When American Idol debuted 9 years ago, we decided that Kelly Clarkson was going to be our first American Idol by voting using our phones, then a few years ago Idol producers let us vote by sending it in via text message and now this year not only can you vote by phone and text we'll be able to do it via a Facebook app!

We'll find out how to use the social network platform to vote for our favorite singer on Tuesdays show.  American Idol is back for 3 nights this week - Tuesday the guys perform, Wednesday the girls perform and Thursday it's results night!
