Colton Dixon (born October 19, 1991) is from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and is 20 years old. He auditioned in North Charleston, South Carolina with his younger sister, Schyler, who was cut in the Las Vegas round. He originally auditioned for season 10 along with Schyler in the Nashville, Tennessee, auditions, but she was cut in the Las Vegas round and then he was cut in the green mile round. Dixon returned in season 11, however he did not plan to audition, initially planning to merely accompany his sister Schyler to her audition. The judges implored Dixon to audition as well, where he sang David Cook's "Permanent". In Las Vegas, Schyler was cut again, which brought him to tears. He performed The "5" Royales' "Dedicated to the One I Love" with Chase Likens, Cari Quoyeser and Skylar Laine. For his final solo he performed Coldplay' song "Fix You", and he dedicated to his sister, Shyler, who was eliminated.
