'American Idol's' Battle of the Sob Stories: Paris Tassin vs. James Durbin (VIDEO)

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Feb 11th 2011 2:31AM
If you've been paying reasonable attention to this season's 'American Idol' you'll notice a few things.

1. In Hollywood the judges drink Vitamin Water (Gasp! Where is the Coke?)
2. The producers are suckers for sob stories.

In a battle royale of tearjerkers, the producers have pitted special needs parent Paris Tassin against unemployed father and Asperger/Tourette Syndrome sufferer, James Durbin.

When Paris broke into Celine Dion's 'My Heart Will Go On,' you knew it was a subliminal message that these two sob stories were both going to cry happy tears in their journey to the 'Idol' stage.

Check it out for yourself!

If you had a sob story you got through. It was very annoying. Thats life kids things happen. If your doing it for anyone but yourself keep it to yourself. It started to get worse than the group hug season of Idol. Last night the group show was really good. Alot of talent and honesty from the judges. I amy start watching more often.
