Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, AMERICAN IDOL XIII continues next week with a special three-night event called "Rush Week," including two nights of live performances and the season's first LIVE results show - with special wild card picks by the judges. Also, in a new twist, not every semi-finalist will get a chance to perform. It will be up to the judges to decide which 10 of the 15 girl semi-finalists and which 10 of the 15 guy semi-finalists earn a spot on the performance shows, while the remaining five girls and five guys are sent home. On Tuesday, Feb. 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live /PT tape-delayed), the results of America's vote on which guy - Neco Starr or Ben Briley - will get the final spot in the Top 30 will be revealed. Also, Randy Jackson returns as in-house mentor, and the Top 15 girls will take the brand-new stage designed by award-winning designer Baz Halpin. On Wednesday, Feb. 19 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live /PT tape-delayed), the Top 15 guys will take the stage, trying to hold onto their spots as the stakes get higher.

Then on Thursday, Feb. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 10 finalists chosen by America - five girls and five guys - will be revealed, followed by the judges' wild card picks to round out 13 finalists in the first results show LIVE from Los Angeles.
