[via press release from FOX]

LISA TUCKER IS ELIMINATED FROM THE "AMERICAN IDOL" COMPETITION TOP 9 FINALISTS WILL COMPETE ON COUNTRY-THEMED PERFORMANCE SHOW TUESDAY, APRIL 4, ON FOX

Kenny Rogers to Perform on the Results Show April 5

The fifth season of AMERICAN IDOL continued its phenomenal momentum as the Top 10 finalists performed "songs of the 21st century" on Tuesday. Last night, Shakira and Wyclef Jean performed the hit single "Hips Don't Lie" from Shakira's album "Oral Fixation, vol. 2." It was revealed that Lisa Tucker received the fewest votes after Tuesday's performance show, ending her quest to become the next American Idol. Tucker, from Anaheim, CA, sang "Because of You."

AMERICAN IDOL-TUESDAY delivered a 12.9/32 among Adults 18-49 and won its hour among all key measures. IDOL outperformed the combined 5-net competition for the night with an enormous +47% advantage among Adults 18-49 (12.9 vs. 8.8), +59% among Adults 18-34 (11.3 vs. 7.1), +58% among Teens (8.4 vs. 5.3) and +11% in Total Viewers (31.5 vs. 28.4 Mil).

Next week, the competition on television's hottest show heats up when the Top 9 finalists (Bucky Covington, Chris Daughtry, Taylor Hicks, Elliott Yamin, Ace Young, Paris Bennett, Mandisa, Katharine McPhee and Kellie Pickler) compete head-to-head again on Tuesday, April 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). The theme for the performance show will be country music. Tune in the following night for a live performance by country star Kenny Rogers, and find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who must go home on the results show Wednesday, April 5 (9:00-9:32 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Fourteen-time Emmy-nominated AMERICAN IDOL is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, founder of 19 Entertainment, Ltd.; and executive-produced by Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.; Nigel Lythgoe, President, 19 Television; and Ken Warwick, Executive Producer, FremantleMedia North America, Inc.
