Joshua Ledet decided to bring his A game this week on “American Idol.” His second song was “Ready for Love” by India Arie and he absolutely murdered it dead. What was so great is that it wasn’t Joshua screaming his head off like on some songs. He was restrained and it made it all that much better. The quiet power was so good and then the few times he did let loose on some high notes were nice because they were used sparingly.

The judges gave him a second standing ovation. Randy says, “I don’t even know what to say anymore … that run at the end. You’re so spot on, so way beyond your age in experience and talent” and Steven tylers, “I hope the label finds you a bunch of good songs and you’re off to the moon.”

What did you think, “Idol” fans? Is Joshua a serious threat to win? Does he get your votes tonight?
