Who Is Joshua Ledet? American Idol 2012 Contestant Background Info

American Idol Season 11 contestant Joshua Ledet is one of the Top 3 finalists, singing his way into the judges’ (and viewers’) hearts. Joshua, 19, attended Westlake High School in Louisiana. Besides belting his sweet heart out, Joshua works for the police department and attends Lamar University.

Joshua began singing at age 3 in his dad’s church, basking in the glow of the parish’s support. It just felt so great to see all those people smiling and screaming. I knew it was something I wanted to do the rest of my life.” Joshua has always been an Idol fan, he says in his Road to Hollywood interview. “I’ve wondered, ‘Why can’t that be me on stage, doing the same thing they’re doing?’”

After Joshua's performance in the semifinals, judge Jennifer Lopez was so thrilled with his singing she said she wanted to punch him. After watching how well he's done in the subsequent rounds, we pretty much want to punch him too! (In a good way... in a good way.)
