Joshua Ledet may have been a little emotional after being eliminated on American Idol last night, he was spotted crying back stage and producer Nigel Lythgoe told him, “Chin up! Chin up!” but now the crooner feels relieved.
“I don’t think I was upset about [being eliminated] because I was super happy for Jessica and Phillip,” he said. “I was definitely not upset. I felt relieved a lot of the pressure was off of me and I feel really good. I’m not going to say I was surprised [by my elimination] because Jessica and Phillip are amazing and have huge fan bases and they deserve it. I don’t think I would have cried but when people come up to you and try to comfort you and hugging you then the tears start coming.”
