Default Rexsell Hardy: American Idol's drummer

Question, who was the drummer for this season's American Idol show? Not the tour, but the show. The guy smokes! He kills every song, even the most lamest of songs. Is it Teddy Campbell?

It used to be Teddy, but I have no idea if it still is.

Not sure if it is the same drummer, but their bands are always top notch. Especially considering the wide spectrum of music they have to learn each week.

The two kids at the end last night are going to go places in the country music industry. They have great personalities, and amazing voices. 16 and 17 years old. WOW! Look like they have been doing it for 20 years.

i don't think it's teddy campbell any more because he's pretty busy with the tonight show now. they appear to have a new guy this year who is also very good, but not quite as flashy as teddy campbell. i can't figure out who he is.

Alright, so who is the drummer on the 2011 tour? I went to the show the other night in Bridgeport - the drummer was lethal. Every single song was made listenable souly from his playing.

H.264 seems to work fine but the Flash version doesn't seem to. It says it can't find the .mp4 file. My computer plays the H.264 by default so no problem for me.
