'American Idol' Fans to Write Finale Song for Taio Cruz

'American Idol' fans, Taio Cruz needs your help! The British R&B crooner has been tapped to perform an original song at the May 25 finale and 'Idol' wants fans to pen the lyrics!
Beginning tonight, fans can listen to the opening of Taio's new tune on the official 'Idol' site and submit their own original lyrics. The contest will feature four submission phases yielding three finalists, which fans will choose among.
Of course, this isn't the first time fans have had a hand in writing a song for the finale. Season 6 coronation song, "This Is My Now," and season 7's "Time of My Life" both came out of a fan songwriting contest. But writing a tune for a particular artist, is another season 10 innovation.
