Almost every season, there’s a shocking fourth place finisher on American Idol. And, last night, James Durbin was the contestant who joined the ranks of Tamyra Gray, Chris Daughtry, and LaToya London by finishing just short of Idol‘s hometown visits.

Check out his exit performance embedded after the jump. Warning: Bring the Kleenex.
