'American Idol': Colton Dixon plays us a song, he's the 'Piano Man'

We have to confess - even though "Piano Man" is a natural choice for Colton Dixon on "American Idol's" Billy Joel week, we were hoping he'd go a little less overplayed and pick something like "The Stranger" or "Pressure." But "Piano Man" was the call and it was a good one. There were just enough change-ups to the melody line to stylize it his own way, but not so much so that the song was unrecognizable. The judges loved it too. Steven Tyler gave a particularly astute critique when he said, "Your choice of chords when your voice resolved was stunning. Just outrageous. You're a great musician and a great singer."And Randy added, "You gave a very sensitive, touching, moving performance on one of his classics." What did you think, "Idol" fans? Did Colton win the night?...
