Caleb Johnson Shows Softer Side With “Faithfully” by Journey [VIDEO]

Caleb Johnson finally bowed to the wishes of the American Idol judges to show off his softer side for the Top 8 performances round 2 show on Wednesday night. Taking a break from his usual hard rock edge, Caleb chose to sing “Faithfully” by Journey for 80’s week. We have to say, we loved it.


While we really had been hoping Caleb Johnson would possibly tackle some Meat Loaf or Freddie Mercury/Queen for 80’s week, there is still plenty of time for him to show off more of his rock n’ roll mastery.

What he gave us tonight instead is proof that he can sing more than just hard rock. His voice isn’t just about belting over the scream of loud guitars, it’s also equally as gorgeous on a love song.

You can also take a listen to the studio version of Caleb’s song choice this week below.

  1. Wow. Someone collaborate with Caleb to write some new originals! He deserves a good chance to make it in the industry as more than a cover or niche singer, if he wants it.

  2. I said it before and again say it. Whenever he (Caleb) sings watch Jennifer Lopez. He brings it all out in her, a huge expression of sexy. Caleb will win this year’s Idol and the producer will miss a big opportunity if they do not somehow bring Jennifer in on it when that happens.
