GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The top 10 contestants of American Idol Season 13, including winner and Asheville native Caleb Johnson, took the stage in Greenville on Tuesday night.

Idol fans packed the Peace Center downtown to see the live performance.

Among the crowd were many of Johnson's family members and friends who said they haven't seen much of him since his Idol win. They said they're excited to get the chance to see Johnson in concert, performing on a big stage, during a tour close to home in Asheville.

Also in the crowd was FOX Carolina's Diana Watson. She caught up with Caleb after his performance, and he too said he's glad to be in town.

"It feels wonderful," Johnson said. "Just even being in the vicinity of both Asheville and Greenville has been incredible because I have family here and also family in Asheville. So just getting to see them and perform for them and the fans has just been incredible. It's been awesome."

During the concert, Johnson performed a song called "Fighting Gravity" from his upcoming album "Testify." The album will be released on August 12.

The top 10 tour runs through August 23, making its next stop in Georgia on Thursday.
