Video: Chatting with 'American Idol' finalist James Durbin

March 6, 2011 | 11:52 am

After Thursday night's show, Pop & Hiss caught up with the 13 chosen "American Idol" finalists, who were immediately (and we mean immediately) thrust into the spotlight of flashing lights and eager reporters looking for a sound bite from America's new darlings at an after party thrown in their honor Thursday night at the Grove. 

Check out video interviews of them all. We chat about favorite artists, inspirations, who they'd love to cover if given the chance (Black Keys! Esperanza Spalding! Beyonce! Usher?) and if they think they have what it takes to walk away with the crown this year.
