"Don't Stop Believing." James hasn't.
James Durbin performed "Don't Stop Believing" with Steel Panther at the House of Blues on June 13.
Do you need to lose weight?
Live in Los Angeles?
Then you can can enter this weird contest where you will somehow join James and his pal Stefano Langone in Dr. Drew's summer weight loss thing.
But hurry if you're interested-- the deadline is June 20.
James embraces his freakiness on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
It was both fascinating and inspiring to watch James Durbin appear on The Ellen Degeneneres Show. Both James and Ellen are people who have broken down walls of bigotry. Ellen was the star of her own very successful situation comedy when she came out as gay, and her show was canceled the next year.
James is the first star performer to be open about his neurodiversity from the very start of his career. I think one of the reasons Adam Lambert may have said some negative things about James is that he is jealous that Durbin had the integrity to be open about who he was from the start of his American Idol, and that he was allowed to be by Fox. Adam was only able to come out as gay after losing on American Idol.
This is very sad, but I will choose to look on the bright side:
I do not have to watch American Idol anymore, and James is going to be a bigger star than whoever wins.
"Man, I worked so damn hard to get here," Durbin said. "And ... God, I was really hoping to get there, but I had a feeling today. ... I did so much stuff that's never been done on this show before. ... In my eyes, in my mind and what I believe is that I did what I came here to do, and that was to give metal a chance," he said, his voice cracking, his face wet with tears. "And to bring it and give 110 percent every week!"
Face it-- James Durbin is a rock star.
Aspergian Idol James Durbin kept up his journey to the top with strong renditions of "Don't Stop Believing" and "Love Potion Number 9." He even got some tips from Lady Gaga (and his hips did look great tonight as a result).
He's a star. We love him.
Here's a Storify about what's up with American's Aspergian Idol today. It's his son Hunter's birthday. Which of Daddy's friends will go bye-bye?
