Watch: James Durbin Sings Sammy Hagar’s “Heavy Metal” on April 13

James Durbin butted heads with the mentors over his “Heavy Metal” song choice. “Give metal a chance, America,” James begged before wailing on stage. The face-melting solos and the “outstanding” vocals won over the judges, who all thought we could totally be on our way to having a metal Idol.

WATCH James Durbin perform “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” from last week’s episode.
