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.
