On Tuesday, April 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top 9 finalists –Crystal Bowersox, Lee DeWyze, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Aaron Kelly, Michael Lynche, Siobhan Magnus, Katie Stevens and Tim Urban – will perform selections from the legendary songbook of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
Tune in the following night, Wednesday, April 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to see Rihanna perform her hit “Te Amo” and to find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition.
