James Durbin Rocks
the Lives of Those Living with Tourette Syndrome


The 21-year-old from California is competing on “American Idol” as part of the Top 24

The TSA is excited to spread the word about James Durbin, who after auditioning and successfully making it past several rounds on "American Idol" has made it to Hollywood to compete in the “Top 24” of the highly popular TV singing competition show.

He wowed judges on last night’s show by singing Judas Priest’s “You Got Another Thing Coming," but wowed America even more with his personal story about living with Tourette Syndrome as well as Asperger’s..

With an average of over 33 million viewers, “American Idol” has provided unprecedented worldwide awareness of Tourette Syndrome through James’ appearances and openness about his disorder.
Please check the TSA Facebook page for any developments about James and let's all hope he makes it to the Top 12 when the finalists are announced live on Thursday’s show!
