Caleb Johnson won raves for finally showing his softer side on “American Idol” on Wednesday.

The contestant, who normally rocks out in intense performances, gave a chillingly beautiful rendition of “Faithfully.”

“That’s gotta make you feel pretty good,” Harry Connick Jr. said over the crowd’s applause.

He went on, “It was exciting watching you walk out because I think everybody was anticipating two things, one a really strong, consistent powerful vocal and the fact that we’ve always been wanting to hear you sing something with a little more subtlety and that’s exactly what you did.”

“I’ve been waiting for that since the day I met you,” said Connick, adding, “I’m proud of you”

Keith Urban said “Faithfully” was the “perfect song” for Johnson, calling his take “killer.”

“I loved it, man,” he declared.

And Jennifer Lopez said Johnson “sounded amazing,” and while he was vocally flawless on the slower opening, she “couldn’t wait for you to get to the big stuff, because you murder it, and that’s what you did.”
