James Durbin gave another great performance today, and it is always impressive to see what someone on the autism spectrum is capable of. This guys is amazing. I am really impressed by his choice today. He shed his rocker aspect a little bit and sang Paul McCartney and showed us that he has a great deal of range.
Anyway, I really look forward to seeing what else he brings to the table in future episodes. So, let's make sure that we keep him the competition by showing our continued support. Remember, when you vote for James Durbin, you are not just voting for a great talent, but you are also voting for the autism community as a whole. If James makes it very far in the competition that can also mean more and better publicity for the autism community, especially in regards to Asperger's Syndrome which I feel anyway doesn't get the media attention it deserves.
However, with that said, I think James Durbin is an incredible talent, and I look forward to seeing how he grows and evolves as the show continues.
