Colton Dixon Regrets Fateful Song Choice on Idol

Originally posted 04/20/2012 12:05PM

For Colton Dixon, "Bad Romance" turned out to be a bad idea.

The American Idol singer, who was shockingly eliminated Thursday, admitted that his two song choices – and particularly the first one – were what let him down.

"I regret my first song last night," he said of the Lady Gaga tune, after he was sent packing. "My take on it was me, and I didn't veer stylistically from me at all. But I think I could have chosen a better song that I could connect with that had a better message for me and for my audience."

He added: "I think that's what turned a lot of people off last night."

The save is gone. So, one of American Idol's talented top seven has to go home.

American Idol Does Soul Train

Originally posted 04/18/2012 10:30PM

Dick Clark, known as "America's Oldest Teenager," would have approved of American Idol's theme on Wednesday, which had contestants performing two songs: a No. 1 hit from 2000-2012, and a soul song from "back in the day."

But the theme was actually intended to honor another television pioneer: Soul Train creator Don Cornelius, who also passed away this year.

Ryan Seacrest recognized his hero, saying Idol wouldn't exist with Clark, who died of a massive heart attack Wednesday. But, he acknowledged, the show must go on: "The theme is based around a show similar to American Bandstand," he said, "Soul Train."

So how did the top seven contestants do? Keep reading for a full recap of Wednesday's show ...

American Idol's lucky seven had a mostly fantastic night on Wednesday. But when everyone does well, it only makes elimination night harder.

"I'm always worried, Ryan, when it gets to this point in the competition," Randy Jackson told host Seacrest at the beginning of Thursday's results show. "I got to be honest with you – I said it last night – nobody's safe."

It's true that top contenders at this point in the competition have been eliminated. It happened to Jennifer Hudson, who performed "Think Like a Man" with Ne-Yo on Thursday. Then again, it also happened to Sanjaya Malakar.

So who's still in the competition and whose fate was put into the hands of the judges, who have yet to use their one save of the season? Keep reading to find out ...
