Joshua Ledet rendered just about every judge on American Idol speechless during Wednesday’s episode.
Performing Grammy Award winner India Arie’s song “Ready For Love,” Ledet not only received praise from the judges but a standing ovation as well.
“I don’t even know what to say anymore. I am so speechless,” said Randy Jackson. “You are so spot on. This is what it’s about.”

Soulful and controlled, Ledet’s performance also went over well with Jennifer Lopez.
“I don’t even know what to say anymore to you. That was transcended. You snap us right into reality. You bring us so present. It’s such a gift,” said Lopez.
Steven Tyler agreed.
“I’m snapped into reality when you sing. All I can say is, I hope the label finds you some good songs,” said Tyler.
“Ready For Love” was Joshua Ledet’s second performance of the night, following an equally rousing tribute to Queen.
Nonetheless, Joshua Ledet will face elimination when American Idol returns, naming the top 5.
American Idol, the results show, airs Thursday night at 8pm on FOX.
