If you want to see this year's crop of American Idol finalists up close and personal, grab your tickets for this year's American Idol Live tour.  The trek gets underway June 24 in Binghamton, NY and is right now scheduled to run through August 23, wrapping up in Redmond, Washington. Tickets go on sale May 9 at AmericanIdol.com/tour.

Buying the tickets also helps you do some good.  One dollar from every ticket purchased will be donated to the Melanoma Research Alliance to help cure that disease.

Unlike some tours in the past, this year's trek will be limited to the Top 10 finalists: C.J. Harris , Jena Irene , Caleb Johnson , Jessica Meuse , MK Nobilette , Alex Preston , Dexter Roberts , Majesty Rose , Malaya Watson and Sam Woolf .  Of those ten, Majesty, MK and Malaya have already been eliminated, but of course, they'll return for the tour.

This year's winner will be crowned Wednesday, May 21, and he or she will receive the prime spot on the bill during the tour.
