Engravable gifts to be given to James Durbin?
Engravable gifts could be among the items offered to former American Idol contestant James Durbin as a commiseration.
The singer was voted off the US TV show last night (May 12th), with voters favouring rival Scotty McCreery in an elimination vote.
Durbin appeared shocked as host Ryan Seacrest revealed the results of the poll and judge Jennifer Lopez was moved to tears by the circumstances.
The rock fan had been lauded throughout the 2011 season for his unique choice of guitar-heavy songs, which served as a contrast to the milder pop and R 'n' B offerings of his peers.
Durbin was also praised for the energy he brought to his performances on the show, a talent that is made even more impressive when his autism is taken into account.
Critics have reacted strongly to the news, with the Sodahead blog speculating that he was less relatable than other contestants and fans of the show taking to Twitter to voice their disapproval.
