Joshua Ledet & Phillip Phillips Duet On Idol Reveals Joshua's Fear Of His Sexuality
On tonight`s top five performance show Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips sang together. Usually when American Idol contestants sing in a duo or a trio, the performances are forgettable and they don`t reveal much about about the young artists. But this performance revealed a lot about Joshua, and why he won`t win American Idol.
Before they sang Phillip and Joshua were in a playful mood. "I am dreading it", Phillip said facetiously, and Joshua joked that they were just given the song.
"You`ve Lost That Loving Feeling" is a classic pop song, and the young men, especially Joshua, nailed it. At the end of the song as a sign of camaraderie, celebration and youthful exuberance Phillip put his arm around Joshua`s shoulders, and the soulful crooner pushed him away.
Needless to say there was nothing sexual about Phillip`s embrace, we see athletes do the same thing after a superlative play. A quarterback and his favorite wide receiver will embrace after they connect on a thrilling touchdown.
Joshua needs to loosen up, dude are you so afraid of your sexual orientation that you don`t even want to be seen playfully embracing a guy?
