James Durbin Lives for the City, Brings Down the American Idol House

by at . Comments

James Durbin closed out American Idol last night with the third Steve Wonder single of the evening (following Pia Toscano and Scotty McCreery).

Rocking out like usual to "Living for the City," James threw in some dance steps and sang directly to bassist Bob Babbitt during the bridge. A very cool move that brought down the house.

The audience goes crazy when James is finished, as J. Lo says the audition was "incredible" and Randy labels it "unbelievable." Are we looking at the next American Idol? Sum it up for us, Steven: "I think sometimes it takes a little bit of being crazy to make a difference in this world - and that's what you're all about."
