Tonight on American Idol Colton Dixon sang “Everything” by Lighthouse. Colton is amazed that Stevie Nicks knows who he is and Colton is very into Jesus tonight – very nasal but also intense. All the religiosity makes Colton think that the judges won’t dare say anything bad about his performance.
Judges J-Lo, Randy and Steven: “You are a dream come true for a judge on ‘Idol,’” Steven Tyler says. “What a way to start the show. It was so emotional,” J-Lo follows. “I believe you and every song you choose and every lyric,” according to Randy, saying that Colton doesn’t hide it. “That performance was unbelievable,” Randy adds, noting that there are nine people left and Colton wants to win. “He wants to win! He wants to win!” says Randy.
Colton starts to cry, calling this his favorite worship song. J-Lo is crying with him. Ryan promises that Skylar is going to “show off her sassy side.”
