"American Idol": Three remain
Talented James Durbin, 22, of Santa Cruz, Calif., was sent home from "American Idol" Thursday night, leaving three finalists in the singing competition.
In addition to his singing, Durbin was notable as the first openly autistic finalist in the show's 10 seasons.
"I did what I came here to do, and that was to give metal a chance," said Durbin through tears. He told host Ryan Seacrest he "had a feeling today" he was going home.
The "top three," as "Idol" terms them, are:
- Haley Reinhart, 20, Wheeling, Ill.
- Lauren Alaina, 16, Rossville, Ga.
- Scotty McCreery, 17, Garner, N.C.
At this point of the competition the talent is very good and it becomes a popularity contest. I pick the person I would like to spend 2 hours with listening to their concert. I would have picked James. But I'm sure he will have a great career after this experience.
HALEY needed to go home NOT James. What a shame.
