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...
