Following in the tradition of past American Idols, the Season 11 Top 3 singers are heading home this weekend for a hero’s welcome. Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips, and Jessica Sanchez made the cut last night on American Idol 2012 and now they’ll reap the rewards for a hometown extravaganza on Saturday.
Joshua Ledet will travel to Westlake, LA where he’ll be greeted by a parade down Sampson Street starting around noon. Later that day at 6PM you’ll be able to find Joshua at the Burton Coliseum at 7001 Gulf Hwy in Lake Charles, LA. There you’ll have a chance at a free concert with live entertainment including a few performances by Ledet himself.
Phillip Phillips won’t be far away when he heads back to Leesburg, GA for his homecoming tour with a few extra bells and whistles. The Leesburg City Council has already announced Saturday will officially be “Phillp Phillips Day” in his hometown. Phillip will be honored with copies of this proclamation before launching a parade at 2:30 PM. You’ll be able to find the parade along Main Street before concluding at the Lee County High School stadium. Phillips is scheduled to perform for what county officials expect to be a huge gathering.
Jessica Sanchez doesn’t have far to travel when she returns to Chula Vista for her own hometown adventures. A parade for Sanchez begins at 10:15AM and will travel down Eastlake Parkway to the Eastlake High School. Wait a second. Eastlake? Joshua is heading to Westlake. Sounds like a good ol’ fashioned Lake Wars in the making! Anyway, Jessica will perform for fans at 11:30AM with seating provided first-come, first-serve starting at 9AM at the Eastlake school stadiums.
Congratulations to all three of the remaining American Idol 2012 finalists for their achievements in making it this far. If you live nearby any of these events then the chance to catch a free concert would be well worth the trip. Be sure to send us pictures to share if you attend any of the homecoming events.
