Watch Caleb Johnson Sing “Chain of Fools” in American Idol 2014 Top 8 — April 2, 2014
Can you believe that in just over a month we'll have ourselves a winner for Season 13 of American Idol? We can't either, but you know what they say: Time flies when you’re having fun! After saying goodbye to the adorable Majesty Rose last week, we’re one step closer to meeting our new champion. Who will walk away with the crown? We have our guess, but only time will truly tell!
Tonight (April 2), the eight remaining hopefuls go head-to-head in hopes of winning America’s votes. The singers really have the chance to show how much they’ve grown throughout the competition, as they’ve been tasked with singing the songs they first performed in their auditions.
Seventh to take the stage is Caleb Johnson, who — after getting eliminated from the Top 42 during Season 10 — came back and wowed the judges with his rendition of “Chain of Fools” in Atlanta. Caleb’s performing this Aretha Franklin classic once again, and as usual, plans to blow everyone away with his power and soul.
“You deliver every week,” Keith says as the audience goes wild. “You are a blues warrior, you are a soul conquer, you are a rock-n-roll viking!”
Harry certainly acknowledges Caleb’s talent as well, but also has some advice for the singer. “I would love if you did something that wasn’t so loud... just once. Freddy Mercury, Robert Plant, all the great rock singers — at times in their careers when they sang something softly. We’ve heard about 10 times of you belting it. Let’s hear something else next week.”
Do you think Caleb deserves to make it to the Top 7? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
