Former American Idol standout and WWE fanatic James Durbin has become the latest spokesperson for the be a STAR Alliance, an anti-bullying initiative, co-founded by The Creative Coalition and WWE. The American Idol Season Ten fan favorite joins more than 50 national organizations that serve on the be a STAR Alliance including GLAAD, STOMP Out Bullying, Scholastic, Inc and United Federation of Teachers.
For all that remember James Durbin‘s awesome rise on American Idol we all were made aware of the bullying he received while he grew up dealing with Asperger’s Syndrome and Tourette’s Syndrome.

After one of the most competitive nights in ‘American Idol’ history, it was the youngest contestants Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery who stood out to me the most!

Even though James Durbin was dubbed the early Adam Lambert of this season’s American Idol, the talented musician isn’t comfortable with the comparison!
