Joshua Ledet now has something in common with Kellie Pickler -- finishing third on American Idol.

Yep, in case you missed it last night, Westlake's Joshua Ledet surprisingly was the odd man out as he did not make the final two of American Idol's 11th season.

After three outstanding performances on Wednesday's show, the speculation wasn't if Ledet would make it through but who he would be up against. Guess you can never count on a sure thing when America is voting.

16-year-old R&B singer Jessica Sanchez got the first golden ticket through to the finals. Then, it was suspense time as folk-rock wannabe Phillip Phillips and Joshua Ledet were left waiting for the final spot. Here is how it went down:

The 20-year-old Ledet took it all in stride and got to give one final performance as is custom for the show.

I think I speak for the majority of us south Louisianians when I say, "do we really care who wins now?" Although I'm pretty sure Mr. Ledet is going to do just fine in whatever he chooses to do next.
