismal sales in the U.S. for their music.)

As previously reported, Krajcik's album "Blindly Lonely Lovely" album peaked at No. 140 on the Billboard 200 chart when the album was released in April 2013. His self-titled EP that was released in 2012 didn't even make it on the chart.

It remains to be seen how Krajcik's appearance on "The Bachelor" will affect sales for his music.
