Bad Romance (American Idol Performance)
As usual, Colton was outstanding tonight! He gave a perfect performance that fit his personality and stayed true to himself. Good luck Colton!!!!!
I don't know what it is...
In the 11 years that American Idol has been on television, I have not bought a singe song from one of the contestants (not counting the success AFTER the fact from the likes of Kelly Clarkson/Carrie Underwood) but I have bought almost every song from Colton. There is something about his voice that just makes me want to listen over and over again. I know some people say he's whiny, or whatever, but I disagree. I would buy his record.
About Colton Dixon
Born on October 19, 1991 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, singer/songwriter Colton Dixon first caught the public's attention on season 11 of American Idol. The guitar-playing, golden-maned Dixon's soaring vocals and upfront spirituality connected with audiences enough to secure a seventh-place finish, and it didn't take long for the charismatic rocker to land a record deal. The resulting A Messenger, his debut for Sparrow Records, was released in 2013 and quickly rose to #15 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Christian Album chart. With newly raised stakes, he fared similarly well with his 2014 follow-up, Anchor which also topped the Christian chart and featured the hit single "More of You." Tours with major artists like TobyMac, Third Day, and Casting Crowns helped increase his profile as a popular concert act. In 2015, Dixon released The Calm Before the Storm, an album which combined two previously released EP's: the all-acoustic Calm and a set of remixes called Storm. Early in 2017, Dixon released the single "All That Matters," a preface to his third full album Identity, which was released by Sparrow that March. ~ James Christopher Monger
