Whoa, that reality television got real Thursday night (April 19)!

Media outlets and American Idol fans went bonkers when Colton Dixon got the boot. But Colton got a nice consolation prize—some love from the best-selling artist to ever appear on the show.

"Keep your head up!" Carrie Underwood urged Colton via Twitter. "You are SO amazingly talented! God has blessed you so much and will continue to do so!"
