If you are wondering: is American Idol on tonight and is it a new episode? The answer is yes it is, and it's going to be a great show!

 

Tonight, American Idol 2013 returns with a jam-packed one-hour results show. In addition to finding out which of the Top 10 hopefuls has reached the end of his or her Idol journey, there will be two exciting live performances. Phillip Phillips will grace the Idol stage once again to sing his new single, “Gone, Gone, Gone”. And the pride of New Jersey, Bon Jovi, will also perform “Because We Can,” the lead single off their new album.
 
And, in the “love it or hate it, but it’s coming” category -- the group performances are back. Oh joy! The Top 10 will be performing “Shine Your Way,” which is a song off the soundtrack for upcoming animated film The Croods. There’s no word yet on live singing versus lip synching, but we’re certainly hoping for live!
 
With the help of the super-efficient Ryan Seacrest, the show will somehow manage to also fit in the sing-off between the sixth-place guy and the sixth-place girl to find out who will win the 11th spot to go on the American Idols LIVE! Tour this summer. We are dying to find out who the sixth-place guy and girl are!

Talk about a whirlwind show -- don’t forget to tune in to FOX for tonight’s one-hour show (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed)!
