James Durbin : Heavy Metal ( ft. Zakk Wylde ) – Sammy Hagar : American Idol Top 8 Movie Week

James Durbin : ” Heavy Metal ” by Sammy Hagar ft. Zakk Wylde on guitar on ” American Idol ” .. songs from the movies on Top 8 week. HOT Performance ! RECAP : James Durbin wins tonight’s song choice competition. Sammy Hagar? From “Heavy Metal”? Love it, James. The mentors? They’re not so pleased. If their job was to help James with his confidence, they pretty much failed poor Jimmy. I adore James’ fidelity to his roots. Unlike Scotty, it’s not like he hasn’t tried other things. He’s displayed quite a bit of range and this just happens to be what he loves. And he just happens to be most excellent at it, especially accompanied by Zakk Wylde shredding it on the guitar. Oh, James Durbin. You’d definitely have made a Top 4 on “Rock Star.” I’m also beginning to think James Durbin is making a strong case to win “American Idol” 1988. Steven, J-Lo and Randy Say: “That felt really, really REAL,” J-Lo raves. J-Lo wants to make it clear that no matter how things sounded at home, everybody was killing it in the theater. “Tonight, you did you,” celebrates Randy. Tyler also a fan. © Video content from “Fremantle International” – American Idol 2011 on FOX (ch.53).
