Get Over It: The James Durbin Edition!

Lady Gaga on American Idol

James Durbin (aka the Adam Lambert wannabe) is speaking out about how he felt uncomfortable with Lady Gaga‘s mentoring session this past week on American Idol. I haven’t been a big fan of this season but I thought Gaga actually offered up great advice and helped everyone’s performances. The funny thing is that after she showed James how to move his hips, he ended up not taking her advice during his performance of Love Potion No. 9, and guess what? James was voted off the following night! He probably should have listened to Gaga rather than being all uncomfortable, so to James I say, GET OVER IT!

For Lady Gaga’s millions of “little monsters,” an instructional hands-on dance with the megastar would’ve been a dream come true. But for American Idol contestant James Durbin, being manhandled by the singer was more like an on-air nightmare. When James didn’t move his hips enough for Gaga’s liking while performing Love Potion No. 9, on the May 11th episode, she put her hands on his waist and showed him how to better dance to the beat.

“I didn’t like it,” James tells Life & Style about his too-close-for-comfort brush with Gaga. “It was unexpected and very uncomfortable. To sum it up in one word: awkward!” The rocker was kicked off Idol the next night and judge Jennifer Lopez broke down in tears after the announcement. SOURCE
