American Idol

Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.

Joshua Ledet called 'unbelivable,' 'fabulous' and 'inspired' on 'American Idol'

Joshua Ledet singing "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," which I never knew was by Queen, on "American Idol."

He's giving it a real 1950s rock feel, complete with an old-fashioned mc and period clothes. Side of him we haven't seen before; best part is when the band and backup singers go silent and he just belts out a couple lines himself -- impeccable timing, a real musician.

He gets a staggered standing ovation from the judges. "That was unbelievable," says Randy Jackson for what feels like the third time tonight (we've only had three performers.) At some point it becomes believable, no?

Jennifer Lopez says flat out, "The Joshua part of the show is my favorite part of the show," she loves how his vocals and performance are always "inspired."

"You sound like nobody else -- that was just fantastic," says Steven Tyler.
