C'mon. Compare Adam singing "Whole Lotta Love" with James singing it -- there is a you tube of James singing it. What short memories you Idol watchers have. Adam absolutely killed the rock songs he sang two years ago on that show as well as on his tour of over 100 sold out venues in 2010. My favorite male this year is Casey Abrams -- has amazing pipes, wonderful sense of humor and plays at least three instruments. Adam not likeable? Are you kidding me? He is the sweetest, most humble guy on the planet. I wish all of the Season 10 contestants well as they are a very talented group. My money is on either Casey or Pia to win the title!
he tends to be "copying" a few adam things....he has a good voice and i hope he takes his own direction...BUT if he comes out next week with glitter on his eyes ..i give up!!
Its so refreshing to see a person who already has suffered so many trials in life to keep his head up and follow his dreams. Its a good lesson for us all. Dont let life get you down cause you CAN suceed. Plus he's amazingly talented...
Come on, people. This is nothing more than karaoke rock and roll. To even start to compare James Durbin to Adam Lambert would be like trying to compare William Hung to Clay Aiken... Adam's vocal ability is far superior to this screamer... stop with the Adam comparisons.. it really sheds an undesirable light on a truly amazing singer like Adam.
He and Adam might have the same range but the similarities end there. James (this is my first time seeing him) is an authentic rocker. Adam gives you an illusion of a rocker. Big difference.
From what I heard before, I wasn't that impressed with him, But he def impressed me last night. I thought he did a tremendous job.
He did far better than I expected. That being said... I loved the audience reaction at the end. Half of the audience was like... do we really have to stand up for that? lol
During the Hollywood Rounds I fear that James Durbin will be shattered by his off screaming but tonight he stand out. One of the best performance of the night and I think it will bring him to the top 12. Moreover, this performance reminds me of Adam's energetic and lively performances especially Born to Be Wild (but of course that performance of Adam is far off better than this). Well Done James Durbin! You deserve a spot!
I really don't get the Lambert comparison. Lambert tried to pass himself off as a rock god but showed that he's really only a pop princess. If Lambert wants to be a rock god, he needs to take lessons from James Durbin. James Durbin IS rock and roll, Adam Lambert is, well, I don't know what he is.
James is the best on the show and that is saying something. A lot of great talent this year. Has my vote all the way. Keep on rockin James, you are incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So much better than what I expected, he didn't butcher the melody and he didn't have any "oh my god" off notes like he usually does. It's almost like he took advice.
Also Judas Priest hell yes. I hope he continues to be like this.
Difference between James and Adam is that Adam has a amazing glamrock-ish voice, but he decides to use that strength to infuse it with a pop sound.
James on the other hand, is all the way metal. Both have amazing voices, with Adam having more control, and that's the reason why he is so versatile.
I can't imagine James pulling of a Mad World (yet).
I love it! I don't think he's JUST like Adam, though. While I think Adam is great, Adam was clearly more comfortable as a theatrical kind of artist. I'm excited because James Durbin is a rockstar to the core.
i can't get over the video online of him and his band singing about sex with women and whores - he's playing america on idol
Because, Hawk, that's what glamberts do. After almost 3 years of it, I can assure you, that's what glamberts do.
That's funny, Adam himself said James performance was badass!
Why are all of the Adam fans so butt hurt over James? He's not trying to be Adam he is just being himself. They have some similarities however he has been singing metal like Priest, Dio, Zepplin, etc. for years. If Adam is as great as you all think then why do you feel the need to tear down James for doing what he loves and doing it well?
I would never insult James by comparing him to Adam.
James has likeability. Adam doesn't which makes ALL the difference in the world and why Adam lost.
Adam was the queen of screaming!
I agree. Let James Durbin be James Durbin. No need to compare. At least right now he knows when to use the high notes. I hope he'll be in the Top 12
