‘American Idol’ notes: Colton Dixon and Skylar Laine talk tour

Colton spoke out in a web chat.

As a way to promote the “American Idol” live tour, two of season 11’s biggest stars in Colton Dixon and Skylar Laine each got up bright and early on Wednesday morning in order to host a live chat with some of the fans. It was a pretty brief Q&A that blew by faster than a performance on the show itself, but there were a few fun moments worth sharing.

Colton talks tour music – “We actually chose some of those songs based on feedback you gave us. There are going to be a lot of new songs, too, including some that you’ve never heard.”

On one of Colton’s favorite pieces of fan mail – “I got a sketch of me as Schroeder from Peanuts. It had the jacket of me playing ‘Piano Man.’ It was awesome.”

On Skylar’s favorite song – “It was top 24, “Stay With Me.” It was a lot of fun.”

For those who are curious, Colton and Skylar still have the same sort of crazy chemistry that they had on the show, but they still don’t look like they’re dating. (Let’s just get that out of the way now.) They each emphasized how excited they are to be hitting the road soon, and there are going to be some great group numbers and surprises on the tour that you wouldn’t anticipate happening.

For those who missed out on this chat and want to see some more season 11 stars speak out in the future, Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone are going to be chatting at 11:15 a.m. Eastern time. To find out more information, all you have to do is head on over to the Facebook page for official tour sponsor Chips Ahoy. Hopefully, this will lead to even more fun moments.
