The Top 7 performed on "American Idol" last night and tonight everyone will find out who goes home and who will make it into the Top 6 for next week.  

The results night on "American Idol" are always looking to fill time for the hour but one good thing they do is bring in outside performers.  This year they brought in a top selling pop artist or band along with a performance from an Idol alum.  

Some of the previous artists to perform this year have been Bon Jovi, Ne-Yo and One Republic.  The Idol alum performances have included Jessica Sanchez, Colton Dixon and Phillip Phillips.  

Tonight performing is the country pop princess, Carrie Underwood.  

Underwood along with Kelly Clarkson have done what every Idol hopeful dreams of, being an Idol alum AND a pop super star.  With "American Idol" this formula has been harder to reach then you would think, with these contestants performing in front of millions every night on TV.  It shows that it takes a lot more then just a good voice to capitalize on the success.  You must have a unique voice, unique marketability and have a great management team to lead you in the right direction for endorsements and to find the right songs to put on your record.  

Carrie Underwood will be gracing the Idol stage tonight singing her new single, "See You Again".  This song was written by Underwood along with Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges.  "See You Again" is the fourth single off her platinum-selling album, "Blown Away."

Underwood had released four records since winning "American Idol" and just recently celebrated her 17th number one song.
