Rush fan Caleb Johnson wins American Idol season 13
9:30AM EST | comments |

Caleb JohnsonBack on Wednesday, March 5th American Idol contestant Caleb Johnson called Rush his favorite band of all time and then proceeded to belt out a truncated, 2-minute version of Rush's Working Man as his choice of song for the show's Home Week, impressing both the fans and judges with his soulful performance. Last night on the show - nearly 3 months later - Johnson was crowned the winner of American Idol's 13th season. You can watch Caleb's introductory segment and performance of Working Man below or at this location. In the beginning of the segment Caleb explains his choice of Working Man for his Home Week song, telling stories about his hometown and the personal relevance of Rush and the song to him. He concludes his segment by saying that, I'm really excited and thrilled to sing some Rush on American Idol.

There's also this post-show interview with Caleb where he responds to the judge's comments and talks about his love of Rush. Johnson will be releasing a solo album this August.
