America has spoken and finalist Curtis Finch, Jr. was eliminated tonight from the AMERICAN IDOL competition. After receiving the least number of votes, Finch said goodbye to his fellow finalists and to IDOL judges Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban. From St. Louis, MO, the 24-year-old Finch sang "I Believe" on last night's performance show, which was originally sung by IDOL winner Fantasia.

Also on tonight's results show, Bon Jovi rocked the house with their song "Because We Can" from their latest album and Season 11 IDOL champion Phillip Phillips had the audience on its feet with his hit single, and this season's "goodbye" song, "Gone, Gone, Gone."

In addition to the results, AMERICAN IDOL is sending an 11th finalist on the "American Idol Live!" tour this summer, brought to you by AT&T. The two semifinalists who performed tonight in hopes of joining the tour were Charlie Askew, who performed "Sky Blue Diamond" and Aubrey Cleland who performed "Out Here On My Own." It's up to the viewers to decide who goes and fans are encouraged to visit www.americanidol.com or use the AMERICAN IDOL App to select which contestant they want to win the coveted spot.

Next week, on Wednesday, March 20 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top Nine finalists will take to the IDOL stage once again to perform songs of John Lennon and Paul McCartney for America's votes! In addition, the fans' choice for the 11th person to join the "American Idol LIVE!" tour will be revealed.
