James Durbin Asks: Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

by at . Comments

No flaming pianos, no heavy metal last night for James Durbin on American Idol. Just a stirring take on the Shirelles' "Will You Still Love Tomorrow."

The audience went bonkers. They will indeed love him today.

"Carole King and James Durbin were made to come together," says coach Jimmy Iovine, adding that "James is 100 percent a child of rock 'n' roll."

That's extremely high praise, but not altogether unwarranted. Watch him sing the tune in a cappella, then build up to a terrific finish below ...

We said that James is the man to beat yesterday, and this isn't about to change our minds. But, as always, it all comes down to voter turnout.
