Top 10 'American Idol' finalists announced

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES -

The final 10 contestants of "American Idol" were announced on Tuesday. America chose their favorites with this week's vote, and the judges think they got it right.  

"We were holding our breath for a few of them, and it was a huge relief for us," said America Idol judge Keith Urban.

Judge Mariah Carey says she glad some of her favorites made it through.

Angie Miller, Kree Harrison, Candice Glover, Janelle Arthur, Amber Holcomb, Lazaro Arbos, Paul Jolley, Burnell Taylor, Curtis Finch Jr. and Devin Velez all made the cut.

All of the contestants will get to perform on a nationwide tour this summer, and a wild card contestant will also be chosen to join them.

FOX 5's Paul Milliken was out in Los Angeles for the announcement, where he interviewed many of the finalists as well as the show's judges and host.

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.

    New York City is exploring ways to curb the speed of taxis. The Taxi and Limousine Commission this week issued a request for information on "anti speeding vehicle technologies."  The measures include devices that can intervene when drivers exceed posted speeds and "advisory systems" that can sound alarms when reckless driving is detected.
