Every Thursday is elimination night on American Idol.  The competition gets harder and harder, and everyone is on the edge of their seat hoping they weren't voted off.  Well, I'm here to tell you Joshua Ledet of Westlake, Louisiana MADE IT THROUGH!!!!He is now in the top 9!  WOW!  I know I keep saying that, but I just can't think of a better word.  Louisiana just keep watching, keep praying and keep voting!  If you missed Joshua's performance of "She's Got A Way" by Billie Joel here it is again.

The judges were a little tough, but he made it through to next week and that's all that matters. Unfortunate, in a competition someone has to loose. Last nights bottom three was Erika Van Pelt, DeAndre Brackensick, and Heejun Han. However, Erika, whom just cut her hair, was sent packing.
Remember the judges have one "save" for the season, meaning even if America votes someone off they can save that person from elimination. Unfortunate for Erika, she wasn't the one.

On the bright side, Joshua Ledet....IS ON TO THE NEXT ONE!!! Get em Josh!
