Colton Dixon Breaks Hearts on American Idol

by at . Comments

Might we have a new American Idol favorite on the men's side?

With Phillip Phillips struggling a bit last night, Colton Dixon took to the stage and also took Will.I.Am's words to heart, making a scarcely known single ("Broken Heart" by White Lion) into his own.

Clearly comfortable on stage, Dixon brought the early 1990s rock anthem into the mainstream, perhaps earning a crush from Jennifer Lopez in the process, as he referred to him as a "lover" and commented on his look.

Steven Tyler was a lot more to the point, telling Colton the performance was "dope." We agree. Do you?
