It's the moment American Idol fans wait anxiously for every year -- we get to make our opinions heard. Tonight (Tuesday) kicks off the live performances, which also means that contestants are eliminated by fan votes.

The 10 male semi-finalists go at it tonight, vying for five slots in the finals. But this year, you don't have to keep calling back over and over to vote multiple times -- you can cast up to 50 votes instantly, allocating them however you want.
