Have you been watching Amercian Idol? If so, then you know that one of our own from right here in Southwest Louisiana is a finalist on the show.

Joshua Ledet, who is from right over the I-10 bridge in Westlake, Louisiana, has been rocking the stage on American Idol. He is one of only seven contestants left for the title. Joshua is awesome and one of the best on the show in my opinion. He really is talented!

Last week, he found himself in the bottom three people. We want to make sure that doesn’t happen again so here are all the ways you can vote for Joshua Ledet.

Joshua also has connections to Cajun & Zydeco music. His cousin, Brandon Ledet, is a Zydeco artist who you may have seen perform last weekend at the crawfish festival. Joshua’s brother is married to Keith Frank’s sister who plays in Keith Frank’s band.
