James Durbin Sets Elton John Night on Fire!

Some artists set the stage on fire figuratively.  American Idol’s James Durbin decided to literally set the stage on fire during tonight’s Elton John tribute show.  Ok…. it was just the piano, but it was on F-I-R-E.

Watch James Durbin set the house on fire at American Idol….


James Durbin once again proved himself to be the true rock star of the season with his performance of the Elton John classic Saturday Night’s Alright.  From the moment he enterred from the top of the audience to the moment he set the piano on fire, James Durbin ruled the stage like only a rock star can.  Of course the judges continued to show the love for the rocker with Steven Tyler declaring the performance “beautiful”, Jennifer Lopez momentarily forgot it was a competition show, and Randy loved how much James enjoys himself on-stage.
