American Idol viewers have selected Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips to compete in the season 11 finale. Unfortunately, that means they eliminated Joshua Ledet, arguably the most gifted performer ever to be an American Idol contestant. The other two contestants are impressively talented and have the ability to deliver showstopping performances. However, neither can match the consistency with which Joshua Ledet dug into every song he was asked to sing and delivered spine-tingling moment after spine-tingling moment. However, he will join the ranks of such gifted artists as Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, and Adam Lambert who were all eliminated ahead of what seemed lesser talents. Next week the 11th season of American Idol rolls to its climax when Jessica Sanchez or Phillip Phillips will be crowned the show's newest champion.
