'American Idol': James Durbin is 'Everything' on a Paul McCartney Classic (VIDEO)

James Durbin, 'American Idol'James Durbin is definitely in this thing to win it. After blowing everyone away last week on 'American Idol' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX) with a Judas Priest classic, he pulled us in an entirely different direction this week with an equally dominant version of Paul McCartney's 'Maybe I'm Amazed.'

The power of his voice was still evident, but so was the beautiful quality and the tenderness in his natural tone. That's something we haven't seen a lot of from him.

"You have what the greatest rock singers have, and that's a melodic quality to your voice," Jennifer Lopez said. "It's just ... everything."

Was James Durbin "everything" for you? Who do you think was the best of the night?

"Maybe I'm Amazed" has always been one of my favorite McCartney songs. Now I'm afraid that if I hear McCartney singing it again, I'll think "pretty good, but not as good as James Durbin". That was amazing; and live, too! I wanna buy the studio version of that!
