Colton Dixon performed ‘Bad Romance’ by Lady Gaga tonight on American Idol the Top 7. It is the same group as last week after the judges saved Jessica Sanchez with their only save last week. This week each contestant will be on the American Idol stage twice, the theme for this week is Now and Then. We are getting awfully close, can you imagine how much stress the contestants are feeling?
The “singers” had to pick a #1 hit song from 2000-2012 and then sing an older soul song. The mentor for tonight’s show is Jimmy Levine.
Colton is thrilled because Ryan calls his sister up on stage, she also auditioned but she didn’t make it to the show – she tells Ryan how proud she is of her brother. Jimmy thinks Colton needs to really try to pull out the high notes from the bottom of his sole tonight. Colton feels like he is taking on a new monster tonight, but he is not going change who is is. Colton is singing “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga.
Judges Comments: Steven said, “I know you got to get low to get high, I loved your outfit and your set, keep taking chances and risks and doing what you are doing.” Jennifer said, “It was an exciting performance, but there were parts I loved and parts I didn’t.” Randy said, “We were just at the Colton Dixon concert there, you are so in the zone but I don’t think this was the best performance, your voice was a little too low, but job well done.”
