James Durbin: On Fire!

by at . Comments

Is there any doubt now that James Durbin is a rock star?

The American Idol finalist started his Elton John cover (of "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting") in the crowd last night, eventually making his way on to the stage, belting out the lyrics - and leaping off the piano just as it caught fire.

A bit of a gimmick? Sure. But entertaining and unexpected, as well.

Randy actually summed James up well with the following critique after the quasi rock concert: "You enjoy yourself; that's the greatest thing about any performer performing."

wow that performance was great! my only critique is he still needs a little work on breath control. sometimes hes a little shaky cuz he forgets to breath right. hes really good though!


he sounds a hot mess with all that screaming and if he make it big he should get those ears pined back.


James was unreal. I found myself smiling all the way through the performance. He is a great entertainer and that is what seperates him from the others. Sure they are very talented singers, but James is an entertainer. That's the difference. If he was voted off, could you imagine how boring it would be without him? Plus, the man can SING!
