Idoloonies: James Durbin Talks Flaming Pianos, Metal 'Revolution,' 'Waterworld' Inspiration

James Durbin wants to lead a heavy-metal revolution for today’s youth, but he doesn’t take himself so seriously that he can’t laugh about his goals. American Idol‘s Season 10 fourth-place finisher sat down for an Idoloonies interview and talked about how he wrote a storyboard to plan for his “Saturday Night’s All Right for Fighting” performance, why he stood up against Jimmy Iovine about his right to rock, who he wanted to strangle after watching Season 10’s Hollywood Week episodes, and which of his performances benefitted from him catching a cold. Press play below for all that plus references to The Book of Eli, Adam Lambert, Bo Bice, American Chopper, and Zakk Wylde.
