‘American Idol’ has just sent home a fan favorite. Colton Dixon was sent home Thursday night, April 19 after the nationwide vote. He sang Lifehouse’s ‘Everything’ as his swan song.
On Wednesday, Top 7 took on ‘Now & Then’ theme allowing them to perform two songs each filling the 2-hour episode. Colton performed Lady Gaga’s ‘Bad Romance’ and Earth, Wind and Fire classic ‘September.’
But Dixon was sent home after receiving the lowest amount of votes from the viewers. He was accompanied by Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh in the bottom three. There’s no mistaking that Colton has a beautiful, astounding voice, but his performaces last night were not good enough to impress fans back home.
The Top 6, then, includes Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh, Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet and Skylar Laine.

this year the judges must have went out and found all the homeless people to try out, that is what most of them looked like, i think they should bring SIMON back, RANDY JACKSON needs to go, really all 3 judges need to go, the judges tell them they did great and then at same time say it was bad, JENNIFER acts like she is so HOT she want to jump on the young men, producers made STEVEN settle down on his talk, they need to make JENNEFER take a cold shower, and RANDY JACKSON is just stupid. it was a shocker when colton was voted off, it was a joke when they used save to keep Jessica, the judges have given her the big head, making her think she is the best, when the judges used the save and ran up on stage. s made me sick seeing that, then right in front of the whole world they said she was better than any of the others, that was not right, it was just for show, she was never in the bottom 3, what about Joshua, he should have went, not colton, all Joshua can do is sing like he is in church, or as simon would say he needs to sing on love boat,Joshua is bad as the GINTLE GIANT, that was another joke, i don't know why the PRODUCERS think people are so stupid, Joshua,Jessica and hollie are the ones who need to go, my family and friends all said it would come down to Colton and Skylar,
Ladies & Gentlemen, this girl has a very captivating & perfectly well controlled voice, soothing.......extraordinary. We love her expressions in the song...well delivered.....she got the whole package of an American Idol Winner.......she is Jessica Sanchez.....GOD BLESS HER....
everybody deserves to win...i like jessica and colton...they're really great performers...the voters must vote for the best singer not for the look or race...the save that was used by the judges last week was the right thing the judges did...its so sad that they only have one save for every season...if american voters vote based on the look and race then they should watch beauty pageant instead...remember AMERICAN IDOL is designed for the search of a great singer NOT a beauty...to all those who undermine other contestants especially Jessica Sanchez, beware of your words because there must be a good reason why they were eliminated first...in HIS time...thanks...
Hollie Cavanagh should have been sent Home not colton, if u were going to sum up everything, like how many weak performances Hollie had? but still she stays, if there would be someone to sent home it should be Hollie, colton deserved to stay in the game!
I guess he deserves to go home ...for me, the judges DID THE RIGHT THING when they saved Jessica. .Jessica is way way better than Colton..yes Colton is good, but Jessica is a great singer..
based on performance then, yes! i don't think he's that talented compared to the other contestants. just my opinion!
JUST GREAT! Now american idol 2012 is USEELESSSS! The only reason i watched was for colton and phillip, now phillip wins and the amazing ending of those 2 in the finale.. RUINED! B. EFFING S. B.S american idol!
Stop whining you g@y teeny boppers. There are so many other cute guys out there, you could find one in your neighborhood.
at this point everyone, win or homeward bound, has tremendous worth in the music business including colton. The top six are winners and will be terrific representatives in their fields: country skylar and hollie, soul joshua and jessica, rock elise and phil. by the way, kailie, the crap you wrote about jessica is incorrect and should also get you arrested.
I feel sorry for the million little whiny girls crying (comments above me). Oh well, boo freaken hoo. Jessica is the next american idol. She is little by little growing and will be the whole package!! So happy she's saved
Hollie doesn't deserve in the 6th spot, she's been on the bottom 3 for how many weeks now & I know being voted Jessica's out last week & being the always top 3 went to bottom 3 last week was only for the rating sake. Colton deserve to be in the 4th spot
I LOVE YOU COLTON I SWEAR IF I COULD TAKE ANYTHING BACK I WOULD BRING U BACK AND HAVE JESSICA SANCHEZ AND HAVE U BACK U WERE.AMAZING GOD BLESS U HE HAS A AN FOR YOU
c'mon stupid guys. Colton deserves it. Yes he has a talent. Yes he can sing. But NO he does not have that thing to be the next american idol. I know girls are weeping right now because he's handsome and he's hot but he's not that great singer. THE JUDGES DID THE RIGHT THING WHEN THEY USED THEIR SAVE TO JESSICA SANCHEZ. SHE'S THE REAL THING.
I believe that Jessica should be saved last week because she deserves it! but this week she has to be gone! and colton definitely deserves a save here!
how old are you Soleil? You're included in one of those whining teeny boppers. Look around your neighborhood, there are other cute guys out there.
