[via press release from FOX]

TEARS! BREAKDOWNS! FAINTING!

WHO WILL SURVIVE "AMERICAN IDOL'S" HARDEST HOLLYWOOD WEEK EVER?

DON'T MISS SOME OF THE MOST DRAMATIC AND CHALLENGING EPISODES IN "AMERICAN IDOL" HISTORY BEGINNING TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8; AND CONTINUING THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9; AND WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15 ON FOX

Contestants Battle it Out During the Performance Challenge Thursday, Feb. 16; Top Semifinalists to be Revealed on Wednesday, Feb. 22 and Thursday, Feb. 23

Over 300 contestants made it to Hollywood and only 70 will survive Hollywood Week -- the most challenging week of their lives. The contestants are pushed to their limits and ambulances are called to the scene as some faint, vomit and even fall off the stage. Randy, Jennifer and Steven put the contestants to the test as they reveal whom they believe have what it takes to be the next AMERICAN IDOL. The not-to-be-missed Hollywood Week kicks off tonight, Wednesday, Feb. 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and continues Thursday, Feb. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET /PT) and Wednesday, Feb. 15 (8:00-10:00 PM ET /PT) on FOX.

Throughout the Hollywood rounds, the contestants will face intense challenges, completely different from what they encountered during auditions. They'll sing solo, perform in groups for the judges and then sing on a huge stage, as they compete against each other to remain on the show. Who will make it and who will be sent home? See what happens when emotions run high, lyrics are lost and tears are shed.

Those who survive Hollywood will embark on an adventure of a lifetime as they head to Las Vegas for the Performance Challenge on stage in Cirque du Soleil's Viva ELVIS Theatre at Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Some will shine, while others will crack under the pressure on a special two-hour episode Thursday, Feb. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

The following week, contestants will take the stage one last time and sing for their lives to prove they deserve to make it to the next round. For some, it's the end of the road, but for those who make it, it will be the start of an incredible journey. The second phase of the competition comes to a dramatic end when Randy, Jennifer and Steven reveal this season's semifinalists Wednesday, Feb. 22 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Feb. 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
