Joy! Rapture! The man-skunk is no more! Finally America has seen the light and given Colton Dixon the boot!
In celebration of this joyous occasion, we fondly revisit our favourite Colton moments.
Colton started spouting so much religion on his Idol Twitter account that the producers had to caution him.

And now, finally, we can describe him the way we have longed to since the very beginning of season 11: GONE!
