For the “American Idol” Top 4, Joshua Ledet took on some big voices in Josh Groban and James Brown with “You Raise Me Up” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World” and he really nailed them both.
What we loved about “You Raise Me Up” is that it was totally restrained. He held back, he didn’t shriek, he used his lower register more and it was fantastic. It was what we wish we saw more of from Joshua all season. J.Lo praised the “drae-ma” of the performance, she was so excited.
But then. Joshua took on “Man’s World” and he absolutely killed it. The judges couldn’t jump out of their seats fast enough. J.Lo called it “sickening” and Steven Tyler said, ” I can go home right now. I never heard anything like that in my life.”
The MP3 of “You Raise Me Up” is below and the video of “Man’s World” is above, in case you missed them. What did you think, “Idol” fans?
