The Gentler Side of James Durbin

by at . Comments

Last night's American Idol featured Pia Toscano's performance and then everyone else. Fans and the judges still love some James Durbin, however.

James brought a lot of emotion to The Beatles' "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," showing an entirely different side of a popular, dynamic performer.

The high notes at the end? Maybe not the clincher he'd hoped for. The guitar accompanying him throughout? Slightly off. Just something about it.

Nevertheless, "It's nice to see the other side of you," Jennifer says. "It's so special to watch, and special that you're vulnerable enough to share it."

"I loved seeing the real, true emotional side of James Durbin," Randy added. "I can tell, even in this moment, it's an emotional thing for you."

Did this make your emotions run high? Watch and comment below:
