With just two more weeks until America crowns the Season 10 winner of AMERICAN IDOL, Wednesday, May 25 (8:00-10:07 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), AT&T* today announced exciting ways fans can still interact with their favorite Idol contestants – from joining an Idol contestant on a hometown visit to meeting favorite contestants from seasons’ past.
New Idol-themed events happening through the end of the season include:
AT&T Idol Celebration: As part of the finale activities, AT&T will host a first-ever free AT&T Idol Celebration – on-site in Los Angeles – just before the final performance show on Tuesday, May 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). The celebration begins at 1 p.m. PT. Former Idol contestants scheduled to perform include: Kimberly Caldwell (Season 2), Diana DeGarmo (Season 3), Bo Bice (Season 4), Ace Young (Season 5), Blake Lewis (Season 6) and Jason Castro (Season 7). Talent subject to change.
AT&T Idol Superfan Contest: Three “AT&T Idol Superfans” will join the remaining contestants – Lauren Alaina, Scott McCreery and Haley Reinhart – on hometown visits tomorrow, May 14. The Idols will visit a local AT&T store and be greeted by one of the Superfan contest winners. The winners were selected after submitting an essay convincing AT&T that they are the ultimate AMERICAN IDOL fan.

AT&T $10,000,000 Idol® Sweepstakes!: Delivering its largest Idol sweepstakes to date, one lucky fan is winning a trip for two to the AMERICAN IDOL finale with a chance to play for up to $10 million on May 24.
