Colton Dixon's American Idol Performance Video 4/18/12

Tonight’s theme on American Idol is “Now & Then” and we’ll see the same seven competitors take on two songs. Last week, the judges saved Jessica Sanchez in a last minute use of their only save of the season. If you’ve missed last week’s elimination, you can read that recap here. Of course, tonight we are recapping the show LIVE at this link.

Left in the competition are Phillip Phillips, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Skylar Laine, Elise Testone and Colton Dixon. There are no more saves, so the competition really has to bring it to avoid elimination.

On tonight’s show, Colton Dixon is performing Lady Gaga’s hit song Bad Romance. Can he pull it off?

WATCH THE VIDEO:

Our commentary:

It’s the rock version of Bad Romance! Of course, without the RAH RAH’s in the beginning. It’s not the best cover of the song that I’ve heard. He seems off-key. We’re not a fan of this cover, even though the audience is clapping.

Judge’s commentary:

Randy: We were just at the Colton Dixon concert there. He was in the zone, but this wasn’t the greatest performance. He loved his interpretation of Gaga. It was “so smart”. Job well done.
Jennifer: It was an exciting performance. There were parts she loved and he has so much character when he sings.
Steve: He loved the outfit and the band. Keep taking chances and risks and doing what he’s doing.

What did you think of Colton’s performance tonight? Do you think he has what it takes to be the next American Idol? Was this your favorite performance of the evening? Hit the comments with your thoughts!
