Caleb Johnson Makes Jennifer Lopez Head Bang on American Idol — WATCH HERE!
Caleb Johnson brought down the house on “American Idol” on Wednesday. The Top 5 contestant gave perhaps his most intense performance yet (and that’s saying something!) with the fan-chosen “Still of the Night” by Whitesnake.
Viewers of the FOX music competition were able to vote online before the show to determine which songs each of the five remaining contenders should sing. It seems “Still of the Night” fit Johnson perfectly. He had Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez both out of their seats dancing and head-banging as the audience went beyond wild.
“Absolutely awesome, Caleb. Dude, it was killer,” Urban said afterward. “I can’t even get a word in; the crowd’s going crazy.” Lopez told Johnson, “I love the band when they perform with you. They cannot wait. It is so much fun. The energy between all of you — they know they have a real lead singer up there.”
And Harry Connick Jr. pointed out, “You just can’t sing that song any better than that. You heard the crowd.” “Congratulations,” added the judge. “Fantastic job.”
Johnson has been a front runner seemingly since the live episodes of season 13 began. His detractors, however, have likened his performances to a wannabe rocker who belongs in a cover band. The judges clearly would not agree with that assessment. Check out the video below!
