Joshua Ledet out–Jessica and Philip are in

May 18, 2012 § 3 Comments

Louisiana native Joshua Ledet, the man who idolizes Fantasia and was actually tagged as “Mantasia” by the American media, is out of the American Idol season 11. Ledet, whom the judges thought gave the best performance during the Top 3 performances, lost out in the vote. 

Unofficial results say, Jessica got the highest number of votes from the American public. Ninety million votes were counted, and program insiders say, Jessica got more than 80 million votes, with the rest divided between Ledet and Philips.

What probably pulled Jessica through is the choice of popular songs which connected with the American public. Though it was not Jessica’s best vocal performances, nonetheless, her songs resonated. 

Ledet’s style meanwhile, is getting boring. Yes, he gave his all but the judges thought that that was it, and he does not have the chops to really bring out a new side of him.

This is not what Philips is doing. Philips showed that he can hold a tune, and he can still show a new dimension in his performance. His two songs in the Top 3 performances are revelatory. It shows that Philips can still hold his own over the popular Jessica Sanchez.

Now, the finale will be very interesting. A Sanchez win will break the all male winners at AI. She will also be the youngest winner in AI history. She will also be the first member of the Filipino-American, and the Latino community to have clinched the title.

    ps- i think this idol was a very talented crew, the season on the whole, but it really didn’t have as many moments as i thought it had the potential to have. it was a little bland for me. you should do a topic or poll to get people to say the songs/performances that they thought were the best of the season. for me: when elise did that hard core rock song… robert plant? forgetting what it was, but it was fantastic and the only time she wowwed me. when jessica did stuttering (i think i was wowed a couple more times, but that was the most wow to me) phillip’s volcano song joshua’s man’s world skylar always performed well, but not with killer songs- maybe wind beneath my wings, but just b/c that song is so damn good i can’t even think of any other wow moments. that’s pretty weak. adam lambert had a wow moment pretty much every week on stage- i can even list some of them to date! and he didn’t even win… ridiculous. but honestly, was it just me, or were the wow performances at an alltime low this season? maybe i’m just getting bored of the song selection. and definitely bored of the judges even tho i like them. jimmy was the only one that i even had any interest in hearing what he said (even tho i didn’t think he “got” jessica). i’m switching to x-factor with cowell and britney next season.

  • Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this web site before but after going through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely pleased I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!
