Three important facts about American Idol's Joshua Ledet

Posted By on Fri, May 18, 2012 at 4:08 PM

After making it to the top three in the singing competition, Westlake, La. native Joshua Ledet was eliminated from last night's American Idol. The 20-year-old throwback crooner must have been a popular contestant, because now teenagers on the Internet are yelling about how the elimination process is clearly rigged (controversy among viewers about the show's viewer controlled voting process has existed since the beginning).

Let us pay tribute to Ledet with the scholarly journal Us Weekly, who earlier this week sent over a press release including 25 facts about the remaining Idol contestants. Here are three important things to know about Ledet:

“I’m terrified of feathers.”

“I just recently found out that unicorns weren’t real.”

“I once fell asleep on a roller coaster.”

Good thing he chose singing, and not unicorn biology or pillow-making, as a vocation.

As for the remaining contestants, Jessica Sanchez is reported to "hum at awkward moments" and Phillip Phillips once got stung by a jellyfish.

Here's Ledet singing James Brown's "It's A Man's Man's Man's World," which he reprised on last night's elimination.
