For Round 2 Colton Dixon performed ‘September’ by Earth, Wind and Fire 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 felt like he is taking on a new monster tonight, but he is not going change who is is. Colton sang “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga in ROUND 1. In Round 2 he sang September for his older song.
Judges Comments: Jennifer said, “I love you voice but it was too powerful for that song.” Steven said, “I love that song, you did a different arrangement, but it wasn’t perfect fit, I am not sure it was the perfect performance for you.” Randy said, “It wasn’t the perfect song to do with that, if you had taken a Little Wayne song, but this wasn’t as exciting as we would have liked.
