Durbin rocked out a version of “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting,” one of the heaviest tracks off of 1973’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” double album.
Following the departure of two contestants on Thursday night’s results show, the Santa Cruz Kid survives another week and moves on as part of the Top 9.
The American Idol finale is set for May 25.
