Google announced on Wednesday that American Idol fans can now vote for their favorite performers directly from its search results. The company announced a partnership with Fox, which makes Google an official voting platform for the show.
Users can search for “american idol” or even just “idol” during the voting window from Google.com or the Google Search App on iOS or Android, and will be presented with the finalists like so:
“Add up to 50 votes per contestant. You can select your favorites and submit your picks – directly from Google. You can vote for as many contestants as you want,” says product manager Ardan Arac. “Click submit to send your votes to American Idol. Then watch Idol videos on YouTube, share on Google+, or go back and vote for another contestant if you haven’t yet.”
The show’s live finalist performances begin tonight.
