On The Colton Dixon Train
Ok, so I'm finally on the Colton Dixon train. I have to admit, at first I found him a bit pompous, and full of himself. But after last nights Top 12 performance, where Colton sang "Broken Heart" by White Lion, I got on board, full steam.
During the show, Colton shared with us that he had dinner with former American Idol contestant and music artist, Chris Daughtry. Colton said he learned 2 big things from Daughtry: 1) Be himself, 2) Choose songs that people know. He followed that by saying "Which I will do next week." Even though many might not have known the White Lion song Colton sang, he sure made us like it now.
My other favorite performance of the night went to Joshua Ledet, where he blew it out da box (as Randy Jackson would say). Joshua sang "When A Man Loves A Woman". After his performance, all three judges were on there feet. Joshua walked away with a standing ovation and a platter of Louisiana crawfish.
