Колтон Диксон (род. 19 октября 1991), американский певец из Мерфрисборо, штат Теннесси. Он занял седьмое место в одиннадцатом сезоне American Idol.

Colton Dixon was born on October 19, 1991, to parents Michael and Teresa Dixon. He was born and raised in a middle class family in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, along with younger sister, Schyler. His father is a postal worker, and his family has a Maltese dog named Maggie. Besides being a choir member throughout high school, Dixon was into skimboarding and collecting bobbleheads. In 2008, he was an extra during the filming of "Hannah Montana: The Movie". He graduated from Middle Tennessee Christian School in 2010.
He considers himself as a devout Christian, and has sang at several worship services including at Saddleback Church. He and Schyler are part of a Christian rock band called Messenger. He sees himself going into Christian music and hopes to land a Christian rock record. Chris Daughtry and Hayley Williams are his favorite male and female artists. Other musical influences include Paramore, 30 Seconds to Mars, Lifehouse, Evanescence, and The Fray.
Dixon originally auditioned in the tenth season, along with his sister Schyler, at the Nashville auditions. However, neither of them ended up in the Top 24. After he was sent home, Dixon performed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on March 3, 2011.
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". Both he and Schyler were awarded golden tickets. Schyler was cut yet again during the Las Vegas round, which brought him to tears.
On February 23, 2012, Dixon was placed in the season 11 Top 25. In the semi-finals, he performed Paramore's "Decode". He was one of the top five male vote getters and advanced into the Top 13.
Guest performer on the Top 13 Results night and runner-up of American Idol season 10 Lauren Alaina named Dixon and fellow contestant Jessica Sanchez as her two favorites to win the competition. His elimination on April 19, 2012 was considered a big surprise because he had never been in the bottom three. After the show, judge Steven Tyler said that he was "beyond shocked" at Dixon's elimination.
