LOS ANGELES — The judges on “American Idol” definitely love somebody, and his name is Joshua Ledet.

While the panel lauded each of the five finalists remaining in the Fox singing competition, the judges once again reserved the highest praise during Wednesday night’s installment for the powerful, 20-year-old gospel singer from Westlake, La.

Ledet wowed the panel during the 1960s-themed first round with The Temptations’“Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” and then nearly brought judge Jennifer Lopez to tears with his restrained rendition of the Bee Gees’“To Love Somebody” during the second round of British pop tunes.
