American Idol 2012 top 5 soulful singer Joshua Ledet is an obvious favorite of the judges and the voters. Although he has found himself slipping down in the ranks the past few weeks, Joshua continues to bring the judges to their feet with his powerful performances and he commands a strong and vocal fan base.

Despite being a favorite on American Idol 2012 to many viewers, some fan polls this week have placed Joshua Ledet in the bottom two this week. In fact, there is more than one poll out there that actually shows Joshua Ledet as the one most in danger of elimination this round.Sometimes too much attention from the judges can have a negative backlash and that could be causing Joshua Ledet some trouble with the voters. Of course, there are the conspiracy theorists out there that think the judges are being SO vocal in their support of Joshua to distract from how much they actually want Jessica Sanchez to win. (Because the louder the judges cheer for someone, the more the voters get irritated about so-called ‘favoritism’.) There are all kinds of wild conspiracy theories out there.

In the end, it may just simply come down to which guy the voters like best because it is very unlikely we’ll end up with a final two of girl versus girl. Can Joshua Ledet impress the voters enough to put him above Phillip Phillips in the rankings? Check out his second performance tonight and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
