Colton Dixon to American Idol Judges: What About Now?!?

by at . Comments

Colton Dixon really hopes the second time is a charm.

This Murfreeboro, Tennessee native came oh-so-close to the top 24 on season 10 of American Idol, and didn't even plan on trying out for season 11. But he showed up a couple weeks ago to support his sister, got roped into a song... and there he was last night, on stage in Hollywood.

Sitting at the piano and sort of making love to the camera, Dixon impressed the panel with his take on "What About Now," an apt selection, given his return to the competition. Think he has what it takes to advance this time around?

Great work here by Dixon, and also by Joshua Ledet on the same episode. Both advanced to the next round.
