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?

"Mantasia" himself, Joshua Ledet, led off American Idol's Top 13 with a rendition of Stevie Wonder's "I Wish" that he said was "totally out of my comfort zone."

With a little help from a piano player with a gospel background similar to Joshua's, you wouldn't have known it Wednesday night. He did a nice job with it.

This season 11 hopeful covered a song by one American Idol icon last night (Jennifer Hudson's "You Pulled Me Through") and was then referred to by Steve Tyler as "Mantasia," a clear reference to season four winner Fantasia Barrino.
