Caleb Johnson from Asheville, North Carolina sang "Working Man" by Rush. He was great and has been every time. Emily Piriz of Miami had another strong vocal performance. Malaya Watson is 15 years old. She was in the bottom 3 last week. Not anymore. We have to talk about Gallatin's Ben Briley who was representing Sumner County Wednesday night. Judges challenged Ben.
