Jessica Sanchez escapes, Colton Dixon surprisingly lands in 'American Idol' bottom three

Jessica Sanchez, Phillip Phillips and Colton Dixon are up as "American Idol" reveals which one of them is in the bottom three, joining Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh.

Well, Sanchez is my fave; hope it's Dixon, even though fan-favorite Phillips is the one who deserves it in my eyes.

Mentor Jimmy Iovine says he realizes now that Sanchez needs to start singing more age-appropriate songs, and that he gave her bad advice with her choices Thursday night.

Sanchez is safe! Yes! So it'll be Dixon in the bottom three -- for the first time all season. And indeed it is.
