Joshua Ledet performed ’I Believe’ 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.
Joshua Ledet doesn’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. Joshua sings, “I believe” by Fanstasia.
Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “You leave it all on the stage every time, it’s all of you, it’s amazing to watch, I feel blessed that I get to watch you every week.”Steven said, “This is just a stepping song to you winning the whole thing, you could sing the phone book, great.” Randy said, “I loved that you picked a song that you believed in, you are truly one of the greatest gifted singers on this show, you pulled back with this song and it touched us, that is the mark of true growth, love you.”
