In addition to getting to dance with Lady Gaga, James Durbin took to the stage during the “American Idol” Top 4 and slayed his second performance. He has easily come out the best of the four finalists left.
His “Love Potion No. 9” was an odd choice to us (at first). But he proved us very, very wrong. It completely rocked. He managed to make a very dated song sound extremely current (and hard-core and manly).
The judges loved it. J.Lo expressed the same trepidation about James handling the Leiber and Stoller songbook choices, but admits she was completely wrong to doubt him after that performance. So is it just a matter of who joins James in the finals now?
