“American Idol” contestants Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips are moving on to the finals – and Joshua Ledet is going home.
The three singers performed three songs each on Wednesday, one chosen by the judges, one of their own songs and finally one chosen by mentor Jimmy Iovine.
Judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, and Randy Jackson chose Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind" for Ledet's first performance. Watch!
Ledet was gracious in defeat. He closed the singing contest Thursday with his rendition of "It's a Man's World," replicating one of his most popular performances of the season.
The finale will consist of a two-hour performance episode on Tuesday, May 22, followed by a results episode on Wednesday.
