songs performed by Season 10's Top 13 finalists on Wednesday night's
show are on sale exclusively on the iTunes Store as a compilation album.
Individual songs will also be available for sale.
With new judges, a brand-new set and one of the strongest lineups of
competitors since AMERICAN IDOL debuted in 2002, the series is drawing
unanimous praise from viewers and critics alike and generating
incredible ratings, keeping the show on top of the Nielsen rankings for
the 7th consecutive year. AMERICAN IDOL finalists have already sold
millions of songs on iTunes.
"That number could well surge once these latest songs are available for
download, thanks to the popularity of the Season 10 contestants," says
Simon Fuller, creator and executive producer of AMERICAN IDOL. "The
Season 10 Top 13 finalists have already got America talking."
The songs released on iTunes are studio versions recorded by the Idols
under the guidance of Jimmy Lovine's team, including some of the hottest
producers in the business, such as Rock Mafia, Rodney Jerkins, Don Was,
Jim Jonsin, Ron Fair and "Tricky" Stewart. The 13 individual tracks and
compilation album that's on sale now are the first to be released on
the 10 Recordings/Interscope label. The compilation album is on sale
