Caleb Lee Hutchinson Has Lost 70 Pounds Since His Audition

Caleb Hutchinson Weight Loss

When Caleb Lee Hutchinson took the stage Sunday for week two of American Idol’s top 24 rounds, viewers probably noticed something different about the 19-year-old country singer.

Caleb has lost a whopping 70 pounds since his audition, and while he always looked and sounded like a Nashville star, at any size, he exhibited a newfound swagger as he crooned Thomas Rhett’s sexy love ballad, “Die A Happy Man.” His confident performance practically felt like it should’ve been airing on the ACM Awards over on CBS

Host Ryan Seacrest asked about Caleb’s new look, to which Caleb laughingly responded, “I just thought, ‘Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if, like, I drank water and walked very night?’ The more the Instagram picture-likes went up, the more I wanted to hit the treadmill.’”

Caleb has hit the ground running this Idol season, figuratively speaking. From his first audition, his super-deep voice earned comparisons to Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery, and this week, mentor Bobby Bones invited Scotty to surprise Caleb. It felt like a torch-passing moment. However, when Caleb performed Sunday, he didn’t sound like a Scotty impersonator: “That voice, when you open your mouth, it’s crystal-clear identity the first time you hit the note,” observed Lionel Richie.

Patti Myers I’m not a country music fan but this guy has a great voice! Best of luck to him. I agree that a better song choice would of brought out more of who he is.

Jenna Smith His voice is great, like the judges said he didn't have to dance around, wear sparkly far out things. His was raw talent, true talent!

Ella Baroudi I thought he sounded just like I turned on a country station on the radio and heard him sing.

Maranda Fisher Love his voice and he definitely reminds me of my baby Scotty McCreery  he was alittle shaky during some parts of the song but he was still really good!

Shelley Stanek Not a real fan of his monotone voice. He just sounds like he's trying to imitate someone else, whether it be Scotty McCleary (sp?), or Garth Brooks. There's just nothing special about him, love Team Caleb Hutchinson Shirt
