Caleb Johnson headed into Wednesday’s Top 3 Night on “American Idol” with serious health problems — and still amazed the judges.

Ryan Seacrest brought out the show’s doctor, who revealed the rocker is suffering from bronchitis, sinusitis, and a vocal cord hemorrhage.

But Johnson, thankfully, was still able to go on with the show and performed a three-song set of “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons, and a reprise of “Dazed and Confused” by Led Zeppelin.

Keith Urban celebrated Johnson’s amazing journey, noting, “Can you beleive from auditioning several times and never making it to, to getting to this stage one week before the finale?”

Jennifer Lopez told the singer that “you on your worst night are better than people on the best night,” and Harry Connick Jr. commended Johnson for taking advantage of all the opportunities the show gives him.

In fact, the crowd went completely nuts — as did Urban and Lopez — for “Dazed and Confused.”

“If ever there was a complete moment of miraculous healing, that would’ve been it,” said Urban, with Lopez calling it a “a true ‘Idol’ moment.”
