The 20-year-old fell into the bottom three alongside Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh during Thursday night's live results show and was sent home after host Ryan Seacrest revealed that he had received the lowest number of public votes.
The remaining contestants who will move on to become the Top 6 are Cavanagh, Testone, Skylar Laine, Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips.
LMFAO also appeared during the broadcast to perform their new single 'Sorry For Party Rocking', while former American Idol contestant Kris Allen also took to the stage for a rendition of his new song 'The Vision of Love'.
Digital Spy users once again voted Sanchez as their favourite performer of the week with over a third of the reader vote, while Dixon, Cavanagh and Testone pulled in 8.2%, 16.1% and 6.2% of reader votes respectively.
