James Durbin Comes Home to Santa Cruz

Local American Idol contestant, James Durbin, was eliminated this past week, making him ineligible for the spectacular homecomings that Idol and Fox put on for the top three. But Santa Cruz persisted and insisted, and got permission to bring James back for the day and sing a few songs to over 20,000 fans gathered at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. This video begins with a smaller crowd at an afternoon event at the Louden Nelson Community Center, where James met with an (invitation only) crowd of old friends and the Kids on Broadway group he used to be a part of. The second half is the homecoming celebration on the stage at the Boardwalk.
