Caleb Johnson slayed it on “American Idol” on Wednesday, for the second week in a row.

Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez both gave the contestant a standing ovation for his intense performance of “Working Man” by Rush.

“First of all, you seriously are one of the best singers I’ve heard in a long, long time,” declared Urban. “You have an amazing gift.”

Lopez told Johnson, “I love you. You’re what I’ve been waiting for all night.”

Harry Connick Jr. praised the rocker for being “unquestionably the most consistent of any performer on the show,” but pushed him to be unpredictable and asked, “What can you bring to rock and roll to push it forward?”

Lopez responded that she thinks Johnson will get to show more sides of himself in time.

“People are going to get to really appreciate the amazing voice you do have,” she said, adding, “Great job, tonight.”
