Giraud Squad

You've only got from 9 to 11 p.m. Tuesday to phone or text in your votes for Kalamazoo "American Idol" finalist Matt Giraud.

Overview: Each contestant is assigned his or her own toll-free number and text-message short-code number. (Those text-messaging must only send the word "VOTE" to the four-digit number.)

Getting the numbers: Contestants' digits are announced during the live-performance shows airing at 8 p.m. Tuesdays on Fox TV. Numbers are not released in advance.
Hours for voting: Phone lines are open only for two hours immediately after the live-performance show.

How many times can you vote? You can vote an unlimited number of times.

Cost to vote Phone calls to "Idol" voting lines are toll-free. If you choose to use a cell phone rather than a land line, note that cell minutes will be used, even though it is toll-free call. Additionally, standard text-message fees will apply for those using AT&T Mobility Text Messaging.

Results show: Airs 9 p.m. Wednesdays.
