"AMERICAN IDOL" GIVES FANS A "SUPERVOTE," PRESENTED BY AT&T

Fans Can Now Use AMERICAN IDOL's New Online Voting Feature To Cast Multiple Online Votes at One Time

AT&T AMERICAN IDOL Voting Via Online, Mobile and Tablet App, Toll-Free Phone Lines and Text Messaging Begins Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5, on FOX

AT&T IDOL Fan Meter Also Gives At-Home Viewers A New Way to Interact

In an innovative, fun and engaging new voting feature beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5, AMERICAN IDOL is offering fans the opportunity to "SuperVote" online for their favorite contestant(s) using FOX's new patent-pending voting experience within the AT&T AMERICAN IDOL VOTE. In 2011, IDOL introduced an online voting window in which fans could cast their votes for that evening's performances. Now with AMERICAN IDOL's SuperVote, fans can cast 50 votes all at once.

Viewers will be able to SuperVote - cast multiple votes at one time - via any of these AT&T AMERICAN IDOL VOTE destinations: americanidol.com, the AMERICAN IDOL mobile app (data and message rates may apply) and Facebook. To SuperVote, fans can allocate any number of votes for one contestant or multiple contestants, for a total of 50 votes (across all online voting destinations), and in a unique interactive experience, they can adjust their vote selections as performances happen during the show. When the voting window officially opens, fans can submit their final votes - all at once. [Only fans with a registered Facebook account in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will be able to cast their vote(s) online.]

Sponsored by AT&T, online voting begins immediately after the first performance show airing tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on FOX.

In addition to online voting, fans will continue to be able to vote during the voting window via toll-free phone lines, as well as text-messaging for AT&T wireless customers (standard text-messaging rates may apply). At the end of each performance show, the phone lines will open for at least two hours and AMERICAN IDOL viewers will be able to vote for their favorite contestant(s) via the toll-free telephone numbers (1-866-IDOLS-01, -02, etc.). AT&T wireless customers can use their cell phones to vote by texting the word "VOTE" to the four-digit short code (5701, 5702, etc.) that corresponds with the contestant of their choice. AMERICAN IDOL voting is managed by Telescope, Inc.

The 10 girl semifinalists take the stage for the first time tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), and the 10 guy semifinalists sing their hearts out for America and the judges on the following night Wednesday, March 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). Then, this season's finalists will be announced Thursday, March 7 (8:00-9:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Last week, IDOL also introduced the AT&T IDOL Fan Meter, with onscreen graphics which enable viewers to interact with the show via social media, with results shown in real time. In a broadcast television first, viewers were asked if they agreed or disagreed with the judges' critiques by using the hashtags #idolagree and #idoldisagree. Then, almost immediately, the AT&T IDOL Fan Meter showed the poll results as Tweets were tallied, bringing home the live in-studio audience experience and allowing the at-home viewers' opinions to be heard.

AMERICAN IDOL is produced by 19 Entertainment, a division of Core Media Group, and FremantleMedia North America. The series is created and executive-produced by Simon Fuller, CEO, XIX Entertainment. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, FremantleMedia; Trish Kinane, FremantleMedia North America; Ken Warwick, FremantleMedia North America; and Nigel Lythgoe, CEO, Nigel Lythgoe Productions also serve as executive producers.
