Josh Groban (born February 27, 1981), is an actor/singer-songwriter. He appeared twice on the TV series Glee, in which he portrayed himself.
Sometime before Acafellas, Josh accidentally 'friended' Sandy Ryerson on MySpace. Sandy then became obsessed with Josh, and frequently sent Josh nude photos, edible gift baskets, locks of hair, and sonnets, and constantly called Josh, even after Josh changed his number.
Sandy invited Josh to attend an Acafellas performance, and much to the surprise of Will and the rest of the Acafellas, Josh agreed. However it was only with the intent to deliver a restraining order. After the show, Josh went backstage, complimented the group on their performance, and delivered the restraining order. He made certain to bring his bodyguard Flex with him to keep Sandy from getting too close. After the, he hits on Mrs. Schuester, claiming to like blowsy alcoholics like herself. Whether he pursued these feelings for her are unknown.
Josh makes a follow-up appearance in Journey, in which he along with Sue Sylvester, Olivia Newton-John, and Rod Remington are selected to be celebrity judges for Regionals. Josh at first appears to be the only one in support of New Directions, feeling that they were the only group with heart. He also comments "that brunette" (Rachel) has an amazing voice. His opinion however is ridiculed by Olivia and Rod, and when Sue surprisingly argues in defense of the Glee group, Josh joins in with Olivia and Rod in insulting Sue, saying that it's ridicule to call her famous in comparison to them. This provokes Sue to vote New Directions for first place. However, Josh, Olivia and Rod's vote give the top two places to Vocal Adrenaline & Aural Intensity, seeing that he did not follow his opinion.
He romantically and/or sexually pursued her after an Acafellas performance. He tells her that he is not attracted to crowds of screaming teenagers and would rather be with a blowsy alcoholic like Mrs. Schuester. She tells him she may not be making good decisions because she is drunk, and he is immediately attracted to her.
During Journey, Sue and Josh are members of the celebrity judging panel for Regionals. In keeping with his love of older women, Josh asks whether Sue is single while they discuss who should win. However, despite finding Sue attractive, Josh seems to find the idea that Sue and the other judges, Olivia Newton-John and Rod Remington are considered celebrities laughable. As such, the likelihood of them having a relationship is highly unlikely.
Josh: And which one of you is...Sandy?
Crowds of screaming teenagers don't do it for Josh Groban... No... Josh Groban likes a blousy alcoholic.
