Colton Dixon Gives It "Everything" on American Idol

by at . Comments

Colton Dixon took a bit of the life out of Lifehouse last night.

The American Idol finalist took to the stage and performed a version of "Everything," trying his best to milk emotion from the ballad (and even shedding a few tears after it was over), but really just coming across as - dare we say it? - boring overall.

There were no major moments and nothing that really stood out from the audition, as evidenced by the judges restrained comments: Steven Tyler just said it was great; J.Lo said it was emotional; and Randy said Colton has "believability."

We grant the guy that. We do believe he exists. We just wish he had gone in a different direction in this case...
