LAKE CHARLES (AP) — "American Idol" finalist Joshua Ledet's performance of the National Anthem before Saturday's kickoff between McNeese State and Central Arkansas has been canceled.
McNeese spokeswoman Candace Townsend said Friday that Ledet's management said the appearance was canceled "due to unforeseen
circumstances." She says no further explanation was given and that no plans were made to refund tickets to the game.
Ledet, a Westlake native, made it to the top three on this year's nationally televised talent competition. He was best known on the show for his renditions of "It's a Man's Man's Man's World" and "When a Man Loves a Woman."
Townsend says the Pride of McNeese Marching Band will fill the slot and perform the National Anthem at the conclusion of the pregame show.
Kickoff is at 7 p.m.

Title: Josh Ledet
I hate to hear that he will not be there because I would imagine a lot of people planned on being there to hear and see him....And I hope that whatever the reason he won't be there that there is nothing seriously wrong.
