Joshua Ledet Eliminated From American Idol

American Idol: Was the Right Person Voted Off?

Joshua Ledet has been let go of season 11 of American Idol. I don't know about you, but I just overreacted a little bit. My neighbors might come over and check to make sure if I'm all right after the shriek that I let out when Ryan announced Phillip Phillips would be joining Jessica Sanchez at next week's finale. Admittedly, I haven't been championing Joshua over the past couple weeks, but that's just because I figured the judges were doing it so much that I didn't need to. Apparently the soul singer could have used the extra help.

At least we got a couple performances leading into the elimination. I did a double take when I saw Lisa Marie Presley up on the Idol stage, then another one when Adam Lambert showed up, glowing all kinds of neon. It wasn't a bad show, I'm just surprised at the outcome. So was Steven, who, if you didn't catch his reaction, had an "I'm not impressed" look slapped all over his disapproving face. What do you think — was the right person voted off?

OMG!!!!! YES!!!!! FINALLY.........It is about time. I couldn't stand him. All he did was scream when he sings. It was very annoying. Then he picked up or tried to pick up Phil's Personality by copying his moves and facial expressions. :(I LOVE PHIL......He's style is NEW and ORIGINAL. He is not trying to be something he isn't .....HE is a GREAT SINGER. He will go far. Jazzy/Blues are coming back. FINALLY. I love his STYLE, PERSONALITY, MOVES, LOOKS.... PHIL HAS IT ALL!!!!!!! HE IS AMAZING!!!!!! xoxo

A tragedy occured last night! I hate to say this but I have to - If he were not brown, he'd of been crowned AI winner for season 11. That's just the way it is. It pained me to see him voted off last night. I truly hope and pray that he gets a record deal and takes America by storm.

No way. Joshua was the best singer AI has seen in a long time. Jessica should have been the one to go. At least Phillip is definitely going to win. I do like him. But out of all the AI contestants, ever, I would only buy Joshua's albums. And I plan to follow his career. He's a doll and an amazing singer.

I'm really depressed about Joshua being voted off.  He was unbelievably great!  A total joy to watch.  I'll miss the visuals as much as his singing, because he was really entertaining.  If skinny, little, bucktoothed Jessica wins and pops up on TV all the time I'll really be annoyed.
