COUNTDOWN TO GRAND FINALE BEGINS AS TOP FIVE FINALISTS PERFORM LIVE WEDNESDAY, MAY 2, ON FOX

Season Four AMERICAN IDOL Winner and Grammy Award Winner Carrie Underwood and World-Renowned Rock Band Coldplay to Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, May 3

Last night, America cast a season-high 58 million votes for their favorite finalists on AMERICAN IDOL. Tonight, host Ryan Seacrest revealed that Elise Testone received the fewest number of votes and was eliminated from the competition. Also on tonight's results show, Katy Perry performed her hit, "Part of Me," and AMERICAN IDOL Season 10 finalist Stefano Langone performed his new single, "I'm On A Roll," featuring Ben J of New Boyz. In addition, the official touring Queen tribute, The Queen Extravaganza, performed Queen's classic smash hit "Somebody To Love," along with original Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

With only four performance shows left in the season, tune in next week, Wednesday, May 2 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the Top Five - Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez - return to the IDOL stage to sing for America's votes on a British music-themed performance show.

Don't miss the live results show the following night, Thursday, May 3 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when another finalist is sent home. In addition, Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum artist Carrie Underwood will perform. One of AMERICAN IDOL's most successful winners, Underwood has sold more than 12 million records worldwide. Another Grammy Award-winning, chart-topping act, the world-famous alternative rock band Coldplay, also will perform, hitting the IDOL stage for the first time.
