ROUND 2 – Joshua Ledet performed “A Change Is Gonna To Come” tonight on American Idol the Top 7. It is the same group as last week after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez with their only save last week. This week each contestant will be on the American Idol stage twice, the theme for this week is Now and Then. We are getting awfully close, can you imagine how much stress the contestants are feeling?
The “singers” had to pick a #1 hit song from 2000-2012 and then sing an older soul song. The mentor for tonight’s show is Jimmy Levine. In the first round Joshua said he didn’t know why he was in the bottom three last week and Jimmy tells him he needs to look within himself and find out why. Joshua’s biggest inspiration in his life has been former Idol, Fantasia Barrino. In ROUND 1, Joshua sang, “I believe” by Fanstasia.

Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “It’s crazy, I still wanted more at the end, I just love you.” Steven said, “You have stressed your voice to the limits of soul, that’s what made it so big when it popped, that’s what it is all about.” Randy said, “This song was perfect for you, you took your time then you burst it open at the end, it was just stellar and the talent this year is better than any show on tv.”
