Ledet safe after an ‘American Idol’ shocker

American Idol judges and fans were in disbelief after America voted Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez and Elise Testone to the bottom on American Idol.

On Thursday the fate was put into the judges hands who had one save left for the season.

"I've never seen this happen," judge Randy Jackson said of having two front runners Sanchez and Ledet in the bottom with Testone. "This is a ridiculous bottom three [America] got it wrong tonight, so wrong." 

Sanchez ended up with the lowest number of votes. As she performed her last-chance song, Lopez shouted, "Gimme that mic! This is crazy you ain't going home! Go sit down!" 

The seven contenders will battle it out next Wednesday.
