NEWS: Zakk Wylde to rock American Idol

Now this I gotta see. Zakk Wylde will be on American Idol tonight performing with James Durbin. I’m not sure what they’re gonna play but it’s sure to be heavy and laden with many a pinch harmonic. Will they do an Ozzy or Sabbath song? Or something else? Tune in to find out! [EDIT: The performance just happened and they played “Heavy Metal” by Sammy Hagar. Vote for James and Zakk here!]. Zakk tried to get on Dancing With The Stars recently but didn’t make the list – maybe this’ll push him over the edge for next season.

Durbin tweeted from rehearsals: “Who’s ready? Hurt my knees during rehearsal..but nothing will stop me from doing my best for you! LET’S ROCK N ROLL!!!!! \m/” You can follow him on Twitter here.
