Colton Dixon on American Idol Elimination: God Will Guide Me

by at . Comments

Immediately upon hearing his name called by Ryan Seacrest last night, as the latest American Idol finalist to get the boot, Colton Dixon was gracious and humble. He even apologized to the crowd for his poor Wednesday evening performances.

A little while later, backstage with reporters, not much was different for the dyed-hair rocker.

"[I'm] a little overwhelmed, but besides that, I'm good," Dixon said. "I know God is going to use me to do other things."

Was he at all resentful that the judges used up their save on Jessica Sanchez the week before? Not remotely.

She "deserved to be saved, hands down," Colton said, adding that he knew he'd be in the bottom three was he was called to center stage along with Sanchez and Phillip Phillips.

Sounding excited to write his own songs and build a career, Dixon went on to detail what he plans for America to hear from him going forward.

"I want to do Christian music. That's where my heart's at. I grew up on it, that's what I've taken a stand for, and that's what I believe in. I'm going to start writing as soon as they let me and get started on a record, whether it's independent [or on Interscope Records]. I don't know what's going to happen. I'm just excited to share a gift that God gave me. It's all in His timing. You've just got to let go and trust that He's going to do good things with you."

We wish Colton the best of luck on his journey.

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
