Caleb Lee Hutchinson is among the contestants who auditioned for ABC’s new version of ‘American Idol.’

He traveled from his hometown of Dallas, Georgia to talk with Hot Topics host Heather Catlin about life after making it past the bus audition.

“I think I suffered a small bit of heat stroke,” joked Hutchinson.

The singer auditioned in Piedmont Park, standing in line for more than 8 hours. It seems as if it was worth it though. According to this ‘American Idol’ spoiler blog, Hutchinson makes it to the top 24.

His audition in front of judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie airs Sunday, March 18 on ABC at 8pm.
