Joshua Ledet Receives Standing O on American Idol

by at . Comments

From a giant tub of crawfish to a standing ovation for all in attendance, it was a good night for Joshua Ledet on Wednesday.

The American Idol finalist first received a gift of those creatures from his friends in Louisiana, and then proceeded to gift viewers with a beautiful cover of Michael Bolton's "When a Man Loves a Woman."

He hit every note and every emotion, forcing Jennifer, Steven and Randy out of their seats long before the song even ended. The former said it was "the best thing I've ever seen on American Idol."

That's quite high praise. Was it deserved? Watch Ledet in action now and prepare yourself for many more weeks of Mantasia...

The best I have seen on American Idol according to Jennifer what's her name? Really best AI for the last 11 season? You over reacted right?

Joshua is awesome, but I think that was WAY out of line for Jennifer to say it was "the best thing she's ever seen on idol". She got carried away. C'mon, the dude is really good, but it's not the absolute best I've seen. All I'm saying.

You're kidding right, Sara Niemietz is good but Joshua Ledet would eat her for lunch. Watch him perform last night is like watching Sam Cooke or Jackie Wilson in their prime. Every perform with Joshua is like watching a mini-concert.

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

Paula Abdul [after Brooke White was eliminated on season seven]

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
