It's a full week of 'American Idol' on DISH Network, starting with the live performance of the top 12 guys tonight (Tuesday), followed by the top 12 female finalists tomorrow night (Wednesday) and the results shows on Thursday. Tonight on 'American Idol,' the judging is in the voters' hands with the first live performance by the top 12 guys in the competition, watch it in HD on FOX, part of DISH Network programming. Tonight's show will also mark the first time in 'Idol' history that viewers can go online to AmericanIdol.com to cast their votes after the show. Since the show is bringing in an online component for the first time ever, we thought it'd be beneficial for us to point out to those of you with Google TV how seamless you can incorporate the online voting to your viewing experience. While you're watching 'American Idol' live, you can simultaneously chat with your friends on Twitter and then move directly to the 'American Idol' website after the show to cast your vote for your favorite male singer.
