FAQs on how to vote on AMERICAN IDOL SEASON 11.

There are three ways for you to vote for your next American Idol: (1) Toll-free Voting; (2) AT&T Text Voting (SMS); and (3) Online Voting at www.AmericanIdol.com as described below.

  1. (1) Toll-free Voting:  Each contestant will be assigned his or her own toll-free number during the performance show each Wednesday (except for the first week of the competition, the performance shows will air Tuesday February 28 and Wednesday February 29).  To vote, simply watch American Idol on FOX each week (see local listings for dates/times in your area) and dial the telephone number of the contestant for whom you wish to vote.
  2. (2) AT&T Text Voting:  Each contestant will be assigned his or her own SMS/text message short code number each Wednesday (except for the first week of the competition, the performance shows will air Tuesday February 28 and Wednesday February 29).  AT&T wireless customers only may text the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers promoted for each contestant.  Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers.
  3. (3) Online Voting: If you have a Facebook account you can also vote online at www.AmericanIdol.com.

Voting will open at the end of each performance show.  If voting by toll-free or text messaging, during the show you just need to note the number of the contestant you want to vote for and then call or text after the show is over.  You will have at least 2 hours to cast your votes.  Online voting is limited to 50 votes per account ID, per performance show, and closes 2 hours after the Hawaii broadcast.

Rules and procedures are subject to change at producers’ discretion without notice.

  1. (1) Toll-free Voting:  Telephone calls to American Idol voting lines are toll-free.  If you use a mobile phone to call, calling plan minutes will be used or deducted according to terms of your carrier’s calling plan.  Note, if you reach a number which asks you to enter credit card information, you have misdialed and reached a service not connected with American Idol so you should hang up, check the correct number and dial again.
  2. (2) AT&T Text Voting:  If you vote using AT&T Text Voting then the cost of voting varies depending on your AT&T wireless text messaging package.  If you do not have an AT&T wireless text messaging package, AT&T standard text messaging rates apply to messages sent and received.  You will be charged for each message sent from and received by your wireless device, regardless of delivery and including invalid votes cast outside of the specified time period.  Some messages sent to you will be free; these messages will be identified by the phrase ‘AT&T Free Msg.’ See www.ATT.com for details, or visit an AT&T store.  Please note that “premium” rates do not apply to American Idol text votes.
  3. (3) Online Voting:  Online Voting is free except for your standard internet access charges or data charges if you are using a web browser on your mobile device.
  1. (1) Toll-free Voting:  You may vote as many times as you like via toll-free.
  2. (2) AT&T Text Voting:  You may vote as many times as you like via AT&T Text Voting.
  3. (3) Online Voting:  You may vote up to 50 times per account ID per performance show via Online Voting.
  1. (1) Toll-free Voting:  If you are calling the toll-free numbers to cast your vote, your vote will count if you hear the ‘thanks for voting’ message.
  2. (2) AT&T Text Voting:  If you are voting by the AT&T Text Voting method, your vote(s) will count if you receive a ‘thanks for voting’ confirmation message per Contestant voted for.  This message may take some time to be received.  You will receive only one ‘thanks for voting’ text confirmation message for each Contestant you vote for during a voting period, regardless of how many times you vote. Your text vote was not sent successfully if your handset reads ‘message not sent’.
  3. (3) Online Voting:  If you are voting online at www.AmericanIdol.com using a Facebook account, you will receive a ‘thanks for voting’ confirmation message page after each vote.  However, please note that if you vote online only your first 50 votes will count. After your 50th vote, no further votes will count for that performance show even though you will continue to see the ‘thanks for voting’ page.

If you are experiencing trouble with any of the voting methods, remember that you can always try another voting method.

The performance/voting shows will air on FOX each week (see your local listings for show dates and times) and the results will be broadcast on FOX every Thursday.  So, make sure you don’t miss the results show if you want to see how your vote affected the results!

Yes, you can vote using your cell phone, although cell minutes will be used even though the call is toll-free.  Contact your cell phone service provider if you want to know how much you will be charged.  Additionally, if you are an AT&T wireless customer you can vote using text messaging. Standard text messaging fees will apply – see the How Much Does It Cost To Vote? question for more details.  Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers.

If you are calling or text voting from a cell phone and you are in a different time zone from your cell phone number, the voting systems will accept or reject your vote based on the time zone of your cell phone area code.  For example, if you have a New York cell phone area code but are calling from Los Angeles after the West Coast broadcast, you will be voting outside the East Coast voting window and your vote will not be accepted so try calling again from a landline telephone during the West Coast voting window or use another vote method.

