SHOCKER!!! Joshua Ledet Goes Home – It’s Phillip vs Jessica in the Finals
Three talented and amazing singers started the night on American Idol, but one of them had to leave the competition after 90 million votes were cast last night by public viewers.
Who made the Final 2? Who went home tonight?
Million jaws dropped to the floor Thursday night as Joshua ‘Mantasia’ Ledet got voted off ‘American Idol.’ Days before the Idol finale, but unfortunately, this 19-year-old church singer shockingly voted out – with Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez competing for the victory.
On Wednesday, Top 3 finalists took on multiple themes allowing them to perform a song of their own choice and the others were judges and Jimmy Iovine’s pick. Joshua performed Etta James’ ‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ (Randy’s pick), ‘No More Drama’ by Mary J Blige picked by Jimmy, and ‘Imagine’ by John Lennon as his personal choice.
The night’s guest performers included runner-up Adam Lambert and Lisa Marie Presley.
