Jennifer Lopez sobbed after rocker James Durbin was voted off 'American Idol' by viewers last night (15.05.11).
The judge was clearly distraught by viewers' choice to vote off the 22-year-old rocker, leaving Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina and Haley Reinhart in the final three.
James - who suffers from Tourettes syndrome and describes himself as a high-functioning autistic - was also in floods of tears upon hearing he was eliminated but said he was glad to have had the opportunity to introduce a different genre of music to the show.
He said: "I worked so damn hard and I was hoping to get there. But I did so much stuff that's never been done on the show.
"I did what I came here to do, and that was to give metal a chance."
