Best: James Durbin Performs With Judas Priest, Season 10

Metalheads tuned in for James Durbin during season 10 of American Idol to see how far he could push the envelope for hard rock on the show. He first caught their attention during his top 24 performance, when he sang Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Comin'". Later in the season he was able to pull off renditions of Sammy Hagar's "Heavy Metal" and 30 Seconds to Mars' "Closer to the Edge."
