Caleb Johnson Performs with KISS on American Idol Finale — WATCH VIDEO!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss



Caleb Johnson rocked out with none other that KISS on the “American Idol” finale on Wednesday. They had everyone on their feet with “Love Gun” and “Shout It Out Loud.” The finalist even wagged his tongue in the band’s trademark style.

After the performance, Johnson’s brother came out in full makeup, looking exactly like the members of the iconic group. Last week we found out that Johnson’s brother loves KISS. Seems like this special performance was a win-win for both Johnsons.

The 22-year-old contestant had the honor of performing with the legendary act as an award for making it to the Top 2 of season 13. As Gossip Cop reported, Johnson went up against Jena Irene on Tuesday, going three rounds during the first part of the season finale.

Johnson can always be counted on to rock out. He previously performed songs this season from other hard rock acts like Led Zeppelin. We imagine, however, that he enjoyed being able to really let loose here without the pressure of being judged for his performance. The votes are locked in, and in just a matter of time, there’ll be a new “American Idol.”
