LOS ANGELES The 11 contestants left on Fox s reality hit American Idol are getting another shot at stardom.
Phone numbers that allowed viewers to pick their favorite contestant were incorrectly displayed during Tuesday s show, prompting a re-vote during the show scheduled to air tonight, the network said in a statement.
Phone lines will remain open for two hours following the episode, when another singer will be booted off this week by viewers. The contestant with the fewest votes goes home.
In the running are Bo Bice, Anthony Fedorov, Constantine Maroulis, Anwar Robinson, Scott Savol, Nikko Smith, Mikalah Gordon, Jessica Sierra, Vonzell Solomon, Nadia Turner and Carrie Underwood.
The series, which is in its fourth season, draws nearly 30 million viewers an episode.
