Lisa Marie Presley and AMERICAN IDOL Runner-Up Adam Lambert to Perform on Next Results Show Thursday, May 17

Two-Night Season 11 Finale Airs Tuesday, May 22 and Wednesday, May 23

Tonight, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez were named the Top Three AMERICAN IDOL finalists. One of them will be crowned the next AMERICAN IDOL, but not before all three travel back to their hometowns, to see family, friends and fans. After America cast a season-high 70 million votes for their favorite finalists, it also was revealed that Hollie Cavanagh had received the fewest number of votes and was eliminated from the competition.

With only two performance shows left in the season, tune in next week, Wednesday, May 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when the Top Three return to their hometowns and find out what songs the judges and Jimmy Iovine have chosen for them to perform. Each finalist will sing three songs: "Judges' Choice"; "Jimmy's Choice"; and "Their Choice."

Don't miss the live results show the following night, Thursday, May 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), when host Ryan Seacrest will announce the Top Two finalists who battle it out in the Grand Finale. In addition, Lisa Marie Presley will perform "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," from her new album "Storm & Grace," and Season Eight runner-up Adam Lambert performs his new song, "Never Close Our Eyes."

As the Top Three prepare to return to their hometowns, here's what they're looking forward to:

JOSHUA: "Performing at the Burton Coliseum. I'm excited to see it filled with my friends and family!"

JESSICA: "I'm excited to see my friends and family and I want to visit Eastlake Middle School. I love my fans in San Diego so much. I want to give them all kisses!"

PHILLIP: "There are so many things I am looking forward to - seeing my family, jamming out with the guys, chicken and cheese nachos and homemade chicken pot pie!"
