Joshia Ledet: Simply Awesome on Simply Red

by at . Comments

American Idol fans: if you don't know Joshia Ledet by now... what show have you been watching?!?

This soulful singer did it again last night, bringing all three judges to their feet with a passionate rendition of a Simply Red remake from the 1980s, "If You Don't Know Me By Now." Can you believe Ledet is only 19 years old?

To Jenner Lopez, it was a "powerhouse performance. For Steven Tyler, it was "just perfect." What did you make of Joshua's latest? How do you compare him to fellow male favorite, Phillip Phillips? Ponder that question as you watch this cover:

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.

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.
