Season 10 fourth place finalist James Durbin will guest on Friday's "Idol Hangover," The Hollywood Reporter's original American Idol web show.

And there's certainly plenty to talk about when it comes to this week's competition, including the shocking elimination of Jessica Sanchez, followed by an immediate save by the judges.

Also raising eyebrows -- and the hair on the arms of audience members -- was Durbin's own performance of "Higher Than Heaven," off his debut album Memories of a Beautiful Disaster. We'll talk to the proud metalhead about his new hair and why it's important for Idol to rock. 

Have a question for James? Tweet it to @Idol_Worship by 10:00 a.m. PST and yours may be asked during the show.
