AMERICAN IDOL Fan Save on Twitter Adds Dramatic Real-Time Twist to Season XIV!

Beginning this week, IDOL fans have the opportunity to save a finalist from elimination by a real-time vote using Twitter. Once host Ryan Seacrest announces the bottom two finalists and they perform, the IDOL Fan Save hashtag #Save(ContestantName) for each will appear on air, and fans across the country will have a short window (approximately five minutes) to Tweet their Save votes (one per Twitter account). Once the IDOL Fan Save window closes, no more votes will be accepted and the real-time, immediate results will be revealed by Ryan Seacrest.

Those fans who are not able to watch AMERICAN IDOL XIV during the East Coast or central time broadcast, can follow @AmericanIdol on Twitter to find out which contestants are in the bottom and when the vote window is open and/or watch the live stream from the studio by visiting Viewers can see the results of the Twitter vote on AMERICAN IDOL XIV when it airs in their markets.
