‘American Idol’s’ Colton Dixon Sings Hair-Metal Hit; White Lion Frontman Praises Performance, Lays Into Steven Tyler – We reached rocker and co-writer Mike Tramp in his home country of Denmark where he told THR he had “nothing but praise and the absolutely the best to say about Colton, his voice and his passion for music.

It was cool to hear what he had to say and what he thought about the show, which was all positive, so it just gets me excited about what’s ahead.” – Read more at Zap2it
