Colton Dixon: Why I'm Happy I Was Voted Off 'American Idol'

Mon, April 23, 2012 10:01am EST by 5 Comments

Colton sang his heart out April 23 on ‘Live! With Kelly’ and talked about his shocking elimination.

We may not get to see Colton Dixon live on American Idol every week, but don’t bother shedding any tears for the Tennessee native — because he’s totally happy! Now that he’s off the show, he finally has time to focus on his true passion. “I get to start writing,” he said April 23 on Live! With Kelly. “I miss the Idol family like crazy, but I get to do what I love: write and record.”

Along with his brief interview, Colton also delivered a haunting performance, once again causing us to wonder how the heck he was ever eliminated in the first place. And it sounds like Kelly Ripa can’t make heads or tails of the cut either!

“America made a mistake,” she told him.

We agree!

I truely thought he would go all the way! But Jimmy didn’t like the fact that he was such a like person to start with and was pretty versitle in his singing. But he will do well like Daughtery and Hudson I am sure.

American Idol is a scam. They wil do anything for ratings. Colton was never in the bottom 3. The crowd always went wild when he came on stage and yet he goes home. This show is rigged . Colton got cheated as do other great singers. Just look at the garbage quality that has won in the last few years. Taylor Hicks? Come on. That guy is total garbage and has gone nowhere. Chris Allen? Garbage and again gone nowhere. Adam Lambert was a million times better and yet Chris Allen won. Give me a break. This show is a total scam. I personally am done watching this garbage.
