Joshua Ledet Responds to Being Called One of the Best Singers on 'American Idol'
What do you do when Randy Jackson says you're literally one of the best singers ever on American Idol?
If you're Joshua Ledet, you take it all in stride. He told reporters, "That definitely shocked me when he said that because there are some great singers on the show."
The Top 5 contestant added, "I was completely in awe and I still am in awe and I can't believe that he said that. I'm truly humbled and I just took it in with all my love and it really touched my heart."
Not only did he soak in Randy's comments, he took in J. Lo's as well. The 42-year-old entertainer said he's the best singer in 50 years! Joshua explained, "These compliments from the judges — it's ridiculous because these people are top of the line. I don't even know what to say. Growing up watching these people on TV and being complimented on how good you are — it's so breathtaking."
Breathtaking indeed! Remarking that he was excited about singing a duet with Phillip Phillips, Joshua was also kind of scared as well. "The song was about love, and I think he was scared, too," Joshua confessed.
Why so scary? Apparently it was all about singing a love song with another guy. Keeping the audience in mind, he added, "On national television!"
As for any bromance potentially brewing, he quickly shot down that notion. Joshua emphatically stated, "No! No, no."
Stay tuned to American Idol tonight at 8 p.m. ET when another contestant is eliminated! Who do you think will go home?
