Josh Ledet almost looks like he is sure to be the next American Idol. However, there are no locks when it comes to American Idol voting. Ryan Seacrest will announce the voting tonight and I have a feeling the final two will be Joshua Ledet and Phil Phillips,but it wouldn’t surprise me to see Jessica Sanchez competing against Josh, to be the next American Idol next Tuesday night.
There is even a chance that Josh could be leaving the show tonight, if his fans don’t take the time to vote for him, thinking it is a done deal that he will be the next American Idol.
I was only able to see the last half hour of the show last night, after coming home from church. We don’t have a DVR so there was o way to record the whole show.
Anyway, we saw all three singers sing the songs, that Jimmy Iovine had picked for them during that half hour.
Josh Ledet did his usual great job of singing No More Drama and the judges continued to praise his singing and his performance.
Jessica Sanchez sang I’ll Be There as the song Jimmy had chosen for her. I thought she did a good job, but Randy Jackson said it was OK for him and the song didn’t have a “moment, moment” . For me that song doesn’t have a “moment, moment” in the first place, but that is only my opinion and nothing more.
Phil Phillips sang We’ve Got Tonight, the first song of Phil’s that I really liked. I like the classic ballads, so may be why I liked it so much.
Josh still looks like he should be in the final two, but with American Idol you never know till the votes are announced. I have a feeling that Phil has a huge fan base that may keep him from going home tonight. It could even be a Jessica and Phil finale next week, if the fans of Josh didn’t take time to vote for him last night.
For a recap of the complete show:
We will know who the next American Idol will be in six days. I can see Josh Ledet selling millions of albums, but not so well for Jessica and Phil, when it comes to record sales. Album sales for Phil should not go well, if he is the next American Idol nor for Jessica. I can’t see either of them selling enough albums to go gold or platinum.
Personally, I will be rooting for Josh as long as he is in the competition, since he lives so close to our house. In addition to that though, he is clearly the best singer on American Idol this season.
