This week’s American Idol 2011 theme is “Year You Were Born,” and 20-year-old James Durbin is certainly a unique contestant. He’s had a hard life, as his father (also a musician) died of a drug overdose when Durbin was only 9. Durbin has also been diagnosed with Asperger’s (a form of Autism) and Tourette’s, so he has idiosyncratic symptoms like facial tics, and a bit of an awkward demeanor.

However, despite having to deal with a lot growing up, James Durbin has worked hard to get to where he’s at in life, right now. Durbin’s Idol choice genres can best be described as rock, and heavy metal. But Durbin has also already performed 2 songs by the Beatles, and last week he performed Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed.” So I’m thinking that Durbin will stay true to The Beatles and perform “Got My Mind Set on You,” by George Harrison.

What are your thoughts? Don’t forget to tune into Fox at 8pm tonight, to see how James Durbin does live on American Idol 2011!