This must be another conspiracy! Jessica was made to be eliminated because the save was going to expire soon! and this would help boost jessica's career and gives her so much more publicity! But this week, I don't know whether the judges wants to save or not, but I believe that this was because he refuse to listen to the producers and judges. If this is the case, I can see Jess winning and PP out of the league very soon. FUCK AI.
This makes me positively sick. I agree the save would have been better used for Colton, and not an obvious Illuminati sellout. I suspect that choosing a GaGa song hurt him, as those believers who make up a large part of his fan base were not seeing this as consistent with his testimony. However, it still seemed sudden, and unfair. We know what is in his heart, and he should have gone on talent alone, just like the others. I'm not understanding how Elise has gotten this far. She looked happy to see Colton go. I'm done with this show, which features GaGa, Nikki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez's racy and tasteless video, and tells their contestant to tame down the God stuff. I don't understand why that is necessary.
how old are you angi? You're included in one of those whining teeny boppers. Look around your neighborhood, there are other cute guys out there.
I'll be frank. Now I regret why the save was used on that bitchy brat but not colton! I don't get it! Colton and PP was the ones that always have the highest votes ever! How could Elise even top him this time! But, in a good way, this also means that Hollie has an extremely strong fanbase so she won't leave too soon. Even Jess might not even top her in terms of voting. Fucking stupid. Now I only see PP winning this game, if he leaves I will quit watching. But if Jess leaves, I'll definitely watch it again.
if Jessica does not deserve the #SAVE why did she still in the game? knowing that last Thursday elimination she remained safe and never been in bottom 3 again. it only means she deserved the save and a lot of people vote for her to stay . and the judges and a lot of folks still believes in her and to her talent.
I cannot believe Colton got voted off. I didn't vote last night and that will not happen again. This is so stupid.
This was NOT right. Colton deserved to go all the way if u couldn't see that u must be blind and deaf.
That is what they did, they dit not look (at his beautiful face) but rather they listen to his voice (not so great at all).
the judges should be ashamed. they wasted their save. Colton was the best and this is absolutely wrong.
NO ONE WITH A RIGHT MINDS AND PERFECT EARS AND EYES AGREE! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUSLY INSANE! AMERICA ALL 9999999999999999999999999999999etc. COLTON DIXON FANS including myself EXPECT AN EXPLANATION! Judges HOW COULD YOU GUYS JUST SIT THEIR AND LET THIS TRAGEDY HAPPEN?!
America did not get it right again. Colton did amazing!!! Hands down. I'm not just saying that because I am from Tennessee. Maybe Elise or Hollie would have been better choices but they weren't the ones sent home. Colton rocks, and I'm sure the judges are regretting using the save on Jessica. Yes, Jessica is amazing but they should have waited because now another idol fan favorite had to pay the price tonight. So next week, America, vote wisely.
So they should have Jessica go just to save COLTON? That's a crap. Jessica is the most deserving of them all
How did Colton get in the bottom 3 tonight and get sent home? Hollie has been in the bottom 3 for like 5 weeks now. Something is wrong there with Hollie. Do they have some kind of system that makes Hollie not go home? All of the girls are bad and need to be sent home. That save should not have been used for Jessica. It should have been used for Colton. It was between Phillip or Colton to win. I am buying Colton's album when it comes out! America is so wrong!!!
I, for one agree, Holli should have been sent home way earlier. Hey maybe she has a football team, that's why.....
COLTON GETTING SENT HOM WAS THE BIGGEST MISTAKE AMERICA EVER DID! I think america voted wrong! Yes, his performance yesterday was different, but HONESTLY he has better nights & they judged only according to yesterday! Thats wack! Crazy! Ellise should have been out! All should have been safe and Elise Should have been sent home! "like" if you agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Phillips better win now since Colton left! #idol
Agreed! Him or Joshua! I prefer Phillip though... Colton is an amazing guy and someone WILL call him up and offer him something way better than An American Idol contract
Colton never received any standing ovation from the judges. That is the truth. Stop whining teeny boppers. There are so many other cute guys out there, you could find one in your neighborhood.
I think it could possibly be one of the worst decisions EVER!!!! If ANYBODY should have went home it should have been... JESSICA SANCHEZ... Sorry for hating on her but seriously people DO U NOT KNOW TALENT????
you don't have to be sorry for hating Jessica, we can't blame her...with a talent like that and stupid people like you...definitely, there will be haters around... i don't hate Colton, like the way Jessica but please.... sad truth.... you suck! and you can't do anything with Colton not being with American Idol anymore... just die!
wow. talking about talent jessica sanchez has it. im not a colton hater im actually a fan of his but saying to us that if we do not know talent?? u must be the stupidest person in this blog.
