Will James Have to Apologize For His Pepsi Comment?

So one thing we may see on tonight’s results show is an apology to the family of Michael Jackson or at least a chance for James Durbin to make amends… is reporting that Michael’s family was upset about James’ comment last night that he was concerned about having a Pepsi moment.

A spokesman reportedly told the website, “We were shocked to see this. It's nothing to make light of and everybody should be focusing on who was responsible for Michael's death.”

James tweeted this an hour ago: “For anyone talkin..I said pepsi NOT MJ! I have no disrespect for Michael. I grew up singing his art.I guess youll take it how you want it...Talkin about MJs passing is too soon. Making a reference to an incident that happen 25 years ago..not too soon. The stab was at pepsi people

It’s clear James didn’t mean any harm, but I’m sure that Ryan will give him an opportunity to explain himself during the show tonight.
