Colton Dixon: Totally The (Piano) Man!

by at . Comments

American Idol may have come into sharper focus on the men's side last night, as two competitors stood out from all else on a night that honored Billy Joel.

There was Phillip Phillips, who stuck to what he does best in strumming his guitar along to a stripped down version of "Moving On."

Then there was Colton Dixon, who showed no fear in tackling what is likely Joel's most beloved single, "Piano Man." This finalist sat down himself at the title instrument and earned "goosies" from Jennifer Lopez, along with praise from Randy regarding how the performance was the most "sensitive, touching, moving" of the night.

It's hard to argue with that assessment, isn't it?
