It's a good thing Joshua Ledet got on that plane to Hollywood, isn't it? Who knows how far he'll go now.

This 19-year old from Louisiana - who started singing at the age of three in church, and who is a rumored member of the top 24 - told the American Idol judges last night that he nearly couldn't board his flight due to anxiety.

But he got up the courage, sang an emotional cover of "Jar of Hearts" and received a well-deserved standing ovation, as well as a pass on to the next round. Watch the sterling audition now and most definitely keep an eye on Ledet going forward:
