Josh Ledet Makes a "Wish" on American Idol

by at . Comments

"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.

A pretty safe performance, perhaps, but a respectable one.

"You just wore it out, at the top of the show," Randy Jackson, never one to exaggerate at all, tells him. "You've got this amazing Church of God in Christ kind of voice ... If you feel the beat and rock like that, you can sing anything."
