It's Tuesday, and we all know what that means... it's time for another American Idol live blog. Tonight, the Top 8 girls will perform live for your votes at 8:00 PM on FOX. Come on in to your open thread!

Live Blogging American Idol, Season Nine: Top 8 Girls PerformS

In case you weren't tipped off by the fact that I got this post up a few minutes late tonight, it's been a crazy day and so, unfortunately, I didn't have time to go back through last Wednesday's live blog and choose some of my favorite comments. Sorry! But fret not, dahlings, as I'll include that list—and my list from tonight's post—in tomorrow night's live blog for the Top 8 guys. But again, apologies for the delay.

As always, the show starts at 8:00 PM ET and airs live on FOX. Things are back to normal this week, so tonight we'll be hearing from the ladies (assuming Crystal Bowersox doesn't randomly get sick again at the last minute).

While you wait for the episode to start, feel free to chat in the comments below. If you're new to Idol—or want a refresher on everything—here are some helpful links:

If you haven't participated in one of our live blogs before, don't fret-it's easy! All you need to do is tune your TV to FOX, watch the show, and discuss all the action with everyone else in the comments. It's really as simple as that. If you don't have a commenter account, just sign up for one (it literally takes seconds) and we'll get you approved and in on the action right away.

I'll see you in the comments!
