On tonight's (May 17) results episode of 'American Idol,' which determined the Top 2 for Season 11, Joshua Ledet was eliminated and sent home. It's the end of the road for Ledet on 'Idol,' but don't fret for him. He will likely be scooped up to an Interscope record deal courtesy of show mentor Jimmy Iovine as soon as he gets backstage and has a second to breathe.
For the third round, mentor Jimmy Iovine got to pick a song for the ‘American Idol’ contestants to sing. Lucky for Joshua Ledet, it really doesn’t matter what he sings. Iovine could have told the singer he was doing ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’ and Ledet would have somehow blown it out of the water.
Who is going to be crowned the 'American Idol' winner of Season 11? We can't know for sure until the 'American Idol' finale on May 24, but there are only three contestants left in the running.
Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet all have their own unique vocal style, and all three fall into different genres on the music spectrum, so it's definitely going to be a tough decision for voters. We want to know: Who are you rooting for to be named this year's 'American Idol'?
‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet did sunshine state native Josh Groban proud with his powerful performance of the song 'You Raise Me Up' on tonight's (May 9) episode. Ledet showed a range of vocal variety, taking us from low to high and making it almost impossible to believe that last year he was sent home without even a ticket to Hollywood.
This week, ‘American Idol’ contestant Joshua Ledet sang ‘Ain't Too Proud To Beg’ by Motown sensations the Temptations. After this performance, we don’t think Ledet will have to beg, or even politely ask for America’s vote because he’s already got it. In rehearsal, Jimmy Iovine told the singer he was “a gift” and joked about when, not if, he would be making a record with Ledet.
