vote for Fantasia or Diana now.
If you’re in the eastern part of the country, you can now vote for your American Idol 3 pick. Producers have added extra phone lines for each contestant to alleviate congestion–although their odd/even system is bound to confuse the hell out of some people.

  • To vote for Fantasia Barrino, call 866.IDOLS.02, 866.IDOLS.04, or 866.IDOLS.06.
  • To vote for Diana DeGarmo, call 866.IDOLS.01, 866.IDOLS.03, 866.IDOLS.05.
  • You have four hours to vote (until 1 a.m. ET). Other time zones will follow. Each contestant performed three songs, including the single that the winner will record. Having exhausted all hyperbole in his repitoire, Simon told Fantasia after her second song that she was the best singer any Idol competition in any country anywhere in the known universe has ever seen, ever. The results come tomorrow night.
