Judas Priest Leave Door Open To James Durbin Collaboration

(RockAAA) There's been a ton of fan reaction and debate about Judas Priest's appearance on the American Idol finale last Wednesday night, but regardless of which angle you come at it, the band brought heavy metal to a mainstream stage, potentially exposing it to a new audience.

Priest had some help, of course, as they were joined by contestant James Durbin, the 22 year-old from Santa Cruz that has been flying the metal flag on the reality series since he stepped on the Idol stage.

When asked whether there will ever be a collaboration between the fourth-place finalist and Judas Priest, frontman Rob Halford was optimistic, saying, "Yeah, anything's possible. We just wish him all the best, he's got such an extraordinary voice. He's got such a genuine and lovable personality. He's the real deal, James, and we wish him the best. Good for you, James!"
