Watch American Idol season 16, episode 14 online”

Viewers from throughout the United States will be able to watch - and vote - in real-time, thus allowing for a live results reveal at the end of the broadcast.

"We set out on a journey to find the best talent this nation has to offer", said Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, in a statement.

Those live results are possible because the show will air live in all four USA time zones and thus both coasts, starting at 8 p.m. ET on the east coast and 5 p.m. PT on the west coast.

"American Idol" is about do something it's never done before: It will let viewers across the country vote simultaneously during a live, nationwide broadcast.

ABC is making the move - the first ever for a reality-competition series - as the contest moves into the finals, with 14 singers left in the competition.

American Idol's final performance episode on May 20 will allow viewers to vote overnight for the show's victor with the results announced on the May 21 season finale. SNL then kept the live broadcasts live across all time zones for its following cycle - season 43, which is now airing.

ABC (5.930 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.2, #1) was back on top in demos on Sunday with its mix of "America's Funniest Home Videos" (5.611 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 1.0, #2), "American Idol" (7.365 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 1.5, #1) and "Deception" (3.378 million viewers, #10; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T10).

Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan will be there as always to chime in, but the real news is the eliminations.

Meanwhile, CBS' 60 Minutes (0.7, 8.77M) fell 36% compared to previous week's 1.1 demo rating when it enjoyed that ACM Awards lead-out, though the newsmag handily won its 7 PM time period in viewers with a 56% lead over closest competitor. For the performance finale on May 20, viewers will be able to vote overnight and results will be announced on the May 21 season finale.
