As featured on Fox on Wednesday night, the American Idol Season 11 Top 3 finalists sang three songs each; first was picked by the three judges, second song was contestants they wanted to sing, and third one was chosen by mentor Jimmy Iovine.

Apparently, Joshua Ledet was the first finalist to sing, and was followed Jessica Sanchez and then Phillip Phillips, with Judge Randy Jackson seen the first one to give a standing ovation to Joshua, who sang “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta James.

Steven Tyler later followed Jackson, with Jennifer Lopez taking a bit longer before she stood up, as the three judges gave him good praises. Steven noted that it was another Joshua moment, while Randy said he hopes Joshua can bring his touch to modern times.

For the second round, Joshua sang “Imagine” by John Lennon and Randy asked him why he chose that song and he said that the song was connected with him. He said he heard it on the radio and he wanted to deliver the message.

For Round 3, Joshua, who also received a standing ovation last week when he sang James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World”, sang “No More Drama” by Mary J. Blige and received another series of good praises from the three judges.

“At this point it doesn’t matter what you do or what you sing, people should just vote for you. The natural performer that you are, I don’t care, that is what being an artist is all about.” Randy told Joshua.

On the other hand, Jennifer said that Joshua has “this perfect marriage of knowing what he is doing and knowing when to do it” and that his being spontaneous brings excitement, while Steven noted that it was beautiful and was over the top.
