Zakk Wylde Takes American Idol Stage [VIDEO]

This year American Idol has a few new things going for it including James Durbin who continues to bring heavy metal to the forefront.

I have never really watched American Idol.  Mostly I enjoy the first episodes when all the bad people are on.  I have been keeping up a little bit with finalist James Durbin however.  He continues to sing the songs that he wants to sing, and the songs he loves happen to be heavy metal.  I have never seen so much metal on the show.  I was really impressed when he came out and performed Judas Priests “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming”.  He definitely has a heavy metal voice.

That was proven once again last night when he took the stage with legendary heavy metal guitarist Zakk Wylde.  That’s right, Zakk Wylde on American Idol.  I never thought this day would come.  I immediately looked out my window to see if pigs were flying around because I thought that was the only way he would ever go on that program.  I think Durbin has really got the attention of the heavy metal world.

Last night him and Wylde did a rendition of Sammy Hagar’s “Heavy Metal” and holy hell did Durbin sing the crap out of it!  This dude has an incredible vocal range.  The judges loved it too.  I think it’s about time that we got a little heavy metal on Idol.  It is some of the best music out there, and the guys who sing are some of the best in the biz.  Check out the video below for last nights performance.
