James Durbin Goes Home On American Idol!

Looks like the Daughtry curse claimed James Durbin tonight.  I am shocked.  After delivering too solid performances last night and being a front-runner most of the season I did not expect this.  James said he had a feeling today.  I thought James would win 😦

Scotty, Lauren and Haley will advance toward the finale. 

Performances tonight were a videos by Gaga and Steve Tyler and live performances by Enrique Iglesias and Jordin Sparks.

My only consolation is that James will have the success that Chris Daughtry has had.  I would pay good money to attend a James Durbin concert.

James you are amazing and I know you will do great things.  Rock on!
