Colton Dixon, a Season 11 contestant on 'American Idol,' returned to the stage tonight (March 28), performing his thoroughly rawkin' single 'Love Has Come for Me.' He even joked beforehand that he would be able to get out there and do his thing with confidence, since he didn't have to worry about being in the bottom three anymore.

My, you've come a long way, Colton!

He's enjoyed success as a Christian artist, and he still sounds and looks terrific. The spiky blond coif is in tact and his voice soars. The experience he has gained in the past year on the X-tian circuit was felt in this performance. It was tight, bold, bright and awesome.

Colton Dixon's got the hot Christian rocker dude thing on lockdown, and we were glad to enjoy his music and live performance prowess again.
