Hey [article id="1486475"]"American Idol"[/article] fans! If you're counting down the hours until our brand-new weekly interactive online series, [article id="1658897"]"Idol Party Live,"[/article] which kicks off on Thursday night (March 3) at 10 p.m. ET, we've got even more news for you. This week's special guests include EW.com's "Idol" writer Annie Barrett, who'll be co-hosting, and Liz Lee of MTV's "My Life as Liz."
Hosted by "Idol" expert/superfan and MTV News correspondent Jim Cantiello, "Idol Party Live" is your new destination for can't-miss post-game analysis, commentary, interviews, conspiracy theories, "Idol" insanity, karaoke and more.
Every Thursday, immediately following the "American Idol" results show, Jim and a special celeb guest will gab about all the drama, music and Steven Tyler-isms that make "Idol" a TV addict's dream. Plus, viewers can join in the fun by tweeting their passionate opinions with the hashtag #idolparty. The best tweets will get shout-outs live on the air, and our favorite commenters may be asked to Skype in for a future episode.
And since it wouldn't be an "Idol" show without some ear-piercing karaoke, each episode will end with Jim and his guests performing the song they would have selected had they been on "Idol" that week. Jim might even take a few karaoke performance suggestions from the viewers playing along at home.
So don't miss the premiere of "Idol Party Live" on MTV.com Thursday night at 10 p.m. ET, the moment "Idol" goes off the air. (Don't worry West Coasters, we'll have the entire show archived on the site by the time the results show airs in your neck of the woods.)
