Colton Dixon on American Idol

Colton Dixon sang "Hanging by a Moment" by Lifehouse for his audition in Nashville and advanced to Hollywood as a result.

A senior at Middle Tennessee Christian School, Dixon says he loves to spread the Gospel through music. He also plays piano and enjoys just goofing around.

UPDATE: Dixon got the boot on season 10, but he's back on season 11 of American Idol! Way to follow your dreams, man.
