TweetColton Dixon elimination is a shocker . He had never been in the bottom three like Jessica Sanchez last week so this was not expected. There is no save left from the judges. For two straight weeks now, we have been receiving shocking voting results. Too bad Colton.
This was Colton’s worst week so far, with his song choices failing to represent who he wants to be as an artist, so it’s fitting that his first trip to the bottom three also resulted in his exit. He doesn’t need “American Idol” to have a successful recording career, since he has a marketable sound already, and I’m sure his elimination isn’t going to hamper him at all.
“You know, I need to apologize,” Colton told Ryan Seacrest and the judges after he heard the news. “I wasn’t myself last night, and I get it. I appreciate what you told me last night. I’ll take that when I’m making a record.”
“You’ll make many records,” and Randy Jackson to assure him, “You’ve got a huge career ahead of you.”
