Joshua Ledet Eliminated on ‘American Idol’

Joshua Ledet

On tonight’s (May 17) results episode of ‘American Idol,’ which determined the Top 2 for Season 11, Joshua Ledet was eliminated and sent home. It’s the end of the road for Ledet on ‘Idol,’ but don’t fret for him. He will likely be scooped up to an Interscope record deal courtesy of show mentor Jimmy Iovine as soon as he gets backstage and has a second to breathe.

Much like Adam Lambert, who performed on tonight’s episode and placed second during his season, this is not the last we will hear from JL.

Ledet was certainly a consistent judge’s favorite, grabbing standing Os with great frequency, as well as being an audience fave. He was a PopCrush fave, too, for the way he would rip off his jackets while performing. It was a charming move.

For his ‘Idol’ stage swan song, he sang ‘It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World,’ reminding us why he made it to the Top 3 of Season 11 in the first place.

With Joshua Ledet eliminated, that means Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips will go head-to-head and voice- to-voice on next week’s two-episode finale, which takes place on Tuesday, May 22 and Wednesday, May 23, respectively.

It’s going to be quite the battle between those two, since she’s the powerhouse diva and he’s the outstanding artist that pretty much owns the female vote. It’ll be interesting, that’s for sure.
