The third-place finisher on the 11th season of Fox's American Idol vocal competition, Joshua Ledet became known for his old-school gospel and soul approach to singing. A native of Westlake, Louisiana, Ledet grew up singing in church and participated in his high school's theater program. He originally auditioned for the tenth season of American Idol, but did not make the cut. After finishing his time on the show, he toured with the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2012 and appeared on the American Idol Season 11: Highlights compilation. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
