American Idol Top 10

AMERICAN IDOL revealed the Top 10 finalists last night, including Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur, Curtis Finch, Jr., Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb, Paul Jolley, Angie Miller, Burnell Taylor and Devin Velez.

In addition, host Ryan Seacrest announced the “American Idol Live!” tour this summer.

Next week, AMERICAN IDOL will hold a sing-off between the sixth-place runner-up girl and guy for that coveted spot. This season, AT&T is giving the audience brand-new ways to be involved with the show.

On Wednesday, March 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 10 finalists will perform “Music of the AMERICAN IDOLs,” which includes songs performed by any past IDOL winner.

Tune in the following night, Thursday, March 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), as America finds out who received enough votes to continue in the competition and who will be sent home. In addition, world-renowned rock group Bon Jovi will perform their lead single “Because We Can” and quadruple-platinum, Billboard chart-topper and AMERICAN IDOL winner Phillip Phillips will perform “Gone, Gone, Gone,” the second single from his debut album. “Gone, Gone, Gone” also will serve as the “goodbye” song of the season and will be featured when the IDOL finalists are eliminated each week.

The finalists will also perform their first group number, “Shine Your Way,” from the motion picture soundtrack for the upcoming DreamWorks Animation comedy, “The Croods.” The original track is performed by multi-platinum recording artist Owl City and artist Yuna.
