American Idol alum James Durbin joins THR on the Idol Hangover couch this week to talk about his performance on Thursday’s elimination show, being “the rebel” of season 10 and inspiring fellow Santa Cruz native Chris Rene to audition for X Factor.
The rocker’s endless charm, which delighted millions last year, is on full display during the interview as Durbin offers invaluable advice to the season 11 finalists and performs the song “Right Behind You” for Idol Hangover viewers.
Also on deck: a recap of Durbin’s show at Hollywood’s famed Viper Room Thursday night hours after his American Idol bow, plus he answers fans Twitter questions.
That’s all in part 2 of the episode (watch above); In part 1, special correspondent and Idol alum Didi Benami runs down the week’s hot topic moments with THR music editor Shirley Halperin (watch it here).
Join us next week when season 10 finalist Casey Abrams guests on Idol Hangover and check out episode 6, featuring season 8 winner Kris Allen and songwriter-producer Nasri, below:
