From staff reports

If Joshua Ledet survives another week on “American Idol,” he will make a Westlake homecoming Saturday.

Ledet, a 20-year-old Westlake High School graduate, is in show’s final four along with Hollie Cavanagh, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez.

The Southwest Louisiana Convention and Visitors Bureau announced late Tuesday that if Ledet advances, a parade and homecoming pep rally will be held Saturday.

The parade, down Sampson Street in Westlake, would begin at 2:30 p.m.

The pep rally would begin at 6 p.m. at Burton Coliseum and feature live entertainment and several songs by Ledet.

Ledet may also make a special appearance at Contraband Days, the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau said.

The Convention and Visitor’s Bureau also sent out a news release requesting volunteers to work Saturday.

Residents can vote for Ledet after this week's performance show, which is set to air from 7-9 p.m. tonight. The 'Idol' field will be whittled down to three during Thursday's elimination show, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.

The Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau said a viewing party is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Westlake Multi-Purpose Complex, 1221 Sampson St.

The Convention & Visitors Bureau also offered the following tips on how to vote.

Ledet will have his own toll-free number. To vote, watch the show and call the number assigned to him 9-11 p.m. Votes are unlimited.

Only AT&T customers can vote via text. They can do so by texting the word “vote” to Ledet’s SMS/text message short code number, which is shown on the program each Wednesday. Votes are unlimited.

Residents with Facebook accounts can vote online at www.americanidol.com. After you vote, you can post how you voted to your Facebook page. Online voting is limited to 50 votes per account.
