American Idol's Greatest Performance Ever!
I have been blessed to see the legend James Brown in concert three times before he died. But nothing prepared me for Josh's performance on Idol tonight. We can't believe what we just saw!
'It's a Man's Man's Man's World', the 1966 single by James Brown (Co-Written By Betty Jean Newsome) is one of my favorite songs of all time. Is there any way 'AI' contestant Joshua Ledet could out perform the legend?
Wow. If you count the incredible arrangement - with the all girl violin and horn sections - he did it. This needs to be his first single - He is in it to win it!!!
Judge Randy Jackson called it "One of the best performances in the history of any singing show." Co judges Steven Tylor and J-Lo were also blown away - all gave Josh a standing O.
You may never see another performance like this again on any singing realty show. This was insane...Josh is now the favorite to win the show!
If this wasn't enough, Jessica Sanchez was almost as good when she followed with Jennifer Holliday's 'And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going'.
In this reporters opinion, It's Josh and Jessica as the final two. Hollie is going home tomorrow...the 'wild card' is Phillip Phillips.
See you tomorrow night on FOX! Who will go home?
