American Idol 2012 Singers Colton Dixon and Elise Testone Visit The Tonight Show

American Idol 2012 Colton Dixon and Elise Testone

This past Friday our two most recent American Idol 2012 elimnations, Colton Dixon and Elise Testone, paid a visit to The Tonight Show. The former Idol hopefuls had a quick interview and then spent the evening performing alongside the band.

Colton Dixon stood by his defense that poor song choice, a Lady Gaga selection to be specific, cleared the path to his elimination and was pushed over the edge by strong performances by his competition. Leno saluted Colton’s self-blame in lieu of pointing fingers for his departure.

Elise Testone explained that she wasn’t surprised by her elimination during the Top 6 considering her many trips to the Bottom 3. She was clearly still disappointed, but staying positive and looking forward to what’s next for her.

Elise Testone will have more media appearances this week so keep an eye out for your next chance to catch her on television. Colton Dixon finished most of his post American Idol 2012 press tour events last week and you can watch a few of those.

    • how the hell jessica gets into this post? this is about elise and colton, not jessica! i’m a jessica fan but this is inappropriate to promote these kinds of comments here. know it yourself why.

      • JessPushers have no respect for the other contestants which is what this thread is about. For them, it ALWAYS has to be about Jess.

      • Just ignore them if there is there are comments about Jessica here ok?Have you notice that only few comments this time,they are not interested about Colton & Elise I think only 22 followers share their views about them.I’m not interested too in this topics about  them, just wait for the next topic to arrive.

    • I totally agree! Go Jessica,
      To me your already a big star like beyonce
