[via press release from FOX]



Special First-Time-Ever Musical Showcase from House of Blues Airs Wednesday, February 18, and Continues Thursday, February 19 When the Top 24 Contestants are Revealed

IDOL Takes a Two-Week Road Trip to Motown with Performances from The Fillmore Detroit Wednesday, February 25, Thursday, February 26, Wednesday, March 4 and Thursday, March 5

This week, the fun continues when 218 of the country's most amazing performers travel west to compete in AMERICAN IDOL XIV's Hollywood Week at the Orpheum Theatre, beginning tonight (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT), on FOX. Only 48 will make it through to the first-time-ever Showcase round, in which they will perform in front of a LIVE audience at the House of Blues in hopes of becoming one of the Top 24 semi-finalists. In another first, the Top 24 will hit the road to Detroit, MI, on the AMERICAN IDOL bus, for the first voting performance shows of the season.

After an intense four weeks of competition, 206 contestants will fall, leaving only 12 singers to fight for the right to be called the next AMERICAN IDOL.


Tonight (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT), the contestants arrive in the entertainment capital of the world for a shot at wowing the judges - Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. - with their vocal and performance abilities. In a new IDOL twist, the judges call upon the most memorable contestants from the first phase of the auditions to perform solos. Those who impress get a pass straight to Group Day and can breathe a huge sigh of relief. The remaining contestants then get their chance to perform for the judges.

On Group Day, the contestants must choose the best songs that highlight their individual vocals and showcase their ability to collaborate on Thursday, Feb. 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Known for shaking up even the most accomplished competitor, Group Day is a "make-or-break" moment for many singers.

Then, on Wednesday, Feb. 11 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Feb. 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the remaining hopefuls advance to solo performances with the band and sit down with the judges to talk shop and ask questions.


It's down to the "best of the best" as the remaining 48 hopefuls take the stage at House of Blues for the IDOL SHOWCASE airing Wednesday, Feb. 18 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Feb. 19 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). For some singers, it will be the first time they perform in front of a packed house. Everyone can sing, but can they withstand the pressure? Will they own the stage? Will they connect with the audience?

When the curtain closes at House of Blues, America's Top 24 semi-finalists will be revealed.


America, it's time to vote as the Top 24 semi-finalists hit the road in the AMERICAN IDOL bus to Detroit, MI. Travel and touring are part of the training to be a superstar, and what better place to visit than the home of Motown and countless musical greats.

On Wednesday, Feb. 25 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT), the Top 12 guys take the stage of The Fillmore Detroit theater to sing for the judges and for America's vote. Then, the Top 12 girls get their turn to impress America on Thursday, Feb. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).

On Wednesday, March 4 (8:00-9:01 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), on the first LIVE show of the season, host Ryan Seacrest will reveal which eight guys will get the chance to sing once again for America's vote to secure a spot as a Top Finalist. On Thursday, March 5 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), it's the girls' turn and the eight girls who received the highest votes will perform once again. On Wednesday, March 11 (8:00-9:01 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 12 finalists will be revealed from Los Angeles.


The competition gets even fiercer when the Top 12 perform LIVE Thursday, March 12 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live /PT tape-delayed). Two finalists' journey will end as America's vote is revealed Thursday, March 19 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live /PT tape-delayed).
