'American Idol': James Durbin Rocks Judas Priest, Gets Judges Cursing and Dancing (VIDEO)

James Durbin clearly set out to establish himself as a genuine rocker in this first voting round of 'American Idol' (Tue., 8PM on FOX). In a group of strong guys, he's stood out from the beginning with his impressive vocal range, but at times he would tend to oversing a bit in an effort to show off what he could do.
Tackling Judas Priest's "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," Durbin managed to both rein in his bad tendencies of showing off while still spotlighting his incredible range and power. As such, it was a beautifully controlled performance that immediately knocked the curse words right out of Steven Tyler's mouth.
"That was f****** crazy good!" Tyler shouted, confirming suspicions that he would likely drop bombs on the live shows. He even came equipped with his own 'Idol' logo to cover his mouth with.
