"AMERICAN IDOL" TOP 12 FINALISTS REVEALED

KATELYN EPPERLY, TODRICK HALL, ALEX LAMBERT AND LILLY SCOTT ARE ELIMINATED FROM COMPETITION

TOP 12 PERFORM LIVE TUESDAY, MARCH 16, ON FOX; NEXT RESULTS SHOW WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17

Tonight, AMERICAN IDOL revealed this season's Top 12 finalists (Didi Benami, Crystal Bowersox, Lacey Brown, Lee Dewyze, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Aaron Kelly, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus, Paige Miles, Katie Stevens and Tim Urban) as Katelyn Epperly, Todrick Hall, Alex Lambert and Lilly Scott were eliminated from the competition after receiving the fewest of America's votes. The AMERICAN IDOL journey has ended for Epperly, 19, from West Des Moines, IA, who sang "I Feel The Earth Move"; Hall, 24, from Arlington, TX, who sang "Somebody To Love"; Lambert, 19, from North Richland Hills, TX, who sang "Trouble"; and Scott, 20, from Denver, CO, who sang "I Fall To Pieces."

On Tuesday, March 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), a new IDOL stage will be revealed and America's Top 12 will take the stage to perform songs by The Rolling Stones.

And starting tonight, for the first time ever, IDOL show themes will be on iTunes along with playlists of original songs by the original artists from which the contestants may choose. iTunes Store customers will be able to purchase and download songs and playlists for IDOL show themes in advance, giving fans the opportunity to preview and download the same music the contestants will be listening to as they make their all-important song choices.

Tune in the following night, Wednesday, March 17 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to the live results show to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home.