Text messaging – sometimes known as SMS (short messaging service) – is a way of communicating short text messages via your cell phone.  Most (but not all) handsets have this feature.  For American Idol, only AT&T wireless customers can vote by text message using their cell phone keypad to write the message ‘VOTE’ and sending it to a 4 digit short code relating to the contestant for whom you wish to vote.  This 4 digit short code, such as 5701, relates directly to your contestant of choice and will be displayed on the show.  Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers.

As with the toll-free voting, each contestant will also be assigned his or her own AT&T text message number during the show – this 4 digit short code number will appear on your TV screen alongside the toll-free phone numbers.  To vote by text if you are an AT&T wireless customer, simply watch American Idol on FOX each week, input the word ‘VOTE’ into a new text message on your cell phone and send this message to the 4 digit short code number assigned to your contestant of choice (such as 5701 for Contestant 1).  Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers.  If done correctly, you will receive a message confirming your first valid vote per contestant during the voting window regardless of how many votes you cast.

AT&T text message voting will open at the end of each performance show and stay open for at least 2 hours, subject to local time zone limitations.  Voting will NOT be open during the show or outside the two hour time period determined by the area code on your cell phone.  Votes sent outside of the voting window will be invalid, and you will receive a message saying the window is closed.  If you are sending your text vote from a cell phone with an area code that is in a different time zone from that in which you are texting, the network will accept or reject your vote based on the time zone of your telephone area code.  For example, if you have a New York cell phone area code but are voting from Los Angeles during the West Coast voting window, your vote will not be accepted so try calling the toll-free number from a land line during the West Coast voting window instead.

You can opt-out from receiving non-vote confirmation AT&T marketing messages by replying to any marketing message with the word STOP.

Voting for American Idol opens after the performance show each Wednesday (except for the first week of voting, the performance shows will air on Tuesday and Wednesday), and will stay open for at least 2 hours, subject to local time zone limitations.  Votes cast outside of this voting window will be invalid.  Only send the word ‘VOTE’ to the 4 digit short code numbers you see on screen, you cannot send a text message to the toll-free numbers.

The cost of voting for AT&T wireless customers varies depending on your AT&T wireless text messaging package.  If you do not have an AT&T wireless text messaging package, AT&T standard text messaging rates apply to messages sent and received.  You may be charged for each message sent from and received by your wireless device, regardless of delivery and including invalid votes cast outside of the specified time period.  Some messages sent to you will be free; these messages will be identified by the phrase ‘AT&T Free Msg.’ Seewww.ATT.com for details, or visit an AT&T store.  Please note that “premium” rates do not apply to American Idoltext votes.

You can opt-out from receiving non-vote confirmation AT&T messages by replying to any marketing message with the word STOP.

When texting your vote, you should send your vote to only one shortcode/text number at a time. If you do not receive a ‘thanks for voting’ confirmation message (one per contestant you vote for) then your vote will not count and you should try again by sending to a single short code at a time

Online Voting is available to Facebook account holders.  Simply go to www.AmericanIdol.com and follow the links to vote.  Vote online at the end of each performance show.  Online voting closes 2 hours after the Hawaii broadcast of a performance show. During the vote window, you will see a ‘vote’ button.  When you click on the ‘vote’ button you will be directed to a Facebook login page where you will need to enter your e-mail address and password to log in (if you are not already logged in to Facebook).  If you do not currently have a Facebook account then you will not be able to vote online unless you create a new account (but you can still vote via toll-free and if you are an AT&T wireless customer you can also vote via AT&T Text Voting).  Once you successfully log in using your Facebook account you will be prompted to select the contestant for whom you want to vote and complete a ‘CAPTCHA’ and click ‘vote’.  A CAPTCHA is a security measure which requires you to enter the scrambled letters/numbers you see on your screen.  If you do not correctly enter the CAPTCHA information you will be prompted to try again.  If you successfully submit your vote, you will receive a page that thanks you for your vote and confirms that this activity has been added to your Facebook Timeline, Ticker and Newsfeed. Your vote will be added to Facebook only once for each finalist for which you submit a vote, and you will have the option to add a message to the Facebook post. If you do not want your vote activity to be added to Facebook, you can remove the individual vote post by clicking the ‘Remove’ link next to the vote confirmation message on the thank you page. Alternatively, you can turn the ‘Add activity to Timeline’ feature off entirely by clicking the ‘Off’ button in the top right-hand corner of the page. If you turn the feature off, you will be presented with the option to post your vote to Facebook by clicking the ‘SHARE YOUR VOTE’ button on the thank you page. This will also allow you to share your vote only once per finalist. The ‘Add activity to Timeline’ feature can be toggled on and off at any time.

You may vote up to 50 times per account ID per performance show.  Any additional votes you cast or attempt to cast above this limit will NOT count.

If you are experiencing trouble with any vote method, remember that you can always try another voting method.
