For Billy Joel week, a lot of the “American Idol” contestants seemed a little lost – because it actually seems like no one has heard of Billy Joel. Joshua Ledet chose “She’s Got a Way” and while the judges were critical he didn’t connect with it, we thought he did a pretty great job.

Jennifer says, “For me, with a song like that … I just needed to feel like you were connected more to the lyrics” and Randy adds, “Jump in, grab that lyric and make it your own. You actually, in the end, you got comfortable and you made it your own.”

Steven Tyler admits to never having heard that song before, which – really? You’re like old enough to be Billy Joel’s dad. But fine. That still doesn’t really give you room to criticize Joshua, though.

What did you think, “Idol” fans? Did you like Joshua’s performance?
