VIDEO: James Durbin rocks Carole King on American Idol

The Top 6 finalists performed material from the songbook of Carole King on this week’s edition of American Idol.

Rocker James Durbin took on “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?,” which brought rave reviews from the judges.

“I really liked the beginning of that,” said Steven Tyler. “You had me sold on it right at the beginning – when you didn’t play along with it – it was so beautiful. [When] people download that tonight – they’re gonna save that piece, right there.”

“You are going to be the star of the night with that one,” commented Jennifer Lopez. “It was amazing. When I think back - of every single week since we started the Top 13 - James has had a strong week, every single week. He has not blown one week. We talk about consistency on this show, and that’s what’s gonna win it.”

“Tonight, you weren’t just a great rock singer,”
said Randy Jackson, “Tonight, you proved that you are a great singer. That was, I think, one of the performances of the last couple of months. Not only the performance of the night and, you know what I think, guys, this guy just might win the whole thing.”
