I'm sure the judges are so heartbroken with Joshua Ledet's elimination 'coz he has been their obvious top favorite, after giving him a total of 12 standing ovations. His first standing ovation was for Top 11 Performance of "When A Man Loves A Woman" and the 12th time was during the Top 3 round after he performed "I'd Rather Go Blind".

For the record, Joshua had been in the bottom list of American Idol 2012 once twice, during the Top 13 and Top 7 when Jessica was saved from elimination by the judges.

The Top 7 round was also Jessica's first and last in the bottom 3, while Phillip, in a clean record, had never been part of the bottom list. ©
