While the Louisiana-born guy is sent home on the semifinal week, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips secure their place in the final rounds.
Joshua Ledet has lost his chance to claim the champion title of "American Idol" season 11. Despite being hailed by the judges for having one of the best vocals in the competition, the 20-year-old singer was eliminated based on audience's votes on Thursday night, May 17.
For his swan song, Joshua reprised his rendition of "It's a Man's Man's Man's World". "I want to win, but at this point we're all winners," he previously told PEOPLE after the Top 3 performances show. "I'm not gonna say I don't care, but I will be just as happy about me winning or two of my friends, Phillip or Jessica."
The Top 2 finalists, Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips, will fight off each other in the finale. The performances show will air Tuesday, May 22, while the results show will air on Wednesday.
