After making a name for himself rocking "American Idol" viewers, James Durbin is taking it to the people. On the road for the current "Idol" tour - which kicked off last week in West Valley City, Utah - Durbin is delivering the goods once again, if the YouTube videos popping up from the first few shows are any indication. The top 11 contestants make up the stage show, which hits more than 40 cities across North America between now and September. Looks like James is performing songs by Muse and Guns N' Roses in his short set, in addition to his duties joining other Idol singers for medleys and various tracks. Durbin created a buzz in the rock community after being the first Idol contestant to embrace hard rock and heavy metal on the reality show contest. From his opening week cover of Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Coming" to having Zakk Wylde join him for a Sammy Hagar tune... and then actually joining Priest for the series' finale, Durbin grew stronger throughout the program while stealing every episode with his voice and command of the stage.
