After the Carole King performance night April 27, I’m confident James Durbin will go all the way to the end of the competition! Who do YOU think is the front runner?

I’ve been a Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina fan from day one, but after Carole King night on American Idol April 27, James Durbin has my vote to win the whole thing.

The young rocker belted it out to “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” and had me captivated from his first breath. Instead of using flashy props, James simplified his performance, beginning the piece a cappella.

After his flawless performance, the judges raved. Jennifer Lopez admitted James has been the only consistently flawless performer in the competition and Randy Jackson freaked out, predicting, “This guy might win the whole thing!”

Meanwhile, the other five contestants held their own. Honestly, no one made enough mistakes to warrant his or her good bye April 28. Everyone was strong in his or her own way.

How did YOU feel about James’s performance? Do you think he’s going to win? Sound off below!
