LOS ANGELES, April 19 (UPI) -- Colton Dixon was eliminated from the competition on "American Idol" in Los Angeles Thursday.

Dixon did not secure enough viewer votes to stay on the television talent show after singing "Bad Romance" and "September" on Wednesday's edition of "Idol."

"I need to apologize. I wasn't myself last night and I get it," People.com said Dixon told the judges, who seemed surprised by the development. "And I appreciate what you told me last night. I'll take that when I'm making a record. And I'll choose songs [that are right for me]."

"You'll make many records," judge Jennifer Lopez told him.

"You have a huge career ahead of you," said panelist Randy Jackson.
