Short bio: 

Caleb Johnson was born April 23, 1991 in Johnson City, TN, but grew up in Asheville, NC. Johnson started his career in 2010 with a rock band called Elijah Hooker as the lead singer, and first auditioned for
the tenth season of American Idol in 2011. He went through to Hollywood Week, but that's as far as he made it. In 2012, Johnson auditioned for the eleventh season and made it to the Top 42. He had difficulties in his performance of "Old Time Rock and Roll" and was cut at the Top 24 selection.

Johnson auditioned again in 2014 for the thirteenth season and made it to the top 20. In the semifinal round, he was voted by America into the top five male contestants, giving him a spot in the season's top 13. Johnson got positive feedback from the judges every week, had strong performances, and became the only finalist in the season to never land in the bottom 3 prior to reaching the finale. Johnson is the first hard rock and heavy metal singer to win American Idol and the second winner to have auditioned two times prior to winning American Idol.

His first solo album is set for release August 12, 2014.
