American Idol Takes On Paramore

This week in the search for the next American Idol, contestant Colton Dixon performed Paramore‘s haunting ballad “Decode” from the Twilight soundtrack.

Now granted Colton is no Hayley Williams, but it was cool to see a contestant take on a less familiar song instead of the same tunes we hear performed each year on the show. I.e., “Isn’t She Lovely” and any Adele song.

He did a nice version, but check out Colton’s performance here and tell me what you think.

What do you think of his performance? Who is your favorite so far on AI?
