(LOS ANGELES) -- American Idol officially announced Thursday that it will allow viewers to vote for their favorite contestants online this season.
If you want to cast your vote via the Internet, you'll need to access the American Idol voting page using a Facebook account. You can find more details on AmericanIdol.com once the top 24 performance week begins March 1st.
As usual, you'll also be able to vote by phone and, if you're an AT&T wireless customer, by text message.
