It's not hard to imagine Colton Dixon on Broadway, is it?
This American Idol veteran - who tried out for both previous seasons and hadn't even planned on giving it a third go until the judges convinced him during his sister's opening audition this year - covered "Decode" on last night's live audition show, leaping atop a piano to close the performance and looking like he belongs in "American Idiot" or "Rock of Ages."
That's not a diss. Just an observation. Jennifer Lopez told Colton he sings "from the heart," but she told that to pretty much every contestant last night.
Watch Dixon's performance now and decide how he compares to other season 11hopefuls such as Deandre Brackensick.
