    James has it it all, the voice, stage presence,connects with the audience, he can sing anything not just rock. Beverly is very good but James won this one hands down!

    James without a doubt. I remember when “Love Potion Number 9″ came out and I always thought it was a silly song. Not so anymore after watching James make that song his own.

    I love both of them and find them to be powerful performers. Yes, James should have been on the match up for the Idol finale and probably won. Lauren was great, but James had the chops and stage presence. As for Voice’s Beverly, well she’s my favorite. We so often see powerful guys sing, but she just has such a great personna, sexy, dominate on stage, humble and just plain amazing. Go Beverly!

    Definitely Beverly McClellan! She has her own style and her voice is very distinquishable. James Durbin brings nothing new to heavy metal. Sure he brought some to AI, but that was it. He doesn’t stand out among the crowd.

    James is definitely the better singer and performer. He has a voice that would be hard to top and such topnotch stage presence. You get totally submerged in his performances when you watch and listen to him. He has “heart” and “feeling” in his voice. Hope and pray he has a phenominal career. He deserves it after getting booted from Idol.

    James Durbin is Rockstar heaven

    I think most people are impressed by James Durbin, because they are unaware of the “original” heavy metal version of Love Potion nr. 9 by the Tygers of Pan Tang.

    Then James becomes far less surprising and just a run of the mill imitator.

    So it is Beverly, due to her good performance, but in particular her joy in rocking the show.

    James Durbin from Cougar !!!

    You’ve got to be kidding me. You can’t even compare them. James Durbin has an incredible voice with an effortless insane range, this person is squeezing the upper range and is barely heard in the lower range. Who had the brilliant idea to even put them next to each other like that? James is a well rounded brilliant artist where every move, every detail of his appearance makes sense. He should have won really this year, but that’s another conversation.
