Westlake’s Joshua Ledet is now a top 3 contender on American Idol.

Thursday night, after more than 70 million people voted nationwide, Joshua Ledet was sent into what’s known as the American Idol homecoming parade. The homecoming show is an “American Idol” mainstay featuring each of the three semi-finalists returning to their respective hometowns for a “heroes” welcome.

The parade is scheduled to happen Saturday, May 12, at noon. (The time could change due to the expected rainy weather). American Idol will be out there filming the parade. The parade will showcase traditional Louisiana Mardi Gras floats and local marching bands with Joshua Ledet reigning as Grand Marshall from the back seat of a Ford convertible on Sampson Street in Westlake. The parade will begin at the Westlake Multi-Purpose Center where he used to work. Viewers are strongly encouraged to bring posters or signs wishing Josh good luck and showing how proud Louisiana is of him.

Then at 6:00 p.m. Saturday at Burton Coliseum on 7001 Gulf Highway in Lake Charles, several bands will perform at a Pep Rally/Concert where Joshua Ledet will song for his fans.

A tradition at the Idol homecoming concert is for a designated official to receive a text message detailing which song the judges have chosen for the semi-finalists to sing in the upcoming show.
