"One thing America doesn't know about me is that I have never driven a car in my life � ever! I live in New York City, so who needs one?"

On Wednesday, Dec. 9 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), Season Eight AMERICAN IDOL winner Kris Allen and pop sensations Wonder Girls will take the stage. Allen will perform his newest single, "Live Like You're Dying," and Wonder Girls will sing their hit song, "Nobody," before America's vote is revealed and Cat Deeley names the six dancers who will perform in the following week's finale.

Kris Allen won the hearts of America each week on AMERICAN IDOL by adding his signature pop-rock sound to each performance he gave. Allen who hails from Conway, AR, is a pianist and self-taught guitar player. He recently released his debut self-titled album on 19 Recordings/ Jive Records, and his first single from the album, "Live Like We're Dying," has received rave reviews and is currently climbing the U.S. radio charts.

Pop sensation Wonder Girls sold over 30,000 copies of their debut single "Nobody" during the week of October 11 earning them the No. 76 position with a bullet on the Hot 100. This is the first time ever a music group from South Korea has debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Already a hit in Asia, the Wonder Girls are striking a chord with a young U.S. audience, having just completed their first U.S. concert tour with the Jonas Brothers.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions. The series is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Barry Adelman.
